Immigration chief Pol Lt-Gen Phakphoom Satjaphan and his subordinates yesterday gave details of five cases involving the arrest of foreign nationals in Thailand, reported Thai Rath.

 

In the first they arrested a British man named only as Ritesh who was wanted by the UK's National Crime Agency in a drugs' case. 

 

He was hiding in a luxury pool villa in Phuket and came to the attention of the Thai authorities after they were told he had used someone else's details in the UK to get a new passport. 

 

In the second case immigration went to a house in Soi Aphasiri in the Bangkok suburb of Huay Khwang where they arrested a Taiwanese man called Jang.

 

This followed a tip that someone matching the suspect's description was residing at the address.

 

Jang was named in a 2019 Taipei warrant for Bitcoin fraud amounting to 234 million Thai baht. 

 

He was detained on overstay.

The third case featured the arrest of 109 illegal immigrants from Myanmar, 19 Thai facilitators and the seizure of 13 vehicles and 28 phones in Hat Yai.

 

This case is connected to the murder of Hamadol Binsan, 40, a provincial electricity employee in Hat Yai.

 

The Myanmar people had paid between 50-60,000 baht to enter Thailand illegally then travel through the south to Malaysia.

 

In total 33 people are involved in the ring in a business worth 14 million baht.

 

The fourth case involved a man called Mohan, 58, from India who changed his personal details so he could get a new passport and circumvent a blacklist order.

 

He missed his Thai wife. He was picked up in Klaeng, Rayong.

 

The last case involved the arrest of two Iranian nationals who were arrested at Tha Mai market in Chanthaburi where they had been engaging in exchange fraud.

That's about 15000 USD a head. 😆😆😆.

 

While the country has been stolen from the Thai people.

The under statement of the year, there are many fugitives and run aways hiding in this country but the police will be hesitant to admit it...

That is because if the BIB started arresting criminals here they would decimate their own ranks.
