Yesterday, A nightclub was raided early in the morning by the police for the allegedly illegal sale of alcoholic beverages and violating the Chonburi law to fight infectious diseases.

Pattaya City Police Station officers arrived at ‘Babylon Pattaya’, located on Third Road in the centre of the city, at 1:00 AM. The raid came after the guard of the police station on Pattaya Beach Road received telephone complaints from a concerned citizen reporting that the company was illegally selling alcoholic beverages, in violation of the Chonburi Communicable Disease Control Act. The concerned citizen was reportedly concerned about the spread of Covid19 in this location.

Just hours before, thousands of crowds had gathered on the nearby beach for the Pattaya Fireworks Festival, as it turned out, this concerned citizen was not so concerned.

In addition, the location is said to have violated several other current rules, including rules banning nightlife and entertainment venues from opening, current hours of operation, and social distancing rules.

On arrival, the guests present were understood to be drinking alcohol, when they saw the Thai police, the guests tried to escape the long arm of the police in a panic. Before the raid, however, the police had surrounded the catering business so that there could be no escape. Police opened an investigation and reportedly discovered that alcoholic beverages were contained in plastic bottles and that the receipts were written as “fruit juice” rather than the alcoholic beverage to fool the officers, who stated that this obvious attempt did not work.

Colonel Methawit Praditphon, Superintendent of Pattaya Police, has detained an alleged manager, whose name was not disclosed, for further legal proceedings. Police did not specifically specify whether customers were fined or arrested during the raid.

A ban on the sale of alcohol in restaurants and closure of bars and entertainment venues has been in effect in Pattaya since April 10 this year, almost eight months, and authorities say the rule is unlikely to be lifted until at least mid-January of this year. next year. The ban has sparked widespread petitions and pleas from business owners for the ban to be lifted, as well as dozens of discussions and discussions on social media in both Thai and English.
