Surachate, better known as “Big Joke”, said the officers, who included police commandos, initially found more than 1,000 foreigners in Khlong Luang.
Surachate said the “Operation X-Ray Outlaw Foreigners” action was part of the government’s policy for the army, police and administrators to crack down on transnational criminals throughout Thailand. The crackdown has a particular focus on those without documents or who have overstayed their visa and engaged in wrongdoing, he said.
