When enough evidence was collected officials went to inspect the room.
Prima 49 years old from Belgium did not have information showing him entering the Kingdom. When officials checked the biometrics system, Prima was arrested for forgery in 1999 (20 years ago). As a result, his name was in the blacklist meaning that he could not enter the country. Prima stated that after he was deported back to Belgium he attempted to fly into Suvarnabhumi Airport in 2014 but was denied entrance by Immigration officials at the airport. Instead of returning to Belgium, Prima flew to Myanmar then to Cambodia. He then entered the Kingdom through natural passageways.
