Some records of his activity;

1 April 1995
The three dozen aliens from Burma arrested for illegal entry butsuspected of being members of minority rebel groups were fined 2,000 baht each yesterday and will be sent back across the border within a few days, according to a district court officer.  The aliens identified by police as Kachins, Karens, and Thai Yai appeared at the district court after one night detention at the Phu Phing Police Station.
They will be sent back home through the same channels where they entered Thailand_ Mae Sot and Mae Hong Son provinces_in accordance with the immigration law, but there are no measures to prevent them
returning to Thailand, he said. The group was reportedly invited to attend a twelve-day training course at Chaing Mai Garden Hotel co-organised by Mr Sithipong Kalayanee and three Filipino lecturers. They denied any political aim was involved.
"This was the first training course called Development Manager Programme that aims to help them develop agriculture and health care," Mr Sithipong said.
The authorities suspected the 36 aliens had an ulterior motive of organising minority group resistance to Rangoon and did not want Thailand to be accused of helping them.
Mr Sithipong said he tried to contact concerned organisations to solve the problem when he learned that the people had entered the country illegally. But the immigration police arrested them before
the problem could be solved. (BP)
