Jensen in the hands of the Immigration Police today.

He will be sent back home to Denmark – where he is wanted for evading taxes totalling the equivalent of B53 million.

Peter Jensen, 48, was on an Interpol list of wanted people. Police said they received a letter from the Royal Danish Embassy in Bangkok informing them that Jensen was wanted and saying that he was suspected of being in Phuket.

Thai Police circulated a photo of the man to patrol officers, two of whom spotted a man who resembled the photograph in a local restaurant in Pa Khlok.

They asked him for his passport or ID but he said he was not carrying it. After close questioning they were able to confirm that the man was Jensen.

Records showed that he entered Thailand on August 31, 2010, through Suvarnabhumi Airport on a temporary visa which was extended several times. The most recent extnsion expired on April 24 last year.

Jensen admitted being in the country illegally and was taken to the police station. He is expected to be extradited soon.
