BANGKOK: -- The head of Thai immigration announced the arrest of five foreign nationals this week in what he called a nationwide pre-Songkran crackdown to help boost the security of Thais and foreign tourists.

 

In Phuket a Russian called Matvey Shuvalov, 45, is now in custody. He has apparently been hiding out in Thailand for twenty years and has a Thai wife and four children here. He was wanted on an Interpol warrant for fraud and had had his Russian passport rescinded before, reported Sanook.

 

Immigration chief Nathathorn Phrosunthorn said that Shuvalov was a prominent figure in the Phuket underworld.

 

Also arrested were Norwegian Indal Stig-asbjoern and American Aarl Bagley. Both were wanted for sex offences believed committed in their home countries.

 

Yakov Elfasi, was also arrested for forgery and sex offences committed in his native Israel.

 

All suspects have had their right to stay in Thailand terminated and are now in custody.

 

Sanook.com also reported that three Taiwanese nationals were also under arrest for running a call center. No details of this case were given yesterday.

A quick internet search on American Aarl Bagley returned an article from Manila from 2013 where he was arrested there and deported.  And then some arrests in Las Vegas, Nevada USA in 2014.  If all this is the same guy, kind of amazing the guy somehow got out of the USA and into Thailand.

EARL Bagley was also operating out of Hong Kong.

He's a registered sex offender, who also runs some scammy sounding 'maid' agency setup, and claims to do charity work with kids.

The guy is in a wheelchair.   Sure gets around better than most of us.

Well the Russian had a good run 20 years and never had to show a passport which had been cancelled? Amazing feat. Puts Houdini to shame. Of course the BIB were glad handing each other all over the place. Why I fail to fathom as this guy eluded them for 20 years. Is he in he Guinness book of records.

Well, he's had twenty years to become prominent.

Pre Songkran Security crackdown? How do three sex offenders and a "prominent figure in the Phuket underworld", affect security?

And that only makes four foreigners, not five as the headline says.

One, two, three, five.. Thais and counting.... 

I thought that I heard several years ago that there was no mafia in Phuket. 

Underworld ?? In Phuket ???

To help make up for some of his dirty deeds after he dies he should leave his "brain" to science to figure out how guys like this are hard wired vs an ordinary honest hard working Joe. There has to be a tell tale sign there somewhere.
