Bangkok – Czech duo (Hans, und Franz) wanted for robbery nabbed

Via: The Nation

Two Czech nationals were arrested in Chon Buri’s Sri Racha district  for alledgedly stealing Euro 3 million (Bt 129 million) from a security agency’s armoured van two years ago.

Josef ‘Hans’ Blazek, 32, und Rodolf ‘Franz’ Tesarek, 35, were apprehended at a shopping mall for illegally entering Thailand from Laos, immigration police said. The duo were initially charged with illegal entry and overstaying their visa, pending possible handover to Czech police.

Both suspects had been sentenced to 12 years in jail by a Czech court, before they jumped bail and fled. They arrived in Laos last August, and entered Thailand on May 13.

Both men were known for their victory in a European strength competition and were seeking to practise Muay Thai in a number of local gyms before they were arrested.

According to an online Czech newspaper, the Czech Republic and Thailand do not have an extradition treaty. This is why the extradition of the two men would have to be based on a mutual ad hoc agreement, Czech Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Tereza Paleckova said.

“The Czech Republic would have to pledge that it would extradite a detained [Thai] person to Thailand in a similar case,” she said.

Saturday Night Live –

“I am Hans.” “Und I am Franz.” “Und ve just vant to pump… (clap) …YOU UP!”

In the sketch, Carvey and Nealon play a pair of muscle-bound Austrian jocks who mimicked/spoofed Arnold Schwarzenegger by using padding for fake muscles, drab gray sweatsuits, weight belts, and Austrian accents. The background of the set includes several life-sized cutouts of Schwarzenegger during his competition years and the sketch’s introduction music featured mock Austrian “yodeling”.
