A major investigation is underway into a nominee racket. 

 

Four Chinese companies are suspected of setting up around 40 companies running businesses that are reserved for Thais. 

 

They have been aided and abetted my many Thai nationals who acted as nominees, said the Department of Special Investigations yesterday.

 

Assets worth 3.6 billion baht have been seized so far. 

 

The Chinese were trading in rice, doing real estate dealings, running construction companies and accommodation businesses. 

 

The case centers on 255 suspects who assumed Thai nationality in a district of Chiang Rai in Thailand's far north.

 

One is a Chinese national known as A-Pao Sae-sin who forged an application for Thai ID, reported Daily News.

Accommodation would be the illegal hotel businesses run in the condos. Looks like the proxy tour companies weren't nabbed yet?

Fraud on an industrial scale.

 

Those with nominee companies used to own land and property must be sitting uncomfortably reading this.

Saber rattling every few years...houses owned through companies no problem. Read stories like this 20 years ago, sorry to pee on your parade.

It wasn't done to their close friends.

 

it was done with the full cooperataion and approval of their close friends.

 

Their close friends in Thailand who have Thai names, but who have deeper, ancestral, cultural......."allegiances".

I'd like to know how 250 Chinese got Thai permanent residency rights. My understanding is that only 100/nationality can receive it each year.

With phony Thai  I. D's they don't need it.
