Immigration officers were checking parts of the town when they spotted a man “looking suspicious”. They asked him for his passport. When he could not produce it, they took him to the Immigration Police office for questioning.

The man told them his name was Amar Sended and admitted he had no passport. He was charged with entering and staying in the country illegally. He admitted both charges.

Officers are pursuing a theory that Sended is wanted in his own country and came to Thailand to meet up with other members of a Syrian criminal gang. Meanwhile, he is being held in custody.
