Nauru probe into Thai property allegations

The Government of Nauru is investigating allegations a former consul-general is involved in property leased for illegal purposes in Thailand.

The Government understands the allegations relate to the residence being used as a facility for illegal operations by foreigners, for forging passports.

It said it did not sanction or authorise the former consul-general to allegedly lease the residence.

Nauru said this is the subject of ongoing investigations in Bangkok and reassures the authorities that it stands ready to cooperate to assist the investigation.
