A picture showed him having his lunch and a soda when Pol Capt Arun Moolikim of Division 6 Surat Thani immigration police dropped by to call time on his stay in Thailand. 

He had been overstaying in the kingdom for nearly eight years – a whopping 2,861 days. 

He was handed over to the local police

The media asked the public to keep calling in tips on the 1178 snitch-line. 

This was all done as part of Thailand’s moves to rid the country of undesirables under the auspices of immigration chief Lt-Gen Sompong “Big Oud” Chingduang, said Naew Na. 

The expected expulsion comes as Thailand welcomes thousands of Russian tourists Koh Samui and nearby islands for the high season.
