Immigration police have arrested a Russian businesswoman who has been in hiding for three years since a warrant on charges that include using Thai nominee to run a real estate firm in Pattaya.

 

Pol Lt Gen Sompong Chingduang, acting commissioner of the Immigration Bureau, said Natalia Nikiforova, was arrested in Tambon Na Klua of Chon Buri’s Bang Lamung district under a warrant issued by the Pattaya Court on June 29, 2016.

 

She was arrested at the Nesta Asia Group on charges of being an alien carrying out business prohibited to foreigners.

 

Sompong said Nikiforova used a Thai nominee as a front for her real estate business and did not pay tax. She instead remitted her income back to her motherland, thus affecting the Thai economy.

 

Sompong said Nikiforova has left the country and reentered with a new name and a new passport but the bureau’s bio-metric iris-scanning system identified her as the wanted person on the arrest warrant.
