Pattaya –

The Pattaya City Police raided a karaoke parlor in South Pattaya where 27 people have been arrested who were allegedly violating the current disease control order to control the spread of Covid -19.

The raid at 1:00 A.M. at a karaoke parlor in Soi South Pattaya 4 was led by Lieutenant Colonal Chainarong Chiain of the Pattaya City Police.

Twenty-seven people were arrested including the karaoke caretaker. According to police, the group was drinking alcohol, not socially distancing or wearing masks, and disobeying the Covid-19 Chonburi orders. No illegal drugs were found.

The raid followed police receiving complaints from local residents in the area that people were gathering and drinking alcohol during a mandatory Covid-19 curfew from 10:00 P.M. to 4:00 A.M. Additionally, entertainment venues have been legally closed for the past six months in Thailand due to Covid-19 rules.

All 27 people were taken to the Pattaya City Police Station to face charges of violating the Chonburi Disease Control order.
