COME BACK FROM A NEGATIVE REVIEW
In Thailand, the Sea View Resort and Spa in Koh Chang filed criminal charges against a guest for posting negative reviews!
The lawsuit led to the disgruntled guest, an American ex-pat, being arrested and held in jail for two days after being charged under Thailand’s strict defamation laws.
The guest had posted reviews on Tripadvisor accusing the property of ‘modern-day slavery’.
Reading that a reviewer was arrested and jailed for two days for a negative review seems crazy, unfathomable and dare I say, unprecedented (don’t you just love that word!).
However, it appears the disgruntled guest did a little more than leaving a negative review on Tripadvisor.
