A Russian living in Pattaya who was arrested for possession of drugs in March was given bail and could have left Thailand.

He chose not to and perhaps with good reason. It has been discovered that he is wanted for murder in Russia.

Chonburi immigration moved to arrest Ivan Skiba yesterday at house number 506/5 Moo 12 Nong Prue, Bang Lamung.

His visa had run out on Sunday.

Back in March he was caught in possession of ecstasy and ganja and a judgement on June 22nd handed down a sentence of 13 months and 15 days that was suspended for two years.

He was granted bail earlier by the Pattaya court and was allowed to leave Thailand. He stayed.

Subsequently the Russian police contacted Chonburi immigration asking for help in finding Skiba concerning a murder committed in Russia on 9th October 2017.

Daily News reported that the suspect will serve time in Thailand before being deported back to Russia. – Daily News
