PHUKET:-- A Russian man was arrested while waiting to board a flight at Phuket International Airport yesterday (Nov 29) following a request from the US Government.

 

The man arrested was 33-year-old Anton Bogdanov, Phuket Airport Immigration Chief Col Supachok Yongstar confirmed to The Phuket News.

 

“I had received a notice from the Phuket Tourist Police to arrest Mr Bogdanov. He was in Phuket on holiday. He has been taken into custody and is now undergoing ‘legal processing’ (sic),” Col Supachok said.

That name does not match any of the twelve Russian GRU agents whom Mueller indicted back July.

Perhaps he's using an alias?

 

Can't see him leaving Thailand alive if he's anyone important - he died from gravity overdose as they say in Russia.

Why would Muller have anything to do with this. A suspected criminal is on a wanted list and gets arrested.

Maybe he is included in a sealed indictment, used sometimes to not give the suspect advanced warning.

The article says he was arrested near the departure gate awaiting his flight home to Russia. The Russian Embassy says he was arrested on arrival in Phuket for vacation. Hmmmm...

I didn't say that he did.

 

But it is quite rare for Thailand to arrest a Russian on U.S. orders. The last one I remember was Viktor Bout, and that was a huge deal.

 

I've got to believe that this person is more than a "suspected criminal...on a wanted list"?

It was the shorts for sure!

No doubt the shorts are a crime. I'm just not sure that they are an extraditable crime. :tongue:

Very interesting!   To young for any crime but a cyber one imho.    So maybe all the cyber criminals will find they can't enjoy the spoils in Thailand.   How did they find him.  Why on exit not entry?

Because Mueller has indicted several Russians that can only ever be arrested if they travel to a country willing to arrest them. So it's possible it may be linked, but as another said, his name isn't on the public list.

How do you place someone under arrest without a reason?

 

Russian or not, he has a right to know why he has been arrested.
