Crackdown on illegal teachers: Police target international schools in “X-Ray Outlaw Foreigner” campaign

Thai Rath reported that crime buster Surachet Hakpal was targeting international schools that knowingly aid and abet illegal teachers on their staff.

Surachet – the deputy commissioner for the tourist police – mentioned that some illegals were even teaching language classes at kindergartens in Chonburi.

He said that schools where illegals and over-stayers were found would be investigated to see if school officials had helped them.

The top cop – called Big Joke in the Thai media – was at a press conference at the Ratchada Rot Fai market where police announced raids on 144 places nationwide targeting mostly the dark skinned community.

Most of those arrested were Nigerians, Cameroonians and Romanians. Forty one of these were in Bangkok and were presented for the press as drugs tests found three positive. Some 25 were charged with illegal entry and 16 were on overstay.

Surachet said that the illegals come to Thailand taking jobs as language teachers in schools but get up to romance scams, prostitution, call center activities, human trafficking and drug related crime.

This third such sweep of illegals was trumpeted as “X-Ray Outlaw Foreigner” but exactly what this meant was not explained by Thai Rath.
