Swede arrested in Bangkok


On Thursday 15 September, 45-year-old John Patrick Kjellstrom from Sweden and his Thai wife were arrested in Don Muang in the Thai capital on charges that he has threatened public officials in both Sweden and Thailand over many years.

The arrest follows representations about intimidation with menaces made against the public prosecutor in Stockholm as well as Thai customs officials.

Further details of what this referred to were not reported, but the alleged offences were said to have been committed over many years.

The suspect had entered Thailand in 2007 via the airport in Phuket and was on overstay. He was detained pending prosecution.
