Immigration crackdown nets 522 law-breaking foreigners
There was no let up in the Thai immigration drive to rid the country of people on overstay and those who have entered the kingdom illegally.
Daily News reported that there was a Valentine’s Day roundup at 220 places resulting in the arrest of 522 foreigners.
These were mostly migrant workers on overstay or who had entered illegally.
Various workplaces, hotels and flats were raided in the sweep.
Immigration chief Lt-Gen Surachate “Big Joke” Hakparn was notable by his absence on this occasion with deputy Maj-Gen Itthiphon presiding over affairs at the Chana Songkhram police station near Khao San road last night.
