Some of the “most wanted” foreigners who were at large in Thailand have been arrested in five separate operations according to Immigration police chief Pol Lt-General Natthorn Phrosunthorn.
A hit man from Russia, an armed robber, an escaped convict and a counterfeiter have been detained by investigators.
Andrey Dzyatkovskiy, 35, an assassin and referred to as Russia’s “most wanted” was captured in Roi Et on the 25th of May, in a joint operation with Interpol and Thai authorities. The Russian is wanted for murder and attempted murder charges as well as possession of weapons.
He has been a frequent visitor to Thailand but was finally caught filling up his car at a petrol station in Roi Et.
Evgeny Korovin, 26, another Russian, was arrested in Phuket. He is wanted on armed robbery charges.
His crimes involved robbing people at gunpoint of valuables worth in the region of three million baht.
A third Russian, Dimitrii Shhuratov, 29, was nabbed on May 19th in a Bangkok hotel. He is an escaped convict and considered dangerous to the public.
And yet another Russian national was detained at a Pattaya condominium, when 56-year-old mafia leader Anatolii Samodov was found. He is thought to have been behind the rigging of auctions by threatening bidders and forcing them to withdraw their bids.
