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 He is now in the custody of Interpol having had his rights to stay in the kingdom rescinded and been blacklisted as a danger to society.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".
