Thailand, the 9th of September 2010: U.S. Consul General Mrs. Susan Stevenson revealed that the United States had been taking an increasing interest in the abundant smuggling of narcotics across the Myanmar-Thai border, with bounties offered for the arrest of the top 16 known perpetrators being revealed to the Thai public in cooperation with Thailand’s Narcotics Suppression Bureau.

Mrs. Stevenson, following a detailed trip around Thailand’s northern provinces of Chiang Mai, Maesai and Chiang Rai, explained the extent of Thailand’s drug smuggling issues, prompting the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration to offer up to US$2 million in rewards for information provided leading to the arrest of the major dealers involved in the illegal operations.

The sixteen most wanted suspects are, Mr. Wei Hsueh Kang, Mr. Maenchai Kesonsukhon, Mr. Somchai Bua-khao, Mr. Surachai Ngoen-thongfu, Mr. Utsaman Salae-maeng, Mr. Choetchai Jai-thiangthamying, Mr. Natthawong Dacho, Mr. Prayut Hongsakham, Mr. Manit Khieo-moei, Mr. Rodee Yakoh, Mrs. Mutiat Titiola Olubi, Mr. Jadoh Aei-sei,  Mr. James Joseph Bulger, Mr. Bruce Craig Fitzgerald, Mr. Haji Ehai Ibrahim and Mr. Stanley George Litwin.

Joint operations between the U.S. DEA, Thai authorities and the general public will also involve a detailed ‘most wanted’ campaign, with photographs of all sixteen offenders being spread across all major northern Thai localities, border checkpoints and in Myanmar. Mrs. Stevenson believed that the new initiative, known as “Operation Hot Spot,” and offers of lucrative rewards will significantly aid authorities in their search for the notorious ringleaders of a multi-billion dollar trade flooding the Kingdom.

Drug trafficking poses one of the greatest threats to our communities and our children. Drug traffickers are fuelled by greed disregarding the damage their illicit business causes to society. As such, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and Royal Thai Police Narcotics Suppression Bureau (NSB) are now offering rewards for drug trafficking related information which leads to arrest of known perpetrators or significant seizures on their operations. To provide information call the DEA and NSB at 66-2-205-4444 or visit, www.dea-rewards.com/len/index.php.
