Pattaya – Police arrest, fine and set free ‘gaggle’ of Beach Road prostitutes

Via: Pattaya Mail

Police once again showed their intent to rid Beach Road of prostitutes by rounding up yet another 59 women and ladyboys before allowing them to return to the “coconut bar” after paying small fines.

 The latest sweep came around 2 a.m. Jan. 21 with uniformed officers and volunteers hauling in 45 suspected working girls and 14 transvestites to the Pattaya Police Station. All were released after fines that usually run 200 baht (oh yeah; $6.45USD, that’ll work).

Police claim tourists continually complain about prostitutes and drug use along the beach, but, to date, the Pattaya police force has done nothing to permanently address those concerns.

  1. I would guess it has been a long time since these girls have had their legs crossed for anything.

  2. 1. You might be right, but I would suggest many visitors can’t keep it ‘zipped’.

    2. I suggest the life of young Thai person, can be very very difficult.

    3. In Chiang Mai, I belive the fine for parking a motorbike illegally is 400baht. A 200 baht fine is going to stop the problem.

    thanks for you comment,
    jon
