Four Thai women and four foreign men drinking at an outdoor party in Krabi on Wednesday (April 15) got a nasty shock when police arrived to arrest them.

 

Officers from Ao Nang police station were called to investigate reports of a public gathering at a house in the beachside subdistrict. They arrived at the scene to find the party in full swing, with eight people swigging alcohol outside a house, in flagrant violation of Krabi’s Emergency Decree lockdown to deal with the Covid-19 pandemic.

 

The group comprised four Thai women aged 28-45 and four Scandinavian men – Norwegian nationals aged 62 and 63, and Swedes aged 65 and 74. Police found them with assorted alcoholic beverages, soda water, carbonated drinks and a bucket of ice.

 

The group were charged with violating the Emergency Decree on Public Administration BE2548, which prohibits public assembly or any act that disturbs public peace and order.

Maybe that bucket of ice made the situation worse for them. The BiB may have thought they were going to start a songkran party...You never know .....

Unlike the Thai people living next to me that have different people over every night BBQing and drinking.  Making noise talking.  Guess they don't have a bucket of ice.  So it's OK.

Pretty much the same here.

The neighbours have guests every day and sit outside drinking wine. Further along the road, the locals sit outside drinking beers and eating together.

What alcohol ban? What "social gathering"?

Why is this a "public gathering"?

A few friends together.

Same as many other countries - stay home - or at least dont get together in group. Group can under current situation be any number from 2 people and up.

That is not allowed currently, remember: social distance.

 

Alcohol ban country wide.

 

Curfew from 2200.

 

This is not normal times.

This is not the time to ask why, when most natives stay at home after dark. We caucasians aren't special, and we are not in our country of birth.

Easier to just do what we are told, by the authorities.

The sale of alcohol is banned. No mention of consumption.

I agree with you when you say "most", because not all do and I agree we should follow the rules. 

We are 10 people sharing our building, and are members of the same family. We sit in the garden and talk together sometimes for 4 or 5 minutes in groups of anything from 4 to 8 people (no alcohol as I am the only one who likes a glass of wine sometimes). Is that a "public gathering"?

 

I am not condoning these people. They should have more common sense and for all I care they can be locked up for 6 months.

sounds like a private residence but they are trying to word it as outside - so a public place - very questionable

Picture: Naew Na

 

The Ao Nang police chief Pol Col Apichart Jinapen sent in his men after he got a tip that a group of foreigners and Thai women were enjoying themselves in the garden of a house having a drinks party. 

 

Plenty of evidence in the form of beer and spirits and mixers was discovered. 

 

Eight people were taken in to face charges of contravening the emergency decree rules on congregating. 

 

Naew Na said there were five Thai women and three foreigners. They then listed the names of four Thai women and four Scandinavians. 

 

The Thai women were aged 28,39, and two of 45. The foreigners were Norwegians aged 62 and 63 and Swedes aged 65 and 74.

Everything that is clearly stated must make you aware. Social distancing, No gathering. Due to the alcohol ban, definitely no gathering for drinking parties.

 

That´s how I understand it, but I might be wrong.

Sure, it must have been a 4 bedroom house and each lady was a partner to each man with his own room.  So it was a family just enjoying themselves....

The only way I could make this (sort of) work was if one of the Thai women was a Scandinavian citizen. 😜
