Coordinated raids on two addresses in Bangkok yesterday resulted in six arrests and the seizure of 2 million baht's worth of foreign liquor and wine. 

 

The first raid was a house used as a distribution depot in Ram Intra Soi 61, sub soi 8. Five men and women aged between 24 and 42 were arrested. 

 

A total of 889 bottles of non-tax paid foreign liquor and 362 bottles of wine were seized. 

 

Meanwhile a search warrant was served on a shop in the Pradiphat area where a 53 year old woman was arrested and 347 bottles of Black and Red Label whisky were seized. 

 

The suspects had advertised cheap foreign alcohol for sale on Facebook and subsequently on a Line group. 

 

They had not paid tax on the alcohol. 

 

They face a month in jail and fines of between 5 and ten times the value of the tax that was avoided.

Immoral taxes on imported goods, where it doesn't make any sense.

Local brews, wine and liquor just cannot compete with imports, so no damage to local business.

Should they not be opening an investigation how so many bottles got into the country? Who is the bigger criminal? Someone selling or government official who took a bribe and allowed it in 

It's only a pickup trucks worth of booze.
