Immigration Crackdown in Northern Thailand

Denunciations of Illegal Aliens are obviously encouraged by Thai Immigration Police

More than 2000 foreigners and Thais have been arrested as part of a two week crackdown by Immigration Police in Isaan. Pol Maj Gen Karndee - head of Immigration Division 4 in northeast Thailand - told reporters that his officers had arrested a total of 2274 people during the crackdown which took place between June 01-14.2019

Of those arrested 621 were found to have entered Thailand illegally, while 31 were on overstay. 73 were arrested for working illegally, 16 had outstanding warrants and 1245 for other illegal activity while, 287 had been refused entry by immigration officials. The arrests included 15 citizen from Cameroon who were charged with chopping down protected trees in Korat, one Indian man who stayed in Thailand on a fake passport and four Vietnamese women who were working in a Thai massage shop.

Pol Maj Gen Natthawat also said that his men are monitoring criminal gangs from Cameroon and Colombia who are committing crime in Thailand. He said some of the Cameroon gang members are often armed, while the Colombian gangs are known to commit crimes such as burglary and bag snatches.

Separately a Colombian man, who stole 5 Million THB of goods in Samut Prakan in May was arrested at Suvarnabhumi airport earlier this week. Also this week, head of the Thai Immigration Bureau - Lt-Gen Sompong Chingduang - urged anyone who knows of a foreigner involved in illegally activity in Thailand to report the matter by telephone to the Immigration hotline on 1178.

Immigrant Hunting Foreigners Continuing.....

It was just recently reported that the Brownish Military Dictatorship in Thailand and its Immigration Chief was taking no nonsense from law breaking foreigners damaging the image of Thailand and adversely affecting tourism. The media - a mouthpiece for the activities of immigration in recent months - were present at immigration HQ in Suan Phlu,Bangkok as Lt-Gen Sompong Chingduang announced his get tough message. Thus, they did not say so, but this appeared to be a PR event.

They quoted Sompong as saying that today was just the start - his policy of ridding Thailand of thieves, pickpockets, those who have entered illegally, over stayers, various other criminals and those on international warrants would continue on and on.

To show that he means what he says 15 people who had overstayed their welcome in Thailand were paraded for the cameras - they comprised 8 Somalis, three Syrians and 4 Chinese. No details were given by Naew Na about when and where they were picked up.

Naew Na's story said all this was under the direct orders of PM Prayut Chan-ocha, DPM Suwit Wongsuwan, RTP chief Chakthip Chaijinda and his deputy. Big Oud said he would be going after both Thais and foreigners breaking the law.

The chief's words that this was just the start seemed a little at odds with previous reports that 45,000 people had already been caught on overstay and hundreds of illegals on warrants arrested, notes Thaivisa.

The public were urged to go to Room 507 at Suan Phlu to report wrongdoing or call 1178.

PS: Can you spot the real criminals in the picture below ! Besides that, dangerous criminals are walking in Bangkoks corridors of power too
