After seven times on the run, criminal criminal Chaowalit Thongduang, alias” Sia Paeng Nanod,” has been detained in Indonesia. He allegedly escaped from a doctor in Nakhon Si Thammarat last October and later engaged in a shootout with police.

Justice Minister Tawee Sodsong gave a lecture to Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin at Government House, which on Thursday confirmed the imprisonment.

The arrest came after the Royal Thai Police, fairness and international politics departments sought assistance from Indonesian government, said Mr Srettha. No additional details were immediately accessible.

Chaowalit, 37, was facing a number of other legal costs, including murder and possession of a gun. He was also serving occasion for attempted murder. He escaped from Maharaj Nakhon Si Thammarat Hospital on October 22 last year after being taken that for medical treatment.

On November 8, authorities tracked him to a shelter in Trang’s Banthad rock collection. After a fight, he retreated into the hilly terrain that encircles the provinces of Phatthalung, Trang, and Satun.

Despite a massive hunt, the criminal managed to evade record. Eventually, it was reported that he reportedly left Thailand on a motorboat from Satun.

Chaowalit was on the move when he released a number of films in which he claimed were treated unfairly.

Despite the involvement of various other suspects, he claimed to be the only one who received a sentence for his crimes. He even claimed that the pending murder case’s appeal for parole had not been handled pretty.

His extensive criminal history was pointed out by the Ministry of Justice, which rejected the allegations.

Chaowalit was given a life sentence for attempted death on December 25 in proceedings. The incident occurred on September 9, 2019, at a cafe in the Muang city of Phatthalung.

He was accused of conspiring with four people to try to kill a jury assistant. Each of the five was given living sentences.
