SAMUT PRAKAN: -- Customs Department at Suvarnabhumi Airport arrested two Iranian nationals for having a combined one kilogramme of crystal methamphetamine in their stomachs.

The customs department’s deputy director general Rakop Srisupa-at told a news conference that Mr Ali Dastbarsar, 23, and Mr Ehsan Babak, 24, acted suspiciously and matched descriptions provided by a secret agent.

An x-ray scan revealed suspicious objects in their stomachs, which were later found to be the illegal drug crystal methamphetamine totalling one kilogramme, with a street value of around Bt3.5 million.

According to an investigation, Mr Babak said that he was convinced by a drug gang to smuggle the drug into Thailand by swallowing the narcotics to avoid arrest. He was to be paid Bt60,000 to 90,000 if the delivery was completed.

The pair were initially charged with possession of illegal drugs and smuggling it into the Kingdom. (MCOT online news)

Are Iranians subject to an x ray scan on arrival in BKK ? If so, good !

I agree but what concerns me is that Thailand is virtually the only country in the region where customs do NOT carry out regular screening of passenger's luggage (having said that of course these smugglers had their drugs in their stomachs). Meanwhile, Vietnam, Myanmar and other neighboring countries regularly screen arriving passengers luggage; Thailand is lax, criminals know this and exploit this.

Probably eight or so. Fairly common to sacrifice one or two as it satisfies a number of otherwise thorny issues. Obviously these guys wouldn't have been caught without a tip from inside the transport arm of the operation. People are not normally exposed to X-rays outside of a hospital or dedicated facility.

BKK has an airport hospital facility. They just don't take care of tourist upset tummies.

OK, so what's with the pixilated faces of our wonderful Iranian visitors? usually when westerners or Africans are detained we are treated to their full photos and even their passports. Is this a new trend?

Off with their heads

Damn right! Anyone who has worked the ME will be all too aware of their penalties for serious crime. Well done customs - excellent result and a super deterrent to other scum bags

Agreed, but it would make for a better investigation if they had these two lads tailed after they get through customs and see where they dump the crystal meth. Perhaps a chance to get to the end buyer. But that would require good detective work.
