When One Passport Isn’t Enough

The following story appeared in todays Bangkok Post and should speak for itself:

British man found with 452 fake passports


A British national of Algerian descent was arrested yesterday at Don Muang airport with 452 fake passports.

Pol Maj-Gen Suwat Thamrongsrisakul, the acting Immigration Police chief, said Mahieddine Daikh, 35, was nabbed at the departure lounge of the airport at 1am while he was about to board a flight for Amsterdam.

Found in his possession were 452 passports for Spain, Belgium, Portugal and France _ 138 in one suitcase and 314 in another.

Mr Daikh said he bought the 138 fake passports for 3,000 (220,000 baht) from a Pakistani man at Koh Samui in Surat Thani and planned to sell them in London. He denied knowing anything about the 314 others, saying the Pakistani told him the suitcase contained 100 pairs of jeans.

The man was initially charged with forgery.

Police are looking for the Pakistani man mentioned by him.
