Three Rohingya terrorists captured over LTTE links

(Colombo Lankapuvath June 18) Thailand security authorities have arrested three Rohingya men allegedly involved in passport forgery and human and weapons trafficking.

It is also reported that the three men had links with the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) in Sri Lanka and are alleged on having links with the al-Qaeda terrorists as well.

The arrest of Mohammad Ali Hussein, Mohammad Mudbahem and Chubri Awae followed a joint operation between the Department of Special Investigation, armed forces and immigration police.

Mr Mohammad Ali was arrested on Monday (15), Mr Mohammad Mudbahem, was nabbed in Songkhla’s Hat Yai district on the same day. The date and place where Mr Chubri was caught remained unclear reported the Bangkok Post yesterday (17).

Mr Mohammad Ali was alleged to be the leader of a transnational gang trafficking illegal migrant workers to a third country through Thailand and forging and supplying fake passports, DSI chief Pol Col Thawee Sodsong said.

Mr. Mohammad Ali was released from jail in Malaysia in April after serving two years. He was convicted of posing a national security threat.

Mr Mohammad Mudbahem was said to have succeeded him as the most influential transnational criminal in the South. The gang was involved with war weapons and the drugs trade in the southern region.

The large criminal syndicate is still moving in certain areas in Pattani, Yala and Narathiwat, "Pol Col Thawee said."Some evidence tracked from mobile phones also shows the group is linked to the southern violence."

The three suspects will be charged with brokering human trafficking to a third country, forging and selling fake passports, and assisting illegal migrants to enter Thailand in order to pass to another country.
