At 10:48 am today (May 20) Mr Siriphong Leeprasit Thalang district chief (Palad) had publicised the two suspects faces after they escaped from Sakoo Police Station in Thalang. He also asked anyone who saw the men to contact police.

Sakoo Police Chief Col Jirasak Seamsak revealed to The Phuket News that, “It is true that there are two men who presented false Portuguese passports in the name of Mr Sandeep Singn, 30, and Mr Raj Kumar, 35.

"The fake passports were spotted by Phuket Airport immigration officers in the early morning. They were taken to Sakoo Police Station for questioning at 5am," he added.

Police found that the two men departed from Phuket on May 18 for Korea but Korea immigration identified the fake passports and sent them back to Phuket.

“While they were waiting to be taken to the Phuket Court after we finished questioned them, they asked us to go to the toilet and smoke in front of the Sakoo Police Station. They managed to escape from the station at 8 am.”

“Police in the area have been directed to intercept them but have so far been unsuccessful. Every police station has been informed about the men. Police believe that they were still in Phuket. Taxi drivers or anyone who sees these men should call the police or call 191,” he added.

Well, same-same, but different as the story of 2 young boys on their way in police van to court, just able to 'step out' of the van at a traffic light on red.  ( as reported)

Perhaps these 2 cases are a part of 'police training'?

Indians probably come here to do serious organized crime which is why they used fake passports. 

Incompetence Sakoo Police should be fired! Luckily, they have been recaptured.

They look like Arabs travelling with false Passports and ID Cards.
They may have accomplices in Phuket to prepare a firework..

Staggering incompetence from Sakoo Police.  either that, or perhaps a couple police just made a few years salary in about 15 minutes.  Either way...sheer buffoonery.
