Authorities from the Royal Thai Police (RTP) are collaborating with the Interior Ministry to revoke the Thai citizenship of a Chinese woman, Navaporn Phakiatsakul, whose lengthy record includes alleged fraud, human trafficking, surrogacy, and document forgery. Navaporn, aged 53, was apprehended on April 8 in a building on Silom Road in the Bang Rak district during a crackdown on four locations in Bangkok, including her home in Yannawa district’s Sathon soi 10.
Deputy national police chief, Pol Gen Surachate Hakparn, stated on Saturday that Navaporn provided false information to assist her compatriots in obtaining non-citizen identification cards or pink cards by claiming they were relatives who had relocated to her residence. An investigation revealed that Navaporn acquired her Thai citizenship after marrying a Thai man around 1988-1989. She divorced in 1991 and gained citizenship the following year.
Pol Gen Surachate explained that Navaporn then became a surrogate mother for Chinese nationals, giving her children the legal right to claim Thai citizenship, as well as the ability to own assets and land in Thailand worth billions of baht. Furthermore, she procured other women for surrogacy, who subsequently gave birth in a neighboring country with the assistance of Thai doctors. During the raid, the police discovered that 26 women residing in the building had claimed to be Navaporn’s relatives, as recorded at the Bang Rak District Office.
Nonetheless, as they examine a confiscated thumb drive, PolGen Surachate believes that there may be more surrogate mothers. He stated, “Ms Navaporn also forged entry documents for other surrogate mothers. Despite having clear evidence against her, she still denies the charges.” The police will work with the Public Health Ministry to examine the list of doctors involved in these cases.
Navaporn is facing charges of falsifying and using counterfeit official documents, providing false information to authorities, and using fake visa stamps on international travel documents. Pol Gen Surachate asserted, “The woman will face punishment in Thailand first before she and all her children are deported.” The permanent secretary for the interior has been in discussions with him regarding the revocation of Navaporn’s Thai citizenship. Nonetheless, even if she is deported, executing such business ventures will be challenging for her.
Again, a headline that doesn’t match the content. First off, no shocking news to read here, – from our sick and perverted world permeated by greed. Second, I look at the drawing/picture and see a Caucasian woman, so that makes it alluring to read the article. Was this breeding done to create a mix of Thai and European blood, which seems to be desirable in entertainment and advertising? The lady, if I may call her so, was Chinese..
