Should we assume the local police was not aware about this business? 555

Should be asking, "why did it take so many years for the cops to act"

Surprize, surprize. A few years ago, I've heard an interesting chat between a foreigner and a Reggae bar owner on Ko Samet.

 

   The foreigner was very worried that an undercover cop would get wind of his little purchase.

 

   The Thai then started laughing and said to him that all the drug business is done by them.

 

   Something must have gone wrong here.

"A tip-off to police led officers to raid the “Barnana bar” on Phi Phi Island on March 1..."

 

Even if they weren't closed down by present regulations, being closed wouldn't mitigate the offences.
