Two African men and a Thai teenager have been arrested for forgery and using forged state documents to help them stay in Thailand.

 

Maj-General Surachate Hakpal, said on Friday that police are now summoning the alleged Thai agent to give testimony on the case.

 

The visas of Fabrice Mbimmba Makiadi, 27, from the Congo and Nicolas Yao Kouadio, 29, from the Ivory Coast, were revoked following their arrest after forged documents were found that were to be used in applying for a visa to stay in Thailand. 

 

The suspects reportedly told police that a female Thai agent had offered foreigners - especially footballers and language teachers - a service to get them documents to apply to legally stay in Thailand for Bt20,000 per head.

Two Africans who claimed they were footballers seeking visa extensions in Hua Hin were found to have presented fake documents from the Thai FA.
 
They were both arrested and had their visas revoked and will now be deported. A Thai agent was also arrested. 
 
In October Mbimba Makiadi Fabrice, 27, from Congo and Yao Kouadio Nicolas, 29, from Ivory Coast had applied at Hua Hin immigration for extensions of stay.
 
But alert immigration officers found irregularities in the stamps on their application documents. 
 
Immigration chief Maj-Gen Surachate "Big Joke" Hakparn ordered their immediate arrest. 
 
An 18 year old Thai agent named only as "Chai"  who helped them was also arrested, according to the Immigration Bureau Facebook page.

Given the reputation of the Thai FA, it should have only cost a little to get genuine documents. The "agent" lacks contacts and the intellectual wherewithal to cultivate them.

Does no-one else see the irony of the immigration dept chasing after people who forge documents so arrivals can get visas when for years its been the immigration dept who have accepted money from outside agencies to help arrivals (with the same problem) get their visa with no documents at all.

Its equally as  ironic that if the authorities ignore corruption folks whinge about it, when they take steps to stop it, folks whinge about it.

 

Ive been coming here for 25 years about. The times they are a changing

No way is an 18 year old the main man at the top of the tree.

Maybe it was a Bonsai tree.

I'd love to be the one who has the contract to produce these giant posters featuring glamour boy pin-up Big Joke. I suspect the reason for his high profile exposure will become obvious prior to the election.

I met an African man at Hua Hin immigration several months ago.  He ran a football training school and seemed like a great guy.  I hope he wasn't faking anything and caught up in this.

Maybe its an exercise and excuse to up the fee structure ?

Maybe we could make a movie.

"Coming to Thailand"

Chinese producers, African stars and the fat bearded taikwondoh guy could direct.

Would you prefer posters of the two fugitives?

why is there pics of big joke everywhere ? a guy alone can't solve that much cases. he always takes credit from any new investigations. He is now boss of immigration but will take credit for anything unrelated if it does appear in the news.
