PHUKET: Acting Deputy Chief of the Thai Tourist Police Maj Gen Surachet Hakpan landed in Phuket yesterday (Oct 11) to personally lead a press conference announcing arrests made in raids on tourism businesses on the island – but declined to name which businesses were raided or name any of the suspects arrested and charged.

 

Also present at the press conference, held at the Phuket Tourist Police headquarters in Phuket Town at 3pm, was Phuket Provincial Police Commander Maj Gen Teerapol Thipjaroen and other high-ranking officers.

 

The brief details revealed that four suspects – identified only as a Cameroonian, an Indian, an Algerian and a Nigerian – were arrested for illegally staying in the country after their permit to stay had expired, and four suspects were arrested for entering the country illegally.
