BANGKOK: Thai Immigration Bureau detained a Sri Lankan man at the Chiangmai Airport for possession of a forged Malaysian passport two days ago.

In a statement, the bureau said the 22-year-old suspect was nabbed by immigration enforcement officers at 5pm on Saturday, before he could board a flight to Hong Kong and then to Zurich.

"Based on investigations, we found that the man's passport originally belonged to a Malaysian woman," it said, adding that the authorities would conduct further investigations if the case involved a member of a fake passport syndicate. - Bernama
