Border checkpoints have been ordered to watch for a Lao woman believed to be part of an international wildlife smuggling syndicate, the chief of the Natural Resources and Environmental Crime Suppression Division said on Thursday. 

Norasak Hemnithi told the ''Inside Thailand'' radio talk show broadcast on FM97 that it is believed Loy Chanthawongsa, who lives in Laos, had been shown by immigration records to have frequently entered Thailand through northeastern provinces.
