June 11, 2024


In a move highlighting successful international cooperation, Indonesia deports Thai fugitive Chaowalit Thongduang. Wanted in Thailand for murder, attempted murder, and drug trafficking, Chaowalit was arrested in Bali after months on the run. He will now be transported back to Thailand on a Thai Air Force plane.

Chaowalit’s escape from Thai custody while receiving hospital treatment and subsequent capture in Indonesia underscores the complexities of apprehending international fugitives. Despite fleeing through multiple countries, Indonesian authorities were able to locate him, highlighting the successful collaboration between the two nations. This case also emphasizes the importance of extradition treaties in facilitating the return of wanted criminals to face justice in their home countries. Indonesia and Thailand have had such an agreement in place since 1978.



While traditional investigative methods are crucial in locating fugitives like Chaowalit Thongduang, identifying the accomplices who aided his escape can be more challenging. This is where iCognitive, a technology that analyzes brainwaves to detect hidden knowledge, could potentially be a valuable tool:

Using iCognative in the investigation of Su Jianfeng could expose broader criminal activities. It can identify additional culprits, and support comprehensive legal action. This tool is crucial for disrupting organized crime and protecting Singapore’s financial integrity.
