The 26 - 18 women and 8 men all from Cambodia - were arrested at The Regent Massage on Petchtrakun Road after a tip off that non-Thais were taking Thai jobs. 

So the owner of the establishment will be appearing in court then ?

Note to the Thai police farce: Careful, don't round them all up before the election. If there's any kind of trouble come election day, you'll still need some foreigners left to blame it on.

Go down to the massage shops on 2nd Road between soi6 and soi4 and they will find 10 times the number of Cambodians.

None of which will be impacting the election.

I just can't join the dots. How does arresting Cambodian massage workers, working illegally in Pattaya calm (what) election trouble?

EDIT: my mistake, i thought they were talking about erection trouble. Though it does look like the average voter will be stiffed by the election rules

 

A few years back I was riding down 2nd Road in a car with two Thai girls. I asked why all the bars were closed. One said, "Because National Erection Day". She was quite embarrassed when the other girl explained why I was laughing.

I had no idea Cambodian massage workers had a reputation for disrupting national elections (in neighbouring countries). 

 

I would LOVE to hear the logic behind the idea that this will make the elections run smoothly on Sunday. I know I'm not an idiot, and absolutely nothing comes to mind that makes sense as to how these 26 illegal aliens of the thousands that certainly still exist in Thailand will make any difference to the voting process.

He said it was part of measures to ensure peace and calm at the election

I would have thought the opposite - they could have provided some stress relief.

Quite likely, particularly if Cambodian!

It's probably becoming a similar situation like we regularly see when taxi drivers experience a bit of competition. Maybe they don't like the fact that generally speaking you will find that Cambodian's working in such jobs will be far more conscientious, polite and efficient than themselves.

If Thai's were so good at everything, why this constant fear of foreign workers?

Bit like Brexit in the UK ....

Lt-Col Piyapong Ensarn, chief of the Pattaya tourist police division, said he had worked with immigration on the bust. 

Meanwhile the busty Cambodian in the shop next door was working on me to ward off my own election trouble.
