Oh so now it was in Florida and Vietnam 😂😂😂😂

Not now back then.  Now I'm too old for all the work.  Running a bar is hard work.  Cops on the take, sometimes different jurisdictions (Pattaya has at least 3 that need to be paid), girls very difficult to work with, always the underage thing if its not the girls trying to get their little sister a job it's the bar next door planting underage women on your staff.  And in Vietnam had to pay off the Army and these little fellows in black pajamas kept blowing up my toilets and showers.  Not easy work.

Men just go to Pattaya for the culture.  

Yes. The 7 Elevens on Walking Street all sell yoghurt.

I in now way condone the underage staff thing, however, I would be interested to know how long that particular person was a member of staff.

Pattaya, so we've been told, is the most prized posting in Thailand for police officers. The "remuneration" is very high. So I wouldn't expect any more bars to close. One doesn't cut off one's nose to spite one's face.

Pattaya cops, Bangkok cops, Sattahip navy cops, everybody is in on the action when you own a bar in Pattaya.

We can now sleep better at night knowing Pattaya is prostitution-free.

Channel 7 said that the foreign owners of Coming Bar in Soi 6 would all be deported and blacklisted from entering Thailand. 

 

In earlier reports about the raid in which a 17 year old sex worker was found it was stated that the owners were a consortium of Taiwanese, Chinese and Thai nationals.

The Thai nationals have been sent to a new posting in soi 7.

Saw something similar to this in Penang once: a "tech mall" where every other shop sold pirated DVDs.  One shop was shut down, with a nasty notice posted on the locked door "By Order Of the King" etc.  Talk about absurd.

Oh the outrage, the shock... the total and utter farce of this game being played....  the pretense and outright hypocrisy, the faux-conscience...  

 

... but the game must be played... someone else in line now get's their cut.

well they have to do something when the underage thing pops up on international radar.

Yes they do but in the international setting what may be underage in this instance according to Thai law ( I believe the young lady was only 17),  does not mean it is underage in many other countries where they are deemed adult at 16 years of age, so the international community really will not be interested in this particular case.  However where there any girls found to be under the age of 16 then that is a whole different ball game and would be frowned on in most other countries.

Bang Lamung district chief Amnat Charoensri said that he had ordered the bar shut for five years and that the case had damaged the image of a tourist town (Pattaya) and the image of the country.

 

Why is it, I'd like to know, that in the wake of these supposed 5 year closure orders, we NEVER hear any followup of what actually happens with these places???

 

I think I can almost guarantee, that the space held by this bar is NOT going to sit vacant for the next 5 years. Probably will reopen as another bar in the not too distant future, probably with a new name and with new tenants/lessees. And the Thai owner of the (land) property will probably continue making money off prostitution, et al...
