Thailand's Don Mueang International Airport authorities on Saturday apologized to a Chinese tourist who was assaulted by the airport's security guard, reports the Xinhua News Agency.

The apology follows a video clip showing a security guard at Don Mueang airport attempting to hit a Chinese tourist, which triggered criticism.

At a press conference held on Saturday, September 29, Suteerawat Suwnnawat, general manager of the Don Meuang international airport, said the involved guard got into a dispute with the Chinese visitor outside the detention room; the latter was refused entry to Thailand. (China Plus)

Bangkok Post reports that the manager expressed regret over the incident, and apologized to the Chinese tourist at the conference, blaming miscommunication for the cause.

According to Xinhua News Agency, the manager said that the guard's action seriously violated relevant disciplinary protocol, and he ordered the guard to be suspended from duty pending a disciplinary investigation.

A formal apology will be sent to the Chinese Embassy by the airport, said the manager.

As Chinese tourists reportedly claimed refusal to give a tip led to his failed entry, the manager said the airport will make rectifying measures to improve visa services.

The chinese tourist had arrived from jakarta and had asked for a visa on arrival. This was refused because he could not provide details of accomodation, or proof of funds,so was escorted to a restricted area where he later re entered the airport which led to the clash with the security guard. He was later put on a flight to GZ later

If you apply for tourist visa in china you must give accomodation details, so maybe chinese tourists should brush up on local laws before visiting the country.
if you want something in life get off your backside, and do it yourself!! don't rely on others to do it for you

The Chinese never take No for an answer! They will kick up a fuss and create a scene, then accuse the other party of wrongdoing, except that in this case the airport guard did in fact fight with the Chinese tourist!

Yup, apology from another Southeast Asian neighbor.

I would like to see the day when China needs to apologize to some other country for a change.

That will be the day when FINALLY WE can do SOMETHING to others for a change.
