Joining the delegation as enforcement were Royal Thai Navy personnel and officers from the Karon Police, the Land Reform Office, the Royal Forest Department as well as Karon Kamnan Winai Chidchiew.

I suppose they were selling there with permission from the 'owner'. Is his beach club there legal after the warnings issued?

Churchill's famous wartime speech "...we will fight them on the beaches..." is interpreted slightly differently by the Thai military!

I don't think there is a club on Freedom Beach, although there has been a lot of crime (including murder), connected to the land above the beach. Are you thinking of the "connected" owner at Paradise Beach or perhaps the thugs with their clubhouse at Nui Beach?

Don't know what it is, but there is something. Or for sure used to be something, https://www.thephuketnews.com/nui-and-freedom-beach-buildings-to-be-demolished-within-two-months-71558.php. Nui Beach is really busy since 6 months or so, seems their clubhouse is attracting quite a few punters now. Should be demolished of course, see same article.

They should change the name in:

"Not So Freedom Beach"
