An Israeli who murdered his wife in Bangkok in 2013 was caught back in the country again after he was deported.

 

In 2004 Eli Maimon Cohen was convicted of murdering his wife, cutting her up and putting her remains in a suitcase. He then dumped her in the Phadung Krung Kasem canal in the capital..

 

He was given a life sentence but after remission was let out in May 2013 and deported and permanently blacklisted. 

 

However, he found his way back into Thailand on a new passport under the name of Yahel Eli Maimon Cohen. He is now aged 49. 

 

Acting immigration chief Lt-Gen Sompong Chingduang told a press conference that Cohen was arrested last week at the Rong Kleua market in Sa Kaew. 

 

He had come back to Thailand on a tourist visa and was trying to get work with a foreign company, reported INN. 

 

He will now be deported once again after he was found to be in Thailand illegally.

Doesn't say how he was caught. Murderers remain 'on licence' for the remainder of their lives in UK. Hopefully it was similar monitoring by Thai police that resulted in his arrest?

He spent 9 years in jail, he must have thought that 2019's Thailand was the same as 2004 and that they had no way to make the connection.

Well... I also wonder what system is working so well in this country.
