PATTAYA – October 17th, 2013 [Pattaya Daily News]; – at 16.00hrs a press conference was held to announce that the local Thai police had arrested a local Russian “rapper,” who was now being held on the 3rd floor of the Ruakwinai building, which is part of the Muang Pattaya police station. Alex Tiff was the 32- year old suspect under arrest and a “person of interest” to Interpol for his involvement in dealing with a great deal of drugs, (both selling and possessing) in Russia. He had been sentenced for 20 years in prison, and not long afterwards the Russian police detected that the man had come to lay-low more than 2-years ago in Pattaya together with his Russian wife, even though the Russian embassy had canceled his passport.

From investigations and searching records, the Chonburi Immigration Bureau found that the man’s real name was Mr. Atem Yuvalov, a 32-year old Russian, who had escaped to Thailand, and was doing DJ work and “rapping” for his living. He lived happily in Pattaya, and was famous in ‘Rap circle’ around Pattaya, so the police found that they could find him easily, as he worked in Kiss Food Restaurant, near Siam Country Club Road, so the police went in force to check-on and arrest him. The police had previous information that the suspected man had a tattoo on his upper left arm, and the man named Alex had one too, so he confessed that he was the man in named in the warrant and surrendered himself to police.

Primarily, the man told the police that he was not involved with drugs, but that he was set up by his business rival in Russia, because he was a construction contractor. However, our Thai Police General Wutti Lippatapallop, revealed that the man was the same one that INTERPOL wanted, so the Chonburi Immigration Bureau will be sending him to face further prosecution in Russia, where he is facing the bleak prospect of a cold Russian 20-year prison sentence.
