Thailand leading the way in combating international crime - 28 on "Red Notice" banged up in a month

Thailand's police top brass turned out in force for the press yesterday to celebrate having made 28 arrests of international criminals since December alone.

 

The criminals - and there was not an African among them - were all on Interpol's Red Notice list.

 

In front of a huge banner featuring immigration chief Lt Gen Surachate Hakparn an adviser to immigration spoke of the police success. 

 

Chief of immigration Big Joke deferred to General Torsak Sa-atphak in his role as adviser to the Immigration Bureau on this occasion.

 

Gen Torsak praised the work of the Thais and the help from Interpol and various embassies in particular. 

 

He said that since just December 28 criminals from the following countries had been nabbed: China, South Korea, the UK, Italy, Germany, the Czech Republic, Turkey, New Zealand, the US and Russia. 

 

Crimes involved included fraud, murder, drugs related offences, customs matters, and crime involving children on the internet.

Shame they are not as efficient in pursuing those who have run away from Thailand through Interpol. Last I recall reading Mr. Red Bull Bosses paperwork was still incomplete.

This could be a start. At least, let's be thankful for this!

Some crims on a red notice seam to have been moved to the little known slightly pink one dependant on the sliding scale of contribution 🤔

I wonder if that includes the guy who is on a permanent resident/refugee visa from Australia ... the football guy.

And how's that for subtlety . . . see how Big Joke Lt General (was a soldier but is now a cop) Surachate manages to maintain his 100% foto-op rercord . . . such a modest sort of guy, even though he probably does envy General (was a soldier but is now a cop, too!) Torsak and his more exciting work, chasing real criminals . . . excluding the Red Bull Kid, of course, who has 'special licence' from him upstairs.

 

You gotta hand it to these guys . . . their presentation skills are shit detritus-hot, if nothing else is.

Hmm.

This is from a Thai news agency - having to mention "there was not an African among them".

It's because they knew the article would be posted on this forum, and knowing the cynic reputation of it, they wanted to be one step ahead.

Always interesting to see the prominent language used on their sign board.  It shows which audience they are trying to impress.

All this report tells me is Thailand has a high concentration of international criminals that must find the place as a easy touch to hide out and or commit more crime.where I live you could spend decades without a visa and stay off the radar if you kept your nose clean.
