Immigration police searched a luxurious house in an estate in Bangkok’s Watcharaphol area today (Saturday). The house belongs to a Chinese businessman who allegedly set up the “Shanxi Province Association” in Thailand without a license from the Ministry of Interior.

The search of the house was witnessed by the president of the association, Yu Chi-xi, whose visa has been cancelled by Thai immigration police after he was found to have enriched himself by claiming to have connections with influential Thai figures.

The search did not uncover anything illegal, but police seized some official documents related to the house and his cars for examination.

Immigration police also searched a room in the Sena Nikhom 1 area, which was reportedly rented by the Chinese businessman and used as a temporary office for the association.
