Visa liaison of top Bangkok school arrested for running fake visa and work permit business
Immigration police apprehended a female visa liaison officer and an employee of a top Bangkok school for running a fake visa and work permit business.
Channel 7 reported that Rudee or “Yaya” used her school as a front to run a fake visa and work permit business; charging her clients anywhere between 20,000 and 50,000 baht per person.
There were 50 foreigners who used her service and were all offered false documentation.
The 40-year-old Yaya was arrested at Chaeng Wattana government complex after information was received from the Thai consulate in Savannakhet in Laos that foreigners had presented fake documentation, said a report from Naew Na.
Aside from Yaya, Theerapong or “Ton”, another employee at the school has also been arrested.
The two were responsible for contracts and criminal background checks at the school.
They have been found to be using the school as a front to operate a visa agency. None of the foreigners with the fake documentation at the consulate in Savannakhet were found to have anything to do with the school who have brought charges against their employees, Thaivisa reported.
Fake stamps and signatures were on the documentation. About 50 people had used their service as agents between March 2018 and September of last year.
Channel 7 showed the visa officer being arrested at Chaeng Wattana.
The school has been named only as “A”.
Immigration chief Lt-Gen Sompong Chingduang and Region 3 officials presented details of the case at Suan Phlu immigration HQ yesterday.
