TNA told the Thai public that people such as condo owners would face fines of 2,000 baht if they were caught renting property to foreigners and not reporting that fact to immigration. 

The fine would go up to 10,000 baht for hotels that failed to do so. 

The warning comes as a ministerial committee mulls even more serious penalties in moves to combat transnational crime.

In a latest case TNA said that a Malaysian national called Lasman Das Sundra Shah, 68, who had been deported back to his home country to face two charges of fraud had managed to sneak back into Thailand. 

Shah was sent back to Malaysia to face charges over defrauding 334,000 Ringgit or about 2.68 million baht. 

He was found staying at a condo in the Rama 3 area of Bangkok. The condo owner had not reported his whereabouts and faces charges of not reporting a foreigner and aiding in crime. 

TNA said that immigration had been active in checking hotels, condos, guest houses, houses, flats and other rental properties towards the end of last week. 

They said 260 places were checked without giving details.
