When biometrics won't work! Viet pickpockets slipped in over "natural border"

Unusually for an immigration press conference yesterday, the 2 billion baht biometrics system to keep the blacklisted out of the country was not mentioned. 

 

There was a good reason. 

 

The two Vietnamese pickpockets presented to the press had slipped into Thailand across a natural border and never been stamped into  the kingdom at all. 

 

Immigration chief Lt-Gen Sompong "Big Oud" Chingduang presented the press conference amid a large collection of helpers and vinyl boards.

The press was told that a Japanese man with his family in Chiang Mai for Loy Krathong last week had reported having his wallet lifted. 

 

Muang police and immigration studied CCTV and their investigations led to the arrest at a hotel of Do Dinh, 32 and Ha Van, 39. 

 

They were found in possession of twelve items of evidence. 

 

Both had stolen in Thailand before and been blacklisted. But they sneaked back in without going through any checks. 

 

They were charged with illegal entry and theft and receiving stolen goods and are in the custody of the Muang Chiang Mai police.

Why would you want to stick rather naff plastic sandals - real or fake - on a border wall?
