An Immigration seminar in Pattaya was training officers in how to spot money laundering and how they could apply the law.

Thaivisa notes that this comes at a time when immigration has been trying to root out agents who arrange long stay visas for foreigners with money in bogus bank accounts.

Hundreds of immigration officers attended the seminar in Bang Lamung chaired by force bigwig Lt-Gen Suwat Chaengyortsuk. 

Sophon Cable TV said on Facebook that it was designed to increase the efficiency of officers in spotting financial irregularities and understanding what they can do according to the law. 

The “ongoing training” would help immigration with more modern methods in detecting crime both today and into the future. 

The public were reminded again how to contact immigration to report offences by going to their Suan Phlu, Bangkok HQ or calling the 1178 hotline. 

Sophon made no mention about any specific cases connected to the training seminar.
