KOH SAMUI: -- Police on Koh Samui have announced the arrest of a 42 year old Czech Republic national wanted for a 53 million baht fraud in Europe.

 

Radek Juricek was arrested Friday at a ferry terminal on the southern Thai island.

 

He had told immigration in extending a visa that he was a teacher.

 

The arrest was a joint operation by immigration police, local cops and Interpol after Juricek appeared on a red notice as a wanted person.

 

He is alleged to have committed a 1.5 million Euro property fraud in the Czech Republic. He is now in the custody of Interpol having had his rights to stay in the kingdom rescinded and been blacklisted as a danger to society.

 

Surat Thai immigration representative Wanchana Buankhun said that Juricek originally entered Thailand via Sadao, Songkhla, in February 2014. He had then extended his stay continually.

 

His latest extension was in Sri Racha where the reason given for his request to stay in Thailand was being a "teacher, professor or educational specialist".

he's a "government official" as well.  

that's what they used to tell us, I imagine still do, as soon as you even apply for an English teaching job.... at a public school.. 'you will be considered to be a Government Official'.

what does that mean????
 

what it only means... that I could ever tell.... is "government to government" immigration service.. which generally was less sweat than regular immigration service based on my 15 years experience at 3 different offices.... i.e. not even having to appear in person at labor until your work permit is completely approved and ready.... along with free stays at resorts with golf courses and tennis.... which isn't bad at all but... you otherwise have to be a bit Thai to fully get what else they mean by this.. I guess.... and being endlessly saluted by students.

being a "teacher, professor or educational specialist" is or could be enough justification for a request to stay?  wouldn't one need a work permit?  What Visa was he trying to extend?
