Pattaya – Police Crack Down On Prostitutes On Streets


The police of Pattaya city police station, Chonburi province, leaded by Pol.Capt. Netithorn Rattanasuchanan (Deputy Inspector of Pattaya city police station, Chonburi province) and forces of police and volunteer police teams and over 20 officers of the special detachment of Chonburi Provincial Police Station (both in uniform and plainclothes ) together suppressed and arrested groups of woman and lady boy prostitutes that loitered to offer foreign tourists sexual services on Pattaya beach and Walking Street.

Pol.Col. Supphathee Boonkhrong (Deputy Commander of Chonburi provincial police station, Acting Superintendent of Pattaya city police station) emphasized on suppressing and arresting such offenders in order to improve the image of Pattaya city and to prevent crimes that may be committed by the groups of woman and lady boy prostitutes.

During the sweep the police arrested over 60 defendants including females and lady boy prostitutes and also could arrest over 10 females from Madagascan. The police detained all the defendants and sent them to Pattaya city police station in order to check their criminal history and to record their details before prosecuting them in the allegation of pestering other people for sexual services in a public area. They were all fined around 500 THB ($15.38 USD) before letting them go.


personal thought:

For the last few years, the fine was 100 THB. At 500 THB it might (???) be more effective, but I doubt it.
