The 28 Thai and foreign participants at a sex swingers party raided in Pattaya were mostly let go.

 

One Filipino was found to be on drugs and one person was overstaying their visa but the others had their records taken and were released without charge.

 

Earlier videos had shown tourist, immigration and local police and soldiers under the direction of Banglamung district chief Naris Niramaiwong and Pattaya station chief Apichai Krobpetch raiding the property on Pratumnak Hill.

 

Embarrassed participants were rounded up covered in towels and sheets to protect their identities. Condoms and lubricants were shown.

 

Participants were from the US, Canada, Ukraine, Pakistan, Singapore, the Philippines, China, Malaysia, Cambodia and Thailand reported Sanook yesterday.

 

Owner 53 year old Serngchai from China is facing charges of operating a hotel without a licence and running a lewd event for profit.

 

Three staff are being charged as accessories.

 

The hotel owner can do jail time of up to a year and be fined 20,000 baht. But he faces shelling out 18 million baht which is 10,000 a day for every day of the five years he has been in operation.

The fine seems to be a tad disproportianate; it should certainly deter others. If anyone has their pre-paid orgy suddenly cancelled please let us know.

If it is with an entrance fee, then anything is possible.

If there is no fee, just the rent of hotel room(s), there is nothing to gain, so no problem.

Why has it taken the authorities 5 years to find out this place has no licences? If the Government is short of revenue why doesn't it send people round all the businesses operating in a location to check on their licenses. When they find businesses operating without licenses they will rake in a fortune on unpaid license fees! :wink:

Probably because getting a license takes a shitload of hoops to jump through, bribing of officials, and a waiting list of possibly years.

 

Wasn't it in the news like a year ago that Phuket had thousands of unlicensed hotels and when they started digging deeper it appeared there were thousands on the waiting list to receive a license? Who wants to buy or build a hotel and wait for 5 years till you get your license? Time is money.

Considering the flip side of that argument about shitloads of hoops to jump through, I can think of at least one Chinese gentleman looking at an 18 million baht payout who likely wished he hadn't made the critical decision not to pursue the licence 5 years ago.

How can we operate an hotel 5 years without licence ? :smile:

Nobody have checked this hotel for 5 years... Or some got their brown enveloppe every month...
