A deputy commander of the Suvarnabhumi Airport immigration office confirmed Wednesday that immigration police blacklisted Hong Kong student activist Joshua Wong as requested by china.
Pol Col Pruthipong Prayoonsiri, deputy commander of the Suvarnabhumi immigration office, said China has sent a request to the Thai government to seek cooperation to deny him entry to the kingdom.
“As a result, the Immigration Bureau blacklisted him and held him for deportation. When officers informed him, Joshua Wong did not oppose it,” Pruthipong said.
