A French expat wanted for beating his girlfriend was arrested and deported after immigration police discovered he had overstayed his visa by two years.
Medhi Karim Draoui, 32, was captured by Pattaya police and Chonburi Immigration Office April 20. He’d been wanted on a warrant after his ex-girlfriend brought assault charges against him.
Draoui said that he entered Thailand March 19, 2013 on a one-month passport visa exemption. He instead overstayed two years and three days.
