Former honorary consul held for selling counterfeit visa stamps to Thailand

POLICE HAVE arrested a former honorary consul for allegedly producing counterfeit entry visa stamps and immigration documents and selling them to Russians wishing to come to Thailand.
 

Pol Maj-General Surachet Hakpan, acting immigration department chief, said the arrest of Kuliushin Vitalii in Phuket province was in response to a court-ordered arrest warrant against him.

 

“Police sought charges against him for falsifying official documents and fraud, as well as for violating the Computer Act and possibly harming the national security,” he said.

 

Thailand often appoints local people as honorary consuls in different countries to help facilitate immigration work.

 

Vitalii, 60, had held the position in Vladivostok, Russia but his appointment was revoked by a Cabinet resolution in 2006.

 

Responding to a request from the Consular Affairs Department of the Foreign Ministry, police found that Vitalii ran a website where he advertised his services, claiming that he was still authorised to do immigration processes, such as stamping visas and certifying documents.

 

He allegedly collected about 5,400 rubles (Bt2,700) in fees from each customer.

 

Surachet told reporters that the Russian’s alleged acts violated multiple laws, including the Computer Act. “The suspect had committed more than 100 offences before coming to Thailand and lying low,” he said.

RE - Though his right to use the official consular stamp was revoked, Kulyushin did not surrender it despite a warning that year to do so.

 

There is no exaggeration in claiming that he is stamped for life...:whistling:

Russians may be especially egregious in this regard, but they are hardly the only nationals who feel that they are a law unto themselves  or who believe themselves to be innately privileged wherever they go.

Yes, Thailand and the Thais lack of any regular adherence to their own laws tempts all of us, from all nationalities to follow suit.
