Thai immigration officer said to be involved in kidnapping of tourist | News by Samui TimesSome 2 million Yuan or 10 million baht was paid in ransom by the husband and family of the victim referred to as “Jinchai”.

She arrived at Suvarnabhumi on May 8th and was soon bundled into a van and taken to a hotel in Bangkok where she was held.

She was then transferred to a rented house in Pattaya, then taken to Koh Samet before being taken back to Bangkok.

Her husband Han – a man of mixed Chinese and Korean ancestry – and his wife’s relatives paid the ransom in four installments only for the gang to demand 5 million baht more.

Thai police got involved on 18th of May.

They found out the names of a Thai woman called Wansikarn and that of four Chinese nationals who were part of the gang. Wansikarn is in custody but the gang of four Chinese have fled abroad.

Now police are hunting ten other Thais involved in the kidnapping and extortion.

Surachet Hakpal, deputy commissioner of the Tourist Police Bureau, said that the cops know the identity of all the suspects.

Sanook did not report on the whereabouts of the victim though she appeared to have been rescued.
