A Russian man and Uzbek woman have been arrested in Thailand after spending more than a decade on the run for their involvement in an online banking scam.
The pair distributed malware that was used to electronically transfer money from the accounts of victims.
Ukrainsky was arrested in Pattaya where he operated a yacht rental business. Komova was arrested at a hotel in Koh Chang.
Pol Maj Gen Surachet Hakphan told reporters at a briefing on Thursday afternoon that the arrests came after the FBI asked the authorities in Thailand for help in arresting the pair.
Officers from the Anti Money Laundering Office also withheld more than 50 bank accounts from the suspects.
Ukrainsky and Komova will now be extradited to the US where they will stand trial, Pol Maj Gen Surachet said.
