Immigration has reported that 30 sex offenders have been arrested at five Thai airports since the start of 2018.

 

They represent about 20% of all serious criminals stopped at the airports.

 

Pol Col Cherngron Rimphadee, deputy immigration commissioner, said that 156 foreign nationals that represented a serious threat to Thailand's security had been arrested.

 

The figures referred to Suvarnabhumi, Don Muang, Chiang Mai, Hat Yai and Phuket airports from January to June.

 

The 30 sex offenders were part of a larger group of 3,461 people who came under suspicion for exploiting Thailand as a "Sex Country" Daily News reported.

 

Twelve of the 156 were found to have fake passports, fake pictures in their passports or fake visas and stamps.

 

Pol Col Cherngron hailed the force's Advance Passenger Processing System or APPS for the successes.

 

Among them were Mr Oh Janghyn a Korean wanted for human trafficking and Dolen Zuarez an Israeli wanted for murder. Both were caught in January.

 

Total foreign arrivals at the airports so far this year has been 14,752,560 people. Some 8.7 million arrived at Suvarabhumi and 2.7 million at Don Muang.

 

This represented an 18% rise at those two airports compared to the previous year.

3,461? 

 

They’re missing a few zeros there.

Like I mentioned before to the cry babies who complain how long it takes them to get thru immigration.

The IO is actually conducting an investigation when people come into the country.

Good for them for doing their job!

If so, then well done to them.

 

However, my question would be how does the IO office know if someone has a criminal record from outside of Thailand or is wanted in another country. Unless a country has informed Thailand that they may be travelling there and could be a danger, surely their computer at the airport can't access this information. 

 

If I am wrong then please correct me.

What the article neglected to say that almost half of the men coming to Thailand are looking forward to and expecting some kind of 'good times' with the local boys and ladies  and if hypothetically there will be N. Korea style of no nightlife and no entertainment, Thailand will lose 50% of it's tourist...

It is called Interpol.

A worlwide database to track criminals across international borders.

But I assumed that would only work if the person is wanted on Interpol. Like the Red Bull man ?
