Provincial officers released the five-year closure order of “Phaya Yo” and “Ekamai 487” entertainment venues located in the parking area of a Big C Department Store in Mueang district on Thursday, September 1st, after being found that the places did not abide by public orders and allowed others to carry firearms into the venues, causing several deaths and injuries.
