BANGKOK (NNT) - The Government’s Deputy Spokesperson, Traisulee Traisaranakul revealed today that Prime Minister Prayut Chan-O-Cha is concerned about people gambling during the football event “Euro 2020” and stressed the Police Department, the Ministry of a Digital Economy and Society and related authorities, must tackle violators such as online gambling websites and prosecute the agents.

 

Deputy Spokesperson Traisulee added however, that Euro 2020 aired on NBT2HD is expected to reduce Thai people’s tension caused by Covid-19. But getting involved in gambling related to the football tournament, can cause much more burden as it is illegal, and can cause a loss of property.

 

In addition, the PM also directed restaurants not to sell alcoholic drinks during a football match as it is against CCSA’s Covid-19 prevention measures.

Is he concerned that they aren't gambling enough? 

 

 

Thank goodness someone trotted along with 300 MM baht so the government TV station could broadcast the matches, which only serves to increase interest in gambling.

'PM concerned over illegal gambling' - he is not concerned at the soaring daily death toll caused by his Government's failure to buy enough vaccines for his people.  In fact, he's laughing all the way to the bank.

If the PM is concerned over illegal gambling, he should just legalize gambling in Thailand.

Make it legal. Tax it. Make money for the government.

 

Admit the obvious, everyone does it, whether you are concerned or not. Everyone, even those who are charged with enforcing the no gambling laws...

No wonder the vaccination program is falling into disarray attending to petty issues which should be purviewed by the Interior Minister. By the way, where the hell is Interior Minister Anupong in this covid crisis. I have not even heard a whimper from him.

He's miffed that the 300 million baht to get the Euros on state TV came from the uncle of his political rival.

 

Concerned about football gambling? For years there's been a Thai site right out in the open, on Facebook and on TVs in nightclubs, complete with illegal streams for you to watch as you place your bets.

I dont know how the PM sleeps at night with so many concerns.  This is, of course, the highest priority for the moral integrity of Thailand to remain intact.  Lottery ticket anyone?  🤔 (its not gambling if someone you know makes money)

Probably one cannot take it face value as it is probably stated to have an opposite effect. Like don't gamble coming from him will be met with disdain and then they will gamble more, and then when the authorities move in and bust all of the domestic gambling operations of preselected choice then there will be more baht to confiscate for pocket lining and applying to the Gov coffers.

Fiddling while Bangkok burns. Leant to focus Prayut....switching attention from Covid to a minor irritant of gambling is an idiotic thing to do.

they always seem to focus on the usual suspects. Drugs, gambling, prostitution, alcohol sales, sex toys.

 

Anyone notice a theme here??

 

The government doesn't want the general public to be having any kind of fun whatsoever.

 

Proper party poopers these lot!

Definitely has his "concerned priorities" in order.  Never mind a your inept ministers and the bungled vaccine rollout.
