Naew Na reported that a 48 year old Russian man was desperate to get back into Thailand after being blacklisted.
So he changed his surname to his grandmother's and got a new passport and flew back and returned to Koh Samui.
Boris Petrov was picked up by immigration on Lamai Beach road.
It was discovered that he had entered Thailand again at Suvarnabhumi airport under a new name on June 27th.
He has admitted to being plain old Boris Petrov rather than Bornislav Thiria Nefki, that was his grandmother's surname. (The name is transliterated from Thai and may contain errors).
He was originally expelled for working in Thailand in a job not specified on his documents.
He will now have his visa revoked and be deported again.
