Phuket restaurateur strikes back at Patong mayor's family

Recommended Posts

"You want to crap on my yard, then I'm gonna crap on yours!"

More a case of, "If I'm going to lose my business, I'm taking yours down with me."

Unfortunately, it appears their anger is aimed at the current Mayor, and not the ex-Mayor, who was in power when these businesses were "allowed" to start.

Keesin was in power for so long, and pillaged Patong, and had a major influence on the downturn of the western tourist market for the tourism industry on Phuket.

He is the one who should be held to account for his corruption.

Correct, he and his son were running Patong into the ground for so long that when I saw the headline, I thought for sure this was about the "contract" and Pian Keesin. Doesn't Pian's Pisona group also have a dodgy hotel encroaching on the beach there?

Patong Bay Garden Resort. Always thought that their swim pool and beach bar were well encroaching the public beach.

Did she also hand over her "contract" for her restaurant that was signed by the local municipality? Seems no mention of that. I also wonder how much more dirty laundry will be aired, this could be very interesting and entertaining.

There's so much dirty laundry, you'll have to bring in more migrant workers just to handle the overflow!

... but does she have the kind of "close protection" that she is likely to need if it comes to court proceedings and she is called as a witness...?!

Dog fighting? Cat fighting? I say it's more like piranhas! When the there is food around huge masses of them get along perfectly. When the easy food starts to run thin, they look for the sick or injured....when the sick and injured prey are gone, they turn each other to eat.

I stayed at Patong Bay Resort 3-4 times before moving to Phuket permanently.

I understand one small bar on the beach in front of the resort has already gone, and there may be plans to remove parts of the upstairs bar and restaurant extensions made a few years ago.

I don't think the swimming pool encroaches on the beach, at least no more than the neighbouring, and upmarket, La Flora and Impiana Resorts. Unless you consider everything to the west of the beach road to be encroaching, I would think the main infrastructure of Patong Bay Resort would be safe.

I think it may be a bit beyond even the powers of the Army to raze everything in that section.

The prices in her bar / restaurant have been a rip off, too.

Was waiting already for the shit - throwing :) But I guess there's almost non business owner who can't participate.

And now the dog fighting has started - where is my popcorn.

This is just great, I mean this way the secrets come up and more action will be taken (hopefully). It could snowball into a clean Phuket.

Or it could mean that those big guns who have skeletons in their closet and who are supposed to clean up Phuket will think twice just in case they get 'uncovered' too. Hope you are right but IMO the only way forward is to have Non Phuket people take over the job of cleaning up and investigate every business including, and especially those owned by so called VIT's (replaced P {People) with T (T**d) the thai name for the 'derier' of the human's anatomy).

Yep I said it yesterday.

They will now fight and squabble over their democratic right to be corrupt.

After all's done in Phuket, let's hope the clean-up task-force moves on to Samui next ....

Spot on. So far, Samui has remained untouched. The same multi millionaire families are running the island as if nothing happened. The same mafia taxi rackets continue to charge 200 baht for 1 km. The same inept police roam the island looking for a payday. Still no traffic safety whatsoever, even though the island has the unique distinction of having the highest death rate on the roads per capita, as nearly anyplace on this planet, and certainly the highest in Thailand. The ambulance companies, and the hospitals love it, but is that a good reason to make it so? Samui needs so much work. The mayor has been trying, and to be fair, he has accomplished a lot. But, he is up against a lot of criminals, and a lot of entrenched interests. Some of which need to be tried, convicted, and sentence to long terms in prison, before any of this will be cleaned up. Not to mention the environmental catastrophe Samui has become. But, that is for another post.

Ahhh, yes, the Pisona Group.

I think "Pisona" is short for "PIS-ON-Anyone." smile.png
