Thai immigration catch "finger cutting" gang of international extortionists

Four members of an international gang of extortionists have been arrested at a hotel in Pratunam, Bangkok.

 

The men are believed to be two Cambodians and two Indonesians and were involved with others already in custody in the abduction and ransom of an Indonesian national in Cambodia. 

 

The victim's finger was cut off and relatives in Indonesia were sent a video demanding 300,000 baht.

 

Thai immigration followed the trail of the men from Sa Kaew to Bangkok as they tried to give officers the slip by changing hired van twice. 

 

Biometrics was also mentioned in the Naew Na report as having played a part in the arrest.

Perhaps they were bleeding too (on the trail) and that is how they got fingered.

I see they've got another poster on display for the hard-of-learning.

No kidding.  Where do they keep these things after?

 

Ever hear of Microsoft Power Point?

Sir you had 8 fingers and two thumbs when you entered the kingdom. You seem to be a little short now. Please explain.
