A meeting has been held at the Chon-Buri Immigration offices to discuss the ever increasing problem of illegal immigrant workers and beggars in Thailand, specifically on the streets of Pattaya.
Police Colonel Atisawit Kamonrat (Chon-Buri Immigration Commissioner) chaired the meeting at Chon-Buri’s Immigration Offices where the issue of illegal immigrants was discussed. In conjunction with Mr. Chanyut Hengtrakul (Former Chon-Buri Congress Member), Col. Kamonrat explained to the officers and administrators present, that a taskforce was being organised to sweep the Pattaya City area for illegal immigrant workers and beggars. Also discussed was the issue of fugitive foreigners hiding in Pattaya and Chon-Buri to avoid arrest by their home nations and those that have overstayed, invalid or non-existent visas.
Police Col. Kamonrat explained to the delegation that the problem of illegal immigrants coming into Thailand – primarily from the border nations of Burma, Laos and Cambodia – was escalating. As such, a joint police taskforce was in the process of being organised to combat the problem in Pattaya City and the Chon-Buri province entirely. Further to the investigations that will commence in Chon-Buri, the Thai government will also stage a press conference on the 14th of February to announce a crackdown nationwide in relation to the aforementioned issue. It is believed the Vice Prime Minister; Major General Sanan Khajonprasat will stage the announcement.
