THAILAND’S INTERNET WARRIORS – REVIEWED
Visitors to Thailand who need legal help might do well to avoid companies called Alba Laws, One-Stop-Services, and PAPPA Co Ltd.
Never mind that the structures of these companies are a bit dodgy, if you get involved in a dispute with their bosses, Brian Goudie aka Goldie, Drew Walter Noyes, and their ‘gopher’ David Hanks, you might get accused of being anything from being a murderer to a paedophile on the internet.
So there is something rather droll about recent attempts by Hanks and Goudie to sue Google claiming the ‘right to be forgotten’.
Goudie’s case was dismissed by Bangkok Criminal Court and if Google execs ever got to hear about it they would be laughing their socks off. Now they are trying to sue in Koh Samui using Hanks name. Hanks a former brothel owner in Melbourne is on bail at the moment for racketeering in Pattaya – lending money to Russians at 60 per cent per month.
Here follow a few samples of the accusations, internet blogs, put up by these guests of Thailand and how nasty they get.
Scott Palinkas was a friend of Drew Noyes, or so he thought, who paid one million baht for shares in the Pattaya Times.
For that he got a Drew Noyes arranged work permit, a Pattaya Times press card and a Pattaya Times jacket.
When he realised that the newspaper was a sham – and was not going to national, he complained. Drew Noyes went on the next saying he was wanted for murder in the Mexico. Palinkas, a native American, now has a retirement visa. He is not wanted for murder in Mexico.
Andre Machielsen, was also a friend of Noyes at the Pattaya City Expats Club until he found out the truth. He had initially supported Noyes.
As a result of changing sides Noyes started publishing stories saying Machielsen, a seasonal father Christmas, was a convicted druggie. There were no truth in the allegations.
When he felt out with rival newspaper owner Niels Colov of the Pattaya People Noyes went public saying Colov was a wife beater and former Copenhagen gangster.
These allegations have now been removed and Noyes made an out of court settlement with Colov on another matter. They are now allies.
The gangster allegations were however true. Colov the leader of the Pattaya Police Volunteers was in his younger days jailed for pimping and a few other things when he ran with the crowd in Vesterbro, a former red light district in Copenhagen.. He is now rehabilitated of course.
Ivan Schiffer was a former ‘journalist’ on the Pattaya Times. When he warned an American businessman not to go into business with Noyes, or invest any cash with him, Noyes went ballistic.
In his own newspaper the Pattaya Times across half a page he exposed his former reporter as a man with drugs convictions who was running an illicit oil therapy business.
Schiffer was reported to Immigration for overstay and deported to Brazil. He is now back running his legitimate oil therapy business in Thailand.
Scott Gold, wrote the original expose of Drew Noyes for the Wilmington Morning Star, which exposed Noyes as a man of myriad lies pursued by lawyers, who was involved in dodgy share and property deals, and who had demanded oral sex from a female employee or he would cut her hours. After first of all claiming the newspaper article was an April Fool’s Day joke (It was published on April 1 1995) Noyes changed tack claiming Scott had been fired for corrupt practices. Scott was of course not fired and is now a senior writer on the Los Angeles Times. Noyes did not sue.
When Drew Noyes fell out with Thor Halland, another former member of the Pattaya City Expats Club he put up a story claiming that Halland was a former psychiatric patient who was wanted by police. ‘Wanted by police’ is a recurring theme of Drew Noyes.
When Theo van der schaaf took a civil case against this Dutchman, one of the producers of a cartton rabbit television series called ‘Miffy’ – Drew Noyes went on the net and said he was the owner of a sex movie theatre in Amsterdam.
Andrew Drummond, is the author of this site. Drew Noyes reserves special attention for this journalist, who according to various blogs is ‘a convicted criminal’, has invented a journalism award, used to tap phones for the News of the World, is an alcoholic, etc. etc.
This is of course because Noyes activities are spotlighted here.
Apparently during Drummond’s sentencing his Thai colleague burst into tears and he was led off to be fingerprinted, cuffed and locked up.
Drummond is unaware of all this.
He also falsely claimed Drummond takes cash for for stories from people other than newspapers or media outlets.
There are numerous anonymous blogs and google pages put up in the name of Andrew Drummond on the net. Brian Goudie also attacks using anonymous blogspot sites such as casewatchasia, andrew-drummond-watch etc and would you believe paedophilewatch.
Ironically Goudie is actually an ex-con having been sentenced to six years in Australia for stealing some A$400,000 from a West Australia mining company
|Officer Trumbower on the case!|
Alastair Cooper works in an oil field somewhere off Vietnam. He is a supporter of Andrew Drummond and has contributed posts critical of Brian Goudie, David Hanks and Drew Noyes.
As a result posts were put on the internet on casewatchasia.com and on Facebook saying that Cooper was a drugs dealer and being investigated for plotting to kill Hilary Clinton.
The story was farcically accompanied by a picture of Hanks’ brother in law, officer Jason Trumbower, a University policeman in Florida with Bill Clinton.
