    The Immigration Police successfully arrested 3 foreigners in Suvarnabhumi Airport holding fake passports. The first person is a 47-year-old Iranian man with a position as a refugee in France. The next suspect person is a nameless man estimated to be about 57 years old using fake Burmese Passport, and the last person is a 28-year-old Kenyan woman.

    All of the suspects were arrested in Suvarnabhumi Airport with the help of the airport officials and security. They were caught by the Biometrics system that revealed all the passports were fake or the passports belong to someone else when they handed it over to immigration.

    The Iranian man used another person’s French passport to enter Thailand at the airport. He was traveling into Thailand from Germany and had a Cambodian Visa in the passport used at immigration.   Biometrics showed that the information in the chip was only 19% similar to the man’s appearance.

  • Identity of man murdered and dismembered established

    The dismembered body parts found floating in Bangkok’s Saen Saeb Canal have been identified as those of a 49-year-old Thai man, Winai Jaisaen, based on the information from his two thumbs.


    Police are contacting his relatives to provide information for their investigation into his suspected murder and dismemberment, a source at the Royal Thai Police’s Central Police Forensic Science Division revealed on Sunday.

    The body identification was made possible from the discovery of his upper torso in the canal near Ramkhamhaeng Soi 85/3 in the Hua Mark area of Bang Kapi district on Saturday afternoon. The discovered body part indicated the victim was a large-built, short-haired, bearded man in his late 40s, who had also sustained a six-inch-long knife-wound.

    His upper thigh was retrieved at 10am on Sunday from the canal near the Rama 9 Pond community – three kilometres from where the upper torso was found. Police suspected the leg belonged to the same victim, said Metropolitan Police Area 4 deputy head Pol Colonel Suriya Nakkaew. An hour later the victim’s right leg was fished out of the canal only 50 metres from the Bang Kapi pier near Lat Phrao Soi 148, rescue worker Kosol Lawirat said.
