The three women, named as Wang Jianlan, 31; Zhang Jingjing, 30; and Jiang Yuemei, 32; were presented to the press in Bangkok by Immigration Commissioner Pol Lt Gen Nathathorn Prousoontorn on Monday (Aug 29).

However, Gen Nathathorn reported that the three women were found in hiding in central Phuket and arrested a week earlier, on Monday, August 22. (See story here.)

The women had entered Thailand on tourist visas, Gen Nathathorn noted.

The three are wanted by Chinese authorities for their alleged involvement in a major tax fraud case, Gen Nathathorn said.

An investigation also found the trio were alleged members of a transnational crime gang that smuggled hazardous substances into several countries.

Phuket Immigration Chief Col Kantawat Pongsatabordee denied to comment at all about three Chinese women, who were arrested in his jurisdiction.

Pol Lt Col Archeep Jareonsanthisuk, Deputy Chief of Phuket Immigration, however, offered, “They were arrested in Phuket, but this case does not involve the Phuket Immigration Office – just Bangkok only.”

If they were illegally taken, then PN has committed an offence then by publishing them? You have the same logic as Rorii who tries to tell us that nominee shareholders are not illegal. If that is the case, I would suggest you lodge a formal complaint.

Christy... I think the t-shirts say "My friends took me on a vacation to Thailand and all I got was this ugly green shirt, Drink Chang"

To serve Joe12 at the dot:
Prime Minister Prayut bans parading of suspects as it must be seen as human right violation
(That will take away 20% of the RTP workload, hahaha)
Right & Liberty Protection Dept of Justice Ministery has adviced the Prime Minister.

About Joe12 particular question what photo suspect parades in police station have to do with the non observation by camera of the suspect in the DSI custody room, I think it is quite clear.
In police stations were human rights violated with parading suspects to public ( not serving any purpose, as also the Prime Minister said) while in DSI custody suspect was not monitored to protect the same human rights, 'overdone thinking' as cctv observation would have not shown to public.
Cctv observation could have saved man's life.

For more info I direct Joe12 to Right & Liberty Protection Dept of Ministery of Justice in BKK.

Kurt...I would be interested to know the relevant section of the law that proscribes that the photos in this article "are illegally taken".

What has your ramblings about the sad death of a person in custody got to do with this article?

Such illegal photo's should not be shown at all in first place.
A accused is innocent until quilt has been proven and court has judged that. 
Therefore the photos are illegally taken and intruding people privacy.

Photo's are just ment for self satisfaction of police officers who are than just present in a police station.
I call it illegal safari photo's.

Actually quite contradictive with that DSI statement regarding the 'self hanged' retired land official, who was more than a decade on the run for the law.
DSI didn't monitor him in his cell room by CCTV to protect his privacy rights, as DSI said.
Thai law executing looks a bit 'rubber executing'.
Gan be bend any direction.

to attention of thai Joe12:
Police coroners have concluded that bleeding in the stomach, a ruptured lever and suffocation caused the death of the former land office chief.
And yes ( for Joe12) the doctors don't agree with statements of DSI. After all DSI people are no medical doctors. Right.

And again, the detained person was not careful observed by DSI,through glass windows of his cell room.

Joe12's suggestion that the man could have sit/hanged at the door and so was not visible should have ringed bells. When a detained person is not visible you check out why.
However, this cell room has 2 glass windows, one is almost till floor level!
Joe12 overlooked that I did write glass windows (plural).

Reading and thinking over about what you read is a art.  :)

Scolding respectless, calling someone a lunatic, is falling in another chapter.
I think this comment site is not ment for calling readers names.

Police stations must be so dirty and dusty and over lit,  when these people have to wear dust masks and dark sun glasses....
