Shocking footage shows four men taking a woman at Bangkok airport

Recommended Posts

THIS is the shocking moment a tourist is brazenly kidnapped inside an airport moments after stepping off a flight.

Jincai Chen, 39, landed at Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok, Thailand, on May 6 in the evening after a short-haul flight from Hong Kong.

But shortly after leaving the plane she was followed by four Chinese men dressed in black and one Thai woman.

CCTV next to a walkway shows Jincai walking with two of the gang who are holding her by the arms while another in a red shirt is a few paces ahead throughout the abduction.

The gang usher Jincai through security checks before two more men dressed in black join the group at the luggage carousel.

Shockingly, police said the gang received help from ten Thais — including a top immigration cop inside the airport — before demanding 15 million baht ($620,000) in ransom money from Jincai’s husband.

The disturbing crime — committed inside the secure area of the airport — only emerged after her husband paid 10 million baht ($411,000) but refused to stump up the rest and called police on May 18.

Jincai — having been ferried to hotels and rented rooms across Thailand — was finally dumped on the roadside in the Bang Na district of Bangkok on May 19 at 11pm.

Pol. Major General Surachate Hakparn, who is leading the investigation, said four Chinese people, a Thai woman named Wansikan Termthanapat and up to ten Thais, including an unnamed Police Senior Sergeant Major from the Immigration Police Office, were involved in the abduction.

“Arrest warrants have been issued for four Chinese suspects who have already fled Thailand. They are Wenqui Sun, Ming Song, Dongliang Sun and Meiling Kai,” he said/

“We know the identity of all the suspects and will be tracking them down for their involvement in the crime.’’

Police said they received a complaint on May 18 from Jincai’s husband, Han Young Lim, who is of mixed Chinese and Korean origin with Tanzanian nationality.

Han told officers he had already paid the ($411,000) in ransom to the gang but then they asked for more.

CCTV footage from inside the airport was used to track the suspects, who were found to have fled to hotels in Bangkok, Pattaya, and Rayong.

They allegedly returned to Bangkok on May 19 before dumping Jincai on the roadside at 11pm then catching flights out of the country.

Pol. Major General Surachate said: “Officers became involved on May 18 and launched an intense operation. This put pressure on the gang who then released the victim.

“She has testified about the crime and we will also receive her husband’s statements. We will pursue the gang and attempt to reclaim the money they paid.’’

Suvarnabhumi Airport is the 20th busiest in the world — handling more than 60 million passengers in 2017 — but it has been beset by security breaches.

In April, airport security officer Thanat Rattana, 25, was sacked after being caught on camera stealing a bundle of cash from an 89-year-old tourist.

While also in April, airport security guard Busakorn Somkwamdee, 26, was caught on CCTV stealing case from a passenger’s handbag as it went through an X-ray machine.
