More bad foreigners arrested thanks to "Biometrics" at Thai airports

Naew Na reported that immigration police acting on the orders of chief Lt-Gen Sompong "Big Oud" Chingduang had arrested three more unwanted foreigners for crimes committed in Thailand.

 

They said that the biometric system had helped identify the culprits and their crimes.

 

It was all part of orders from the top - that meant PM Prayut Chan-ocha and RTP commander Gen Chakthip Chaijinda. 

The three cases described men identified only as A, B and C. 

 

Case A was a 32 year old Indian man who was on his way to Varanasi from Suvarnabhumi airport on July 12th. He was found to have a stamp indicating entry to Thailand at Sadao on the Malaysian border in 2017. 

 

The stamp was a fake. The case came to light thanks to checking of biometric data at the airport that indicated he had no official entry stamp registered in the system.

 

Case B was a 32 year old man from the Czech Republic who was on his way to Italy. He was found to be wanted on a warrant issued by the Chana Songkram police for theft during the hours of darkness. 

 

The Chana Songkram police told immigration he had yet to be prosecuted for this offence. He was handed over to them. 

 

Thaivisa notes that this police station is in the area of Khao San Road. 

 

Case C happened at Phuket airport where a 34 year old Nigerian man arrived from Doha, Qatar. He was found to be wanted in Pattaya for possession of meth amphetamines and for being on overstay.

 

Biometrics helped in all three cases said Naew Na, a news organisation that has become a mouthpiece for immigration activities in the kingdom in recent months, notes Thaivisa.

Nothing wrong with getting rid of the garbage. It's just that they need to learn to differentiate between the garbage and those who are a benefit/plus to Thailand by being here and not just tarnishing all with the same brush assuming that all foreigners are criminals ... not so.

They make it sound as if it’s some miracle . It’s an existing technology which has been in use for years but took Thailand years to realise it😉

Is the penalty for "theft during the hours of darkness" any different than for "theft during the hours of daylight"??

 

If there is no difference, then can someone please tell the Thai translator to drop the portion of the statement "during the hours of darkness."

Considering that there are 30 million of foreigners visiting Thailand , the crime rate is minimalistic by foreigners

What has biometrics got to do with realising the stamp was fake, when it goes on to say he had no official entry stamp in the system?

Is everyone jumping on the biometrics bandwagon?

Don't know about that. Last night, along with my wife and three other family members, we ate lots of food, had lots to drink, heard live music, and all for about 2400 baht. Talk about a steal!

The news article is sensationalizing recent busts at the airport. It is meant to promote Thailand's ability to combat crime. Does it really matter if it was a biometric issue that led to the arrests, or whether a soi dog with its uncanny sense of smell rooted out the evil-doers, or just good old fashioned police work?

 

If I were a two-bit criminal, I would not be trespassing into Thailand. That's the message I got.

You need to upgrade and become a sixty-four-bit criminal then.

He was quoting from the charge sheet. It was not 'daylight robbery'.

If it were daylight robbery, would the thief only be assessed a 200 Baht fine instead of a 500 Baht fine, and a confession??

and other countries that have had it for use for years still screw it up as evidenced by the convicted pedophile that was allowed to travel over here after a name change..

There's a big difference, far heavier sentence.

Petty crime. Would not even make the local news in a town of 100k in US.

 

But when a foreigner is involved, it always makes headlines here, even if someone stole a KitKat in 7/11.

Case A fake stamp

Case B  theft in the dark 🙂

Case C drugs and overstay.

 

Millions of tourists come to Thailand. And their expensive biometrics system responsible for long lines at the airport found 1 criminal.  I find Thai news, and especially if it is about Thai police, often so childish, so naive, so dumb... 

 

And there they stand together proudly looking at the photo. I find it really ridiculous.

 

Am I the only one who sees it that way?

Case A - possibly highlighted due to the new system

Case B - possibly caught due to finger printing on way out flagged him

Case C - possibly caught due to finger prints on way in flagging him

 

Just because the quality of "journalism" is shit doesn't mean the story is 100% crap too.
