PHUKET – Thai immigration police in Phuket have announced the apprehension of a 48-year-old Danish National Peter Jensen sought by Interpol for alleged tax fraud.

Phuket Immigration Police received an order from the Thailand Immigration Bureau headquarters in Bangkok on October 28 to track down and arrest Peter Jensen, 48, as he was wanted by Interpol on an arrest warrant issued by the court in Hjorring, Denmark, explained Phuket Immigration Chief Sunchai Chokkajaykij yesterday.

According to records, Mr Jensen arrived in Thailand on August 3, 2010 via Suvarnabhumi International Airport in Bangkok. He extended his permit-to-stay multiple times, with the last one expiring on April 24, 2013.

“He has been charged with overstaying his visa,” said Col Sunchai. “We are now in the process of handing him over to Interpol.”

Phuket Immigration officers told the Phuket Gazette that Mr Jensen was wanted for avoiding paying taxes on multiple occasions and under several companies, totaling up to about 8.3mn Danish kroner (45.7mn baht)
