The Thailand version of Bribespot.com has gone live. The website and cloud application invites users to enter details of any corruption on a map of the country. It works with PCs, smartphones and other devices, and the Thailand map is already showing dozens of demands for bribes throughout the country. 

The main Bribespot website started in the Baltic states two years ago. The Thailand-specific page went online only a few weeks ago, although entries can be to any country or city, from any location. The main site now recognises connections from Thailand, and the map of the country, along with specific allegations of corruption, are recorded mostly in Thai.

Almost all the early entries on the app are alleged graft or shakedowns by officials, policemen and taxi drivers.
