Justice in Thailand is how much money can we get’ – Tim ‘Sharky’ Ward


A short film showing Tim ‘Sharky’ Ward’s battle with police in Pattaya has been put up on the net by Australian based ‘Sneaky TV’.

The quote above is an abbreviated quote from an interview which forms a basis for the film.

The film pulls no punches, unlike Sharky, who makes a number of air punches in front of police and journalists

Ward, originally from New Zealand, but who made his name in nightclubs and running a money lending business on Queensland’s Cold Coast has now come to an arrangement with local police after he accused them of trying to set him up on drugs charges and taking gold from his apartment.

However on the film he states that if you make a pact with the police you make a pact with the devil. He claimed people arrested in Pattaya were encouraged to commit more crimes to pay themselves off.

So while he may have changed his attitude, he does not appear to have changed his views. The recent arrests in Bangkok have caused him great excitement on his Facebook page which he claims gets 100,000 hits daily.

“People want to see if I have been killed yet.”

He certainly appeared to clear the decks at Pattaya police station whenever he turned up.

No need to comment further on this video. It also shows his confrontation with the Pattaya rat pack – the journalists who follow police calls.
