Pattaya, the 1st of January 2010 [Pattaya Daily News]: Police Colonel Athitsawad Kamolrat (Chon-Buri Immigration Superintendant) along with a team of Immigration police successfully apprehended two international fugitives from Kazakhstan at 5:30pm on Friday. Mr. Kulman Abdikerimovich [53] and Mr. Gaziz Kulmanovich [26] are both wanted in relation to a 300 million baht fraud case in their native country of Kazakhstan.

It is alleged that Mr. Abdikerimovich and Mr. Kulmanovich were housing contractors in Kazakhstan who had been hired to construct up to 470 homes for people in the region. All of the families were required to put a down payment of up to 100,000 baht before construction would commence on their new home. It is alleged that the two men with over 300 million baht proceeded to flee Kazakhstan before construction ever commenced. Kazak Police tracked the two fugitives down to the Thai border at which point they contacted Thai Immigration officials and requested their assistance in the case.

Immigration officers from Thailand uncovered the profiles of two men fitting the Kazakhstani description, who had entered the Kingdom via the Nong Khai border crossing with Laos on the 25th of September 2009. Further investigation revealed that the two men were believed to be staying at the Sky Beach Condominiums, North Pattaya. At which point the Chon-Buri Immigration team were sent to the location, where they successfully apprehended the two fugitives.

The two men continue to deny the allegations brought against them, explaining that it is all a big misunderstanding. Officers are continuing their investigations, with the help of the Kazakhstani embassy and have detained the two suspects pending legal proceedings. The two men have further been charged with entering the Kingdom of Thailand illegally.
