Bangkok vows crackdown on nightspots

BANGKOK: -- Senior Bangkok officials last night led a raid on eight popular city nightspots, and vowed to launch a strict crackdown on entertainment venues in the capital.

The raid, headed by Bangkok City Clerk Khun Ying Nathanon Thavisin, follows a directive from Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra ordering the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) to ensure that entertainment venues did not become places of vice for young people.

Together with officials from the police child protection unit, the permanent secretary for the BMA inspected eight entertainment venues in Soi Thong Lo.

However, urine testing on over 100 revellers, including popular actors, failed to find any evidence of substance misuse, and the venues appeared to be correctly licensed.

Nonetheless, Khun Ying Nathanon said that she had ordered district officials across the capital to take strict measures to ensure that entertainment venues complied with legislation, and warned that immediate legal action would be taken against violators.

She also expressed concern over the health of people visiting the capital's nightspots, describing them as smoky and with decibel levels which could lead to hearing problems.

It looks as though no important police or politicians own businesses on Thong Lo! I'll belive their really interested in morality when they start busting the nightclubs at RCA or on Ratchadapisek where the teenage Thai's really hang out.

Of course that won't happen as long as Mrs. Taksin and friends continue to own a piece of the action there! This morality crusade doesn't have anything to do with morality at all. It's all about businesses trying to wipe out the competition.

Came across this message on another forum:

Up until about 1 hour and 32 minutes ago I would have said don't worry about it, I have been here for 15 years and never had to submit to a urine test or a passport check.

Well, that changed tonight.

Radio City, Patpong. 1:00 am, closing time tonight.

Police every where, and every customer had to pee in a cup to leave. From my understanding, (and I watched until about 02:00) no one tested positive.

This country has gone downhilll quickly and I bet every single one of the tourist in the place will never come back to Thailand again in their life and they will tell everyone that they know also not to come to this country.
