Patpong Go-Go Closed For 7 Days Following Underage Bust

Published

From what I hear this morning for the next seven days it will be doors locked and lights out at Pink Panther on Patpong Soi 2 after the popular go-go was busted for underage staff on Friday night.

It is too early in the day for the who, what, why and when as everyone with any info on the raid is still sleeping and I’d rather wait and get details of what went down confirmed rather than speculate.

What I do know is this… any bar owner not stringently checking the age of their staff in 2016 is walking a thin line as not only are there people actively visiting bars looking for underage staff with the intention of informing police and authorities, the government have a countrywide human trafficking campaign underway.

I will update the Pink Panther bust with details later today.

The body of 74-year-old Johannes Van Schaik was spotted by locals floating in the sea close to Walking Street around 7pm.

A missing persons report had already been filed with police by his worried wife earlier in the evening after he failed to return from an afternoon swim.

His wife Sukjai, 41, was inconsolable and was comforted by members of the public.

Booze Ban Thailand Thursday 1st October

There will be a ban on the sale of alcohol this Friday, 2nd October to mark Wan Awk Phansa – the end of Buddhist Lent.

The restriction on the sale of booze will run from 00.00 to 23.59 on Friday leaving some flexibility for venues to open early Thursday then throw open their doors again at midnight as many nightclubs and go-go bars choose to do.

Most pubs will remain open selling only non-alcoholic beverages as they do good business on the food side.

Wan Awk Phansa is one of the big five days on the holy calendar that sees the sale of alcohol banned. It was added to the list of alcohol-free days on religious holidays back in 2015.
