Immigration police have arrested a Russian businesswoman who has been in hiding for three years since a warrant on charges that include using Thai nominee to run a real estate firm in Pattaya.

 

Pol Lt Gen Sompong Chingduang, acting commissioner of the Immigration Bureau, said Natalia Nikiforova, was arrested in Tambon Na Klua of Chon Buri’s Bang Lamung district under a warrant issued by the Pattaya Court on June 29, 2016.

 

She was arrested at the Nesta Asia Group on charges of being an alien carrying out business prohibited to foreigners.

 

Sompong said Nikiforova used a Thai nominee as a front for her real estate business and did not pay tax. She instead remitted her income back to her motherland, thus affecting the Thai economy.

 

Sompong said Nikiforova has left the country and reentered with a new name and a new passport but the bureau’s bio-metric iris-scanning system identified her as the wanted person on the arrest warrant.

They must have dug out, and matched, the old iris scan from 3 years ago, when they were not doing them.

If she wore an eye patch she could've called 50/50 on that ..

Another example, of being near sighted.  I won't say names... but if you're really going to fish with a net, cast a wide net otherwise...the old proverb is at work, kill the chicken to scare the monkeys.  Oh... it never works.

That's cool; the b-ach was caught. This bio-metric system helps weed out the unscrupulous persons that should otherwise spend time in jail in their home countries. Obviously spending jail time in a western country is not desirable... and to think that a Thai jail is better ... well, that is insane.

" She instead remitted her income back to her motherland, thus affecting the Thai economy."

 

Blimey, what a dastardly and heinous crime, if she hadn't sent all her filthy lucre back to Moscow the Thai Baht could be at 20/USD or 25/GBP by now. She's obviously totally sabotaged the government and Bank of Thailand's carefully-laid plans to clean up society by getting rid of all the sweating foreigners spending more than two weeks a year in the country.

Was there any penalty for the Thai nominee?  I speak with some bitterness having fallen for the racist scam of buying a house through Thai nominees.  The unscrupulous Audit company promoted my unscrupulous ex-wife without my knowledge & stole a goodly chunk of my farang children's inheritance.

What are they arresting her for? Using a Nominee? That has got to be over 60% of foreigners doing business(buying properties) here. Got one more final property left to be sold. bought it with a Thai Nominee, as OPENLY advertised by the Thai company who sold it to me. I guess I'd really need to drop the price even further, so I can get the hell outta here! Folks running the show here have really lost their minds!
