Japanese police wanted Yasuo for allegedly manipulating stock prices in Japan, the Thai police said. He was arrested at his house on Rama II area in Samut Sakhon province yesterday (July 28).

Immigration commissioner Nathathorn Prousoonthorn said the suspect had been a businessman and lawyer in Japan and his group had manipulated the share prices of a company during 2000-05, causing damage estimated at 12 billion yen (B4 billion), Lt Gen Nathathorn said.

The suspect fled to Thailand in 2005 but has never worked here.

Lt Gen Nathathorn said when Yasuo was seeking a retirement visa, immigration police checked his profile because his face looked different from the passport photo. The check revealed that there was a warrant of the Japanese police for his arrest.

Yasuo admitted that he was wanted in his home country, the immigration chief said.

Thai police said Japan had informed them he might have had plastic surgery to avoid the arrest.

National police chief Chakthip Chaijinda said it was the first arrest by Thai police of a fugitive after having undergone plastic surgery.

The Japanese man had kept a low profile in Thailand and used bank accounts and mobile phone number registered under the names of Thai people, Gen Chakthip said.

The police also learned that the man had rented a condominium room for over B100,000 a month on Sukhumvit Rd in Bangkok before moving to Maha Chai area on Rama II Rd in Samut Sakhon province.
