Hungarian wanted overseas arrested in Bangkok, overstayed visa by 10 years

Thai Immigration police arrested a 48 year old Hungarian suspect who is wanted in his home country for alleged insurance fraud and has been staying in Thailand illegally for more than 10 years. Immigration police say the man is on 4,254 days overstay after entering Thailand in 2010 on a 60 day tourist visa.

Officers say the man was arrested at a condominium on Phetchaburi Road in Bangkok after discovering that he was on a wanted list on the Hungarian police site. He is being prosecuted for overstay and will be sent back to Hungary where he faces charges for creating fake documents to claim more than 401,394,145 Hungarian forint (around 42 million baht) from his insurance.
