Police and the army have no right to get involved??? Where did you find that out. This is Thailand! Not the same laws and way of working like in your home country. I just supposed you took the information from there.
Here they have all the right in the world to get involved. They are the ones that have this part of work under their wings.

I know how things work after 17 years here in Thailand.  I am well aware of the powers that be and how they can get involved.Only pointing out business registration should be handled by local tessabon authorities.My home countries regulations/laws are irrelevant as is your post.

Ok! I have 16 years here myself. Still if you know how things work, how can you then write the police and the army have no right. It was you writing, not me. After that try with an explaination around what you really wrote. hmmmm?

That's funny...just had a look at booking.com and while Pause and Play do not have availability over the weekend, you can book rooms there for next Monday.

 

Operating as Pause, Pay and Play?

Get Real you are like dog with a bone aren't you ?Business registration and compliance of businesses are the responsibilities of the Tessaban.If you were starting a business thats where you would go and it would be they undertaking safety checks and all the other relevant requirements including registration.To make your day lets say "Army and police have no place to intervene" unless there is suspected criminal or terrorism activity Over and out

Has the hotel passed any safety compliance checks.That's what they mean by paperwork.Imagine there was a fire,the owner would be off like a shot.

We don't know. And I was never saying that the owner was right. But I was saying that a business owner shouldn't be made to lose revenue because of a backlog on the government side. [That doesn't justifying opening without proper safety checks]. The thing is that a hotel isn't set up overnight... there would be a good amount of time to process paperwork, schedule inspections, etc. But (if the owner is to be believed) it was a backlog on the government's side that prevented this from happening...

And what about the other 60 unlicensed, I guess they all dutifully filed there paper work as well lol. Don't be so gullible, one of the perks of not filing is NOT PAYING TAX!

Slavery was legal

Discriminating jews in Nazi Germany was legal

Torture in the US is legal

Killing people with drones is legal [in the US]

 

... Laws should always be questioned as they are rarely good for the people !!!

Perhaps nothing is fixed or improved in C M because the fees the local government should be getting are non existent.

The city is falling apart and nothing is done for the public infrastructure.

And the little public infrastructure left is cluttered up with parked motorbikes.

So, in your humble opinion the registration office also oversees that the law is followed. Sounds same like giving a 7-Eleven employee the right to say what Big C should sell. However you might be right, but the law says different. How do you get that together?

So if she was closed down, "albeit temporarily", where did the tenants of the 54 rooms wind up going...?  Were they simply told to get out...? Were they given a refund of 2,000 baht...?

You are 100% right.Poice and Army have no right to get involved unless its believed to be a terrorist or criminal related activity going on within the hotel.

Massive over kill.

Isn't there a Government Department that could have dealt with this in a discreet and proper manner.

If you were unlucky enought to be a guest what sort of message does it send out that Police/Army are required.

High or low season is irrelevant and I doubt,as a guest, you would ever return

 

 

 

 

The army was there to make sure the police did not take any kickbacks!

"2,000 baht a night"

 

I've never paid more than 240.  Except when I stay in BKK, then I pay 1400.  

 

But that's for a modern architecture hotel--floor to ceiling glass window, modern style bathroom with----get this---a shower stall so the whole bathroom floor doesn't get wet when showering.  

 

Does this hotel have that?  

 

555, no this venue is for "geniuses" who think they know everything about everything ?

240 baht? Is that for paying the unwashed beggar under the bridge for the right to sleep next to him in the dirt? And 1400 tops in BKK. You do not mind sacrificing anything thing for comfort do you. Its the same with you high faluting rich kids. Ever have a bed bug problem from these high class establishments? And having a glass screen around a shower? That is so hi-so and a amazing idea. Who would have thought of that?

Police and soldiers raid a hotel because it doesnt have the right paper work. Surely this is the job of the local government? How many people are now unemployed? How many tourists have booked this place and may not even get a refund? They have to book somewhere else or not visit at all? The low season would have been a better time to start closing hotels down imo.

Unfortunately the military and the dictator is in charge.  And the police are not under civilian control.  The internal power divide among agencies would probably make a good book in itself

And presumably not having to report that a posse of ISIS terrorists has just checked in.
