PATTAYA – January 20, 2013 [Pattaya Daily News]; at 2 p.m., a report of a foreign woman using a fake passport to open a bank account at a Kasikorn bank was received by Pol. Lt. Col. Kiettisak Sathongoy, Deputy Superintendent, Pattaya police station.

After receiving the report, he commanded Pol. Lt. Col. Chitdecha Songhong, Inspector; and Pol. Capt. Jamras Thongjinda, Deputy Inspector; to send a police team from the Chonburi Center of Protecting and Subduing for International Crime to the bank to investigate.

The bank officer who notified the police was Mr. Sirichai Sathitchaipaisarn from the Sukhumvit Road branch of Kasikorn Bank. At scene, police found the foreign woman being detained at the bank with her husband. The police inspected her passport, which stated her identity as Ms. Barry Barnet Amler, age 34, from Belgium.

The police then sent her passport information to the expert officer of Belgium embassy in Thailand to inspect. The embassy then reported it was a fake passport. So the police restrained her to investigate, and discovered that her real name is Ms. Ninelle Amisi Kyamasa, age 33, from the nation of Congo.

Meanwhile, her husband was identified as Mr. Mirgo Nelson Jotamo, age 36, from Mozambique. His passport revealed that his Thailand visa had expired.

During questioning, Ms. Ninelle confessed that an Australian friend had forged the fake passport for her. She wanted to use the passport to open the bank account with the Kasikorn Thai bank, to receive illegal money that would be transferred from a foreign country.

She would have been paid 5% of the total transferred money as her share, before forwarding the money to the network of scammers in a foreign country.

Initially, the police charged Ms. Ninelle with an accusation of “using and having for use a fake passport,” and charged Mr. Mirgo with an accusation of being a foreigner who overstayed in the Kingdom. The couple was sent to the investigation officer to prosecute further according to the law.
