Thai immigration police said yesterday they had intercepted an Iranian national travelling on a stolen Danish passport.

Hassan Gholami, 27, was apprehended after flying from Tehran to Phuket and then to Bangkok where he was due to transfer to BA 10 to London where he hoped to work.

He was using a Danish passport in the name of Mr Kris Stecher. 

Gholami admitted buying the passport in an East Asian country for $5,000 US (160,000 baht).

Well done immigration, one more bad guy stopped on the way to the Uk. :thumbsup:

Anyone traveling on a false or stolen passport , should be jailed 10 years straightaway

on terrorism charges.

Unless He/She has a very very good reason for this.

Yeah, a Dane flying from Phuket (or Bangkok) would arose much less suspicion than an Iranian flying from Dubai or Istanbul.

Just like those that flock to join ISIS or other similar groups. You don't book a ticket from (wherever) to Raqqa and tell people you are just going sightseeing. You book your flight to some other place, change planes (even airlines), travel to a second or even third destination, then make your way to (wherever it is you are really trying to get to).

 

Just like that Taliban wannabee in Canada. The one who used to be married to Omar Khadr's sister. He wanted to join the Taliban and knew he wouldn't be let out of the country if anyone suspected his real intentions so he set up a "backpacking trip" in Southern Russia and the "stans" (a collection of former Soviet republics just north of Afghanistan). He took his (heavily) pregnant wife with him to throw off suspicion as well. After all, no one would take their pregnant wife into a war zone to join a terrorist organization, would they ?

Then, while they were "backpacking" in Uzbekistan (or was it Tajikistan ?) Boyle suddenly detours and takes his wife into Afghanistan (after allegedly meeting a "contact" who helped them get to Kabul). They had been keeping in contact with their families on social media up until that sudden, unexplained detour.

 

Then, while in Kabul, Boyle sends a email claiming they were in a "very dangerous part of the country", apparently unaware that they'd be able to tell in a heartbeat that he was still in Kabul when he sent the email. He was setting things up to make it look like he was somewhere else so that when they "disappeared" it would be assumed they'd been captured by the Taliban. I guess he didn't think they'd be able to figure out that he also made a cash withdrawal from an ATM in Kabul the day they actually did travel to a Taliban controlled area where they were "kidnapped".

His plan worked (obviously).
By pretending to have been kidnapped, he was able to stay with his terrorist buddies as long as he wanted to, until circumstances (a daughter's illness I think) suddenly demanded that he return to the country of the great (and free) healthcare. They arranged to be "seen" and then their terrorist buddies set up a handover with their Pakistani handlers and suddenly he's a "rescued hostage" and getting flown home (for free of course) and front of the line for hospital admittance (for his daughter and then his wife) despite them technically not having any medical coverage.

If he hadn't taken his pregnant wife with him, probably no one would have believed his story at all.


He even managed to finagle a personal meeting with the (terrorist loving) Prime Minister. (That was before he was arrested and charged with over a dozen offences for things he apparently did after getting back to Canada.)


Note: Boyle's ex-wife, Zaynab, had been put on a "Passport Control List" many years ago (before 2001 I think it was). She was put on the list (as was her mother) due to the number of passports they claimed they'd "lost" in a short period of time. Kind of makes you wonder where all those "lost passports" ended up. Zaynab was the one who had publicly claimed that the 5 years she'd spent living with the Taliban were the "best years of her life". That was before she married her 3rd husband (Boyle).

Guessing the Thai Immigration Officer in Phuket that let him in is still working.

The poor guy really got scammed.

 

You’d think if you dropped $5,000 on a black market passport it would at least be good enough to get you in and out of Thailand.

 

Guess you can’t trust anyone anymore.

How disappointing for all concerned,.  He would have been welcomed with open arms, particularly if he flushed his new passport down the plane toilet and cried "Refugee."    All he had to do was get onto that BA10 flight.  Am I being cynical? Again? As usual?

I don't know why they caught him. He looks Danish to me.

Don't you mean Swedish?  Me being cynical and attempting black humour (also - again.)
