Thai officials later found a Canadian passport in Mr Mikhail’s possession making his story not quite add up, to which he then claimed to have dual citizenship.

His Canadian passport had all the correct stamps to enter Cambodia that had been issued in Vietnam.

Official records showed that Mr Mikhail came into Thailand via Suvarnabhumi Airport on January 31st and left via Laos on February 23rd.

Authorities are now reaching out to both the Cambodian and Canadian Embassy’s to try and get to the bottom of the young man’s story.
