Police plan to give Pisit Tantiwattanakul, director of the All IVF clinic, until Friday to turn himself in to hear surrogacy case charges against him, chief of the Metropolitan Police Bureau's (MPB) Division 5 Pol Maj Gen Suebsak Pansura has said. 

The Japanese man who apparently has fathered at least nine babies carried by surrogate mothers is seen in a photo taken when he passed through immigration (left) and in a copy of his passport. Mr Shigeta has allegedly claimed he wanted to father 1,000 babies by surrogacy.

Police are expected to summon Dr Pisit Monday following a petition lodged by the Department of Health Service Support that he broke the law governing healthcare establishments in providing surrogacy services at his clinic.
