Pattaya police chief warns operators to tone it down in October - or else!

 

Walking-Street.jpg

 

Amid growing confusion about what is acceptable behavior during the period of the Royal Funeral observation a letter has been issued to bar owners in Pattaya.
 
It comes from the chief of police at the resort and while it is still open to interpretation it leaves little doubt about what will happy if, in the eyes of the force, their edict is broken.
 
Apichai Krobpetch said in the letter addressed to all entertainment operators that his requests were in line with government policy for the observance of protocols during the period of the Royal Funeral from October 1 to 31st.
 
He said that music (dontree) or entertainment/amusement (mahorasop) must stop "in the open" (nai thee long).
 
(Thaivisa has included transliteration of the terms used in brackets so that individuals can come to their own understanding of what is meant).
 
This edict would seem to suggest that so long as matters were kept quiet behind closed doors then nothing would be said. 
 
But in the chief's final sentence there was no doubt. 
 
He said that should operators contravene what was acceptable they would be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

I presume he means 'happen'?  Surely this applies to all laws in Thailand where the police decide if they can invent an excuse for extracting a 'fine'?

I suppose at least we can be grateful[i do not live in Pattaya}, that the original idea of closing all bars everywhere and banning alcohol  sales for the month have been discarded,however it may be that during the week of the late Kings cremation,that this could be adopted.

I'm happy I read this. I had been planning on visiting Pattaya that week, but having seen that Pattaya will probably be as quiet as Chiang Mai I'll just stay up here.

There is a law in place that covers this situation?

I seriously doubt that but then most of the bars are breaking a heap of other laws so they will just do you for that I guess...

No, probably no law is in place.

Just the edict of the police, acting as police, prosecutors, jurors and executioner's.

But of course, sane operators have a good idea what must be done.

Exactly Hansnl,......Common sense..........keep the music low, do not have glaring neon signs or too many flashy lights, observe opening times, it is hardly rocket science. If you do not provoke the bull it is not likely to charge at you....
