Thai Immigration are celebrating two more high profile successes after more cases were resolved.

Following Monday’s arrest of an Indian man implicated in the attempted assassination of a political and love rival in his homeland came news of two more cases.

The first was a Hungarian husband and wife – Lajos Deaki and Lajosne Deaki wanted on an Interpol “Red Notice”. They had fled their homeland where they had been sentenced to 8 years each in a fraud case.

They had entered Thailand in July 2009 and been extending their tourist visas ever since. The latest of eight extensions was due for renewal in August.

They were arrested at a house in Banglamung.

The second case was a high profile Chinese fraudster. Zhang Qingduan, 38, entered Thailand last September on a “privilege ‘visa’ ” of one year duration. He was arrested in North Pattaya.

He is wanted by the Chinese authorities in connection with a massive investment fraud worth 500 million baht that defrauded 30,000 victims in his homeland.

Immigration also said that they had arrested many illegal nationals from Ghana, Nigeria and Cameroon in the last week.
