Poisoned chalice being the chief of police there if they're gonna get transferred every time prostitution is found...

The other bars and gogos are not stupid enough to allow sex to take place on the premises.  As long as they operate within the terms of their licence, under the Entertainment Places Act, they are not breaking the law.

What law does Lolita's operate under?  I only went in there to look at the big lizard/crocodile thing.   And does that bar with the yellow line train street painters?

you do not understand Thailand does not have prostitution so they can not legalize it

Be careful what you wish for!  The current situation where paying for sex itself is not illegal, and girls/boys can be barfined from bars for whatever purpose you desire, is probably preferable to the government controlling the girls!  Prostitution in various forms is part of Thai culture (concubines anyone?) but it's "discreet".  The law refers to "promiscuous" acts of prostitution, i.e. in your face prostitution such as soliciting in public and brothels, and obviously underage or trafficked prostitutes are something to be clamped down on.  Gogos, bars and massage places that stay within the rules should be fine.

The bar where my x worked the mamma san sold the girls hard drugs and took the payment out of their wages.  It's a nasty business however you look at it.

Can not help but feel sorry for the owners who invested a lot of money and now lost it all overnight

I don´t feel sorry for an owner who allows underage prostitutes in his bar.

At that rate, all bars will close and no police left!

Without the bars a substantial part of their income goes. Nobody would want the job.

"Channel 7 reported yesterday that the Chonburi police chief Pol Maj-Gen Nanthachart Suphamongkhon had axed the acting head of the Pattaya police Pol Col Pongphan Wongmaneethet and four of his deputies.

The media did not say what was their immediate fate but they said that the transfer was for allowing prostitution to go on in Pattaya."

 

To me "axed" and "transfer" are not at all the same!

 

Far too often these rogue policemen are "transferred to inactive posts".

 

Why don't they just have their contracts terminated or, as we say in the UK, "sacked" (after due and diligent investigation of course!) 

 

However, good to see that one of the Big Wigs has been removed as well - from what I read he was totally inept at his job, and "spoiled the image of Pattaya"!

How would you check?  How would you identify her big sisters ID card?  Serious question.  Not kidding.  You made a statement - lets see if you could identify an lady who was 17 and 364 days as opposed to one who was 18.

There's never a dull moment here is there? Still, the cops shouldn't have been so dumb as to parade through Walking street and say there was no evidence of prostitution, when everyone knows it is going on everywhere. Closing a bar for 5 years for " damaging the image of tourism in Pattaya and Thailand ", is a laugh too. Rest of the soi and most of town are doing exactly the same. Problem is of course, if they did really stamp it out, there would be even less people in town and Soi 6 would be renamed Soi Ghost Town.

..they were walking 4 abreast..how could you not trip over one.

people who traffic underage girls don't invoke my sympathy at all and I don't care if the world is doing it...

A good chance the owner did not know about it. The girls often use false or another's ID.

So we can expect another 1,000bars to be shut down and the owners deported in the next month the Pattaya economy will be zero .

They had an underage girl on the premises. That is enough to close the bar indefinitely. The owners only got deported, even though they claim to have evidence of prostitution in the bar, they were lucky it didn't end up in jail. 

 

The rules are simple, no short time rooms on premises, bars can not encourage girls to go with customers (yes we know why the girls work there) and what goes on in the "room" is between a tourist and a girl. 

 

They follow these rules, no bars will be shutdown unless they screw up themselves.
