French bank robber and drug kingpin back in custody after Big Joke gets on the case

A wanted French criminal has been arrested in Bo Phut, Koh Samui after reentering Thailand despite being black listed. 

 

Immigration chief Surachate Hakpan responding to representations from the French authorities ordered his men on the holiday island to raid a property in Bo Phut where Andre Espiasse Cabau was staying. 

 

Cabau originally entered Thailand back in 2013 on a fake passport. He was arrested and blacklisted in 2015 after the French wanted him for bank robbery and high level involvement in the drug trade. 

 

He was deported but found his way back to Thailand last September. He had changed his name and passport and sneaked in through Sadao on the Malaysian border, reported Thai Rath.

 

Surachate was able to ascertain that the man living in Bo Phut was in fact Cabau before ordering his capture on Tuesday. 

 

He will now be deported again.

Did he "sneak in" or did one of BJ's border control officers have his hand out for a donation?  The corruption continues without investigation.

When you change name and passport there is no need for donations to immigration officers.

 

Good try to discredit BJ, but another fail. Better luck with your next attempt

I see a valid question here, not an attempt to discredit BJ (who deserves much credit).

He had a passport with a different name, what part don't you understand?

Big Joke sounds like the best thing since the discovery of rice. Too bad Thailand doesn't have a thousand more like him instead of traffic cops on the take.

Salute to Big Joke.

So for bank robbery and high level involvement in the drug trade, he was detained in France for less than a couple years, between his deportation and illegal return to Thailand lately?

Are you sure the immigration officer didn't catch that?  Maybe his photo didn't match.  What don't you understand about the corruption of border immigration agents who let in thousands of trafficked Uighurs without passports at the Cambodian border for payment of THB 10,000?

How do you know the immigration officer didn't catch that?  There are lots of issues with fake passports that get caught, and then overlooked, when money is exchanged.

Because there is no fake passport in this case.

 

The French guy got an official name change and new passport accordingly.

 

By the way, at the time he entered Thailand BJ wasn't head of immigration yet.

Really? Is it that simple? So even Osama bin Laden can change his name and enter Thailand as being another person?

Really, are you that simple?

 

Several nationalities can change their names officially.
