The Immigration Police has arrested 9 Chinese hiding in Thailand connected to a fraud case in China. Police Lieutenant General Sompong Chingduang, Police Major General Nottapol Sawangkij, Police Major General Sarayut Saknuankohpai, and other connected police officers reported the arrest on the 16th of this month (August 2019).
The Chinese arrested are connected to a case of fraud against the Chinese government causing damages of over 1,000 Million Chinese Yuan or about 5,000 Million THB. They flew into Thailand specifically to hide in an attempt to flee from their history in China. Thailand is a popular escape for foreign criminals, thankfully in the last few years, the Thai Immigration Police have worked together with the Investigations team in successful searches leading to arrests of foreign criminals. The Thai officials have tried their best when contacted with information from the authorities in other nations.
Pol.Lt.Gen Sompong stated that the immigration Police was contacted by Chinese officials with information on the 9 suspects. Out of the 9, 5 were male and 4 were female. They were involved in a case affecting the Chinese economy by forging contracts. After receiving the information, the Thai investigation police carried out the process to search for the 9 Chinese individuals running away from their past in Thailand.
Furthermore, they have also opened an online selling business that they used to cheat other victims in China. The suspects worked together in creating a fake business that used the online transactions systems to their advantage in cheating customers. Their actions affected the financial security of the Bank of China coming to damage of over 5,000 Million THB.
The 9 suspects will be prosecuted including having their Visas revoked before being deported back to China. All 9 suspects will be blacklisted to prevent them from coming to hide in Thailand again.
