The Thai Tourist Police have executed the 20th raid in their “X-Ray Outlaw Foreigner” campaign. Again, they’ve turned up dozens of foreigners on overstay and people entering the Kingdom illegally.

Eighteen schools were raided for illegals including three international schools and 2 language institutes.

Pol Maj Gen Surachete Hakpal – aka ‘Big Joke’ in the Thai media – spoke at 2 am this morning, near Khao San Road outside the Chana Songkhram Police Station (does this man ever sleep?!).

Eleven foreigners were arrested for overstaying their visas. Tourist police named the top three overstayers…

1. 40 year old Irina Mesheryakova from Uzbekistan. Living in Chonburi she had overstayed almost six years – 2,002 days.

2. 39 year old Tynkkyen Marko Samuel, a Finnish national arrested in Udon Thani on three years overstay – 1,101 days.

3. 33 year old Shivdayal Mahi Tiwari, living in Bangkok on 1,057 days overstay – nearly three years.

An additional 46 people were arrested for illegal entry – 23 from Myanmar, India 9, Cambodia 7, Laos 5 and Vietnam 2 people. Ten people from Myanmar, three Thais and one Nigerian were arrested on other matters. In total 75 locations were raided. This number included 13 regular schools, three international schools and two English language schools.
