Tourist police plan criminal checks on 1,400 Nigerians


Tourist police plan to visit 1,400 Nigerians in Thailand next week to check that they have no connection with criminal activities, deputy tourist police chief Pol Maj Gen Surachet Hakpal said on Friday.

He said the measure is necessary for preventing criminals from coming to use Thailand as a base for illegal activities.
Surachet also urged members of the public to call the Tourist Police Bureau 1155 hotline if they detect foreigners involved in suspicious activities.
