Video: Koh Phangan Russian mafia figure arrested after sneaking back in as Romanian with new name

Caption: Russian mafia figure arrested. Changed name and came back to Koh Phangan
 
A Russian - thrown out of Thailand three years ago for mafia activities - was caught sneaking back into Koh Phangan where he was formerly a well known bar owner. 
 
Since he was deported he had changed his name and nationality but not his face. 
 
He was picked up in Koh Phangan and taken by speedboat to Koh Samui immigration officers where he faced interrogation. It was a joint operation by the tourist police and Surat Thani immigration. 
 
A video on YouTube showed some of the aspects of his arrest after he disembarked from a boat wearing a cap. 
 
He was now using the name Sergiu Milentii, a 33 year old Romanian, according to his new passport on the Onbnews video.
 
But in reality he is a Russian national called Milintia Sergei (name transliterated from Thai script).
 
In January 2016 he was blacklisted from Thailand for ten years.
 
He was the owner of Similan Bar in Had Rin. He hired a hit man to shoot at Palita Lodge nearby and was also charged with offences related to his work and business practices. 
 
In the meantime he had returned to Europe and changed his name and nationality but not his face, reported Manager. 
 
They said he had sneaked back into Thailand through the Sungei Kolok immigration post on the Malaysian border and made his way to Koh Phangan. 
 
He is now in custody and helping the immigration police with their inquiries.

Given the amount of contreversy and media traction both locally and nationally, combined with the involvement of the then haadrin mayor, that the shooting had at the time, he is insane to return, he was remarkably well known before the incident and downright infamous afterward. 

 

He was on very borrowed time. 

 

But to rock up on the island on a passenger ferry with the knowledge that they frequently video passengers on disembarking is just idiocy. 

 

He could have got a few more days if he had popped for a private speedboat.

Bulls shit!!!

I know him from childhood, he never was a member of some kind of mafia groups or things like that, all the time he was working hard to obtain some results, it has no sense what it is written about him - I can’t believe what is happening there, now I am sure that is no safe for foreign people to make business in Thailand.

Never go back over old ground 

People are often creatures of habit.  There are some well written documentaries and fictional stories about people hiding from the law, on the run, etc.  Make for good reading.  This guy liked the place, missed the place, was familiar with the place.   Now whether any of the original charges are true, or he was just persecuted for being obnoxious, over reacted, or whatever... The point is he just assumed a false identity and traveled with fictitious documents.  The international airline and security agencies should weigh in and hammer him for that.   And the Thai officials I doubt will nor should show him much courtesy after re-entering Thailand illegally and not just by sneaking in, but by false identity, not to mention of course violating the expulsion order

Everything is a great lie and abuse. This article is full of slander, lies and misinformation.

 

I will explain them in turn:

 

1. He has not changed his name, nor his nationality. He has acquired another nationality, and of course he has retained his name.

 

His name in the Russian passport with which he first entered Thailand is "Milentii Seghei", not "Milintia" as he misinforms this article, and in the Romanian one is actually the "Milentii Sergiu".

 

This is no name change. It's just the translation of the Russian name "Seghei" into the Romanian "Sergiu".


He kept both his name and date of birth!

 

Why does this publication not publish a copy of the Russian passport? Because he intentionally lied to induce the idea that this man changed his name. A lie!

 

2. The second lie / disinflation is the so-called blacklisting for ten years. In fact it was only for 3 years and it expired in January 2016!

 

3. The biggest misinformation is, however, the joining of this man with the Russian mafia. He has not and has never had anything to do with mafia. He came to live, invest and work in Thailand with his wife and their 1 year old daughter! Has anyone ever heard of mobsters who move to a foreign country with their wife and child for one year?

 

These pseudo-accusations are ridiculous and have no real foundation. And their purpose is to create a fake image of a man as normal.

 

Shame the authorities in Thailand for this abuse and shame to the authors of this article for this series of lies, misinformation and slander!

 

Someone has to pay for all this! Romanian authorities have to get involved!

Wow big shame on the press and authorities if he actually just obtained another nationality aside of the already expired blacklisting.

I believe the word mafia is widely abused by Thai people and more a slang for anyone earning in a alternative way, more than a bit.

Would not be surprised if half my village also thinks I am mafia just because of being a foreigner, young, living here long term without a job.

Guess it is just because Thais generally only know to do illegal things such as scamming and stealing (if they don't have a normal job).

Cannot believe it’s happening. Do you really believe a man would bring his family on the island and exposse them all in such a stupid way if this was real? Considering the fact that more that 60% of citizens in his country possess a second citinzenship (allowed by law btw), it is a cause of manipulation to say that he changed his nationality to go back there. Who to blame if not a foreign citizen? He is a generous young man who cares about his family and the only reason he is on the island and works there is to provide appropiate support to his family, not more.
