Fake visa schools to be hit with charges

Post by buksida » Sat May 05, 2018 10:14 am

Police will next week press charges against a number of international and language schools with falsifying visa documents on behalf of foreigners.

Previous police crackdowns found a number of foreign criminals in possession of education visas, which police believe were illegally obtained in order to allow suspects to remain in Thailand longer than on tourist visas.

The schools set to be charged allegedly colluded with Thai brokers and a group of immigration police officers to offer student visas to individuals who were known not to have any intention of studying during their stay in the country, Tourist Police Bureau deputy chief Surachate Hakparn told the Bangkok Post yesterday.

"We now know who the brokers and police officers are and are going to act against the schools," he said.

The move followed the arrest of 64 foreign suspects in 125 locations, including international schools. "Students" holding non-immigrant visas known as "ED" visas are allowed to live in the country on a yearly basis, he said.

they're going to act against the schools but no mention of acting against the police officers. Could this be possible? (snark)
