Thai Rath reported that a raiding party made up of Bo Phut police, immigration and local officials went to a foreign owned beachside bar and restaurant that was serving alcohol and allowing sit down customers on Sunday evening. 

 

This was in contravention of the emergency decree in place to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. 

 

Raided was the La Bohemia in Moo 3, Maret sub-district. 

 

A French national named as Quentin T. identified himself as the owner. 

 

He was among 22 Thai and foreign men and women who were drinking and listening to music.

 

They were all taken in to face charges at the local Bo Phut police station.

since restaurants are allowed to open this was all about drinking alcohol 

 

from the picture - if they were observing distancing looks like they were forced into a tight group by police

actually if it's a business registered as a bar then they were breaking the laws from the start as bars are not allowed to open as yet, restaurants are but bars are not, secondly they were selling alcohol which is forbidden anyway ....  so the french man is in deep sh_it

It's probably at least gonna cost him lotsa money, cops, lawyers etc.

If you didn't like Buddha Days, we've now had 6 or 7 weeks of them in a row!😋

The 2nd picture in the original article describes the situation there better. There is nothing to add anymore. If the police doesn't punish them accordingly then better forget the law.

Yes, they will severely punish the foreigners, the Thais maybe a B500 baht fine and a wai and a further B250 if they were not wearing a motorbike helmet.

selling alcohol from a business registered as bar is not allowed and selling alcohol from a restaurant and consuming it on site is not permitted.

Exactamundo.

Fines are proportionate to means. (Based on the assumption that falang are rich!?).

Right. A Thai with a Mercedes pays less than a foreigner with a scooter.

There was a similar report about Pussycat bar in Pattaya in TVF recently. 5 Thais 3 farangs arrested in identical circumstances. All but the owner were fined 2k baht. Thais and farangs.

No, but it does in the UK.

Then again, there's a perception with many Thais that farang are wealthier, which us falang know is not the case. Also, unlike in the west, farang do not enjoy equality with the natives.

 

(It's a shame we can't play the race-card in Thailand, as also happens in the west, what I call inverted-racism).

A Thai with a Mercedes, a good one!, pays nothing at all!!!  :1zgarz5:
