A number of pubs in Bangkok’s Sukhumvit area, which were closed down by the police for operating without a license and/or for violating COVID-19 safety measures between November 2019 and April last year, have been found to be still operating illegally, according to an on-the-spot investigation by Thai PBS reporters.

 

For instance, a pub located at the mouth of Sukhumvit Soi 22 in Klong Toey district was closed in November 2019, after Thonglor police found that it did not have a permit to sell liquor and did not have a pub license. After a long closure during the COVID-19 pandemic, it reopened again as the situation improved, but was closed again by the police.

 

Another pub, located in Soi Thonglor 13, was closed after Thonglor police searched the venue on April 1st last year and was discovered not to have an operating license and was failing to comply with safety measures, with a lack of social distancing and staff not wearing face masks. The venue features live music and dance performances. Another 60-day closure order was issued after the venue has failed to meet the legal requirements.

Here... I corrected it... 

 

'A number of pubs in Bangkok’s Sukhumvit area, which were extorted by the police for operating without a license and/or for violating COVID-19 safety measures between November 2019 and April last year, have been operating under the protection of the police for healthy bribe... '

 

EVERYONE knows that any entertainment venue operates only with the permission of the police - they all want their cut. 

 

Even when the specific venue is fully legally, fully licensed etc the police will still want their cut. 

If the don’t get their cut they simply raid the place repeatedly until customers stop going...  

Police and the venue owners (management) know the police can kill a place off in weeks. 

 

Thus, there is no point in fully licensing these places... they get a restaurant licence, serve a bit of food and thats sufficient pretence for the police to turn a blind eye... for a fee... 

 

The best way to deal with any of this is to have a ranking police officer as a partner, they can enter negotiation with the local station chief to bring the cost of the monthly ‘bonus’ down.
