Big Oud follows in Big Joke’s footsteps: SIX arrested on fake visa/passport charges

The new head of Thai immigration is taking a leaf out of the book of promotion of the previous incumbent.

“Big Oud” has now got his nickname on vinyl signs announcing the latest arrests of foreigners. 

The modus operandi used to be a feature of media savvy Lt-Gen Surachate “Big Joke” Hakparn who was sacked in April. 

Now Lt-Gen Sompong Chingduang is getting in on the publicity act.

The vinyl board proclaimed “Big Oud’s” policy was carried out in SIX (highlighted in bold colors) cases. 

These were as follows according to Naew Na:

1. With the help from the “Ice Team” Indian nationals Athul Vazholath, 25, and Aswin Kunnum, 27, were arrested on June 19th and Sidhu Singh,23, and Gill Singh, 40, more Indians, were nabbed on June 21st.

All were about to board Philippine Airline planes bound for Canada. They all had fake Canadian visas. 

2. On 23rd June Indian national Amith Panda, 41, was stopped by Suvarnabhumi immigration trying to board an Air China plane bound for Canada. He had a fake Singaporean passport. 

Mr Panda said he had bought the passport from a Nepali guy called “Baba” who he had paid $1,000 US dollars. 

3. Again with the help of the “Ice Team” immigration arrested Ayman A.K. Abukhousa, 32, who was trying to fly to Germany on Lufthansa. He had a fake UAE passport and was intending on working in Germany.
