PATTAYA – March 29, 2013 [Pattaya Daily News]; At 12:20 a.m., a married couple was arrested for opening an illegal language school by Pol. Lt. Col. Phassakorn Phaijit, Deputy Superintendent, acting to assist the work of the Center of Protecting Children, Teenagers and Women, section 2; together with Pol. Lt. Col. Omsin Sukkarnkha, investigation officer; and Pol. Lt. Col. Kamol Thaweesri, Inspector.

The suspects were identified as Mr. Ralph Vias, age 45, nationality Germany; and Mrs. Phayao Vias, age 39. The couple are the owners of the German International School, address 8/109-134 Soi Nong Hin, Moo 9 Tambon Nong Preu, Amphur Banglamung, Chonburi province.

Police had been notified by more than 10 parents that the school did not have a work permission card, and made false advertising claims.

One of the complaining parents, Mrs. Siriyaboon Songsaeng, age 34, said that she and her foreign husband had sent her son, age 3 years old, to study in the kindergarten level. The school claimed that if students progressed and graduated from secondary school grade 6 at their language school, they will be able to continue studying in German.

So the parents paid more than 100,000 THB to the school to enroll their son. But when later checking on the school, the parents discovered the school did not have a work permission card. Fearful of being cheated, the worried parents joined together to notify the police.

After receiving the complaints, the police gathered evidence on the school, and asked the court to issue the arrest warrant. While later checking the history of Mr. Ralph, police found that he had arrest warrants from his native Germany involving many criminal cases.

Initially, the police charged Mr. Ralph in an accusation of cheating people and sent him to prosecute. Police also coordinated with officers of the German embassy to acknowledge his arrest.
