Immigration Police in Nong Khai province yesterday arrested a South Korean businessman wanted over the alleged embezzlement of 52 million won (Bt1.7 million) in construction materials bought in his native country last year.

Bu Yon Kyan, 58, was nabbed while trying to sneak into Thailand via a border pier in Nong Khai's Tha Bo district, having taken a long-tailed boat from Laos. He was initially charged with illegally entering Thailand.

It was reported that Bu also carried on a construction business in Laos and had visited Nong Khai several times before the arrest. Police have contacted the South Korean Embassy in Bangkok to arrange for extradition.
