Pattaya Police Raid Star Agogo & Arrest 2 Nude Bubble Bath Girls
ThaiMBC News reports that Thai police appear to be making good on promises to clean up Pattaya, the so-called sex capital of the world, with more late-night raids of the city’s nightclubs and illegal brothels.
Photos have emerged of a bloodied British tourist lying on the side of the road after reportedly brawling with at least one sex worker amid a police raid at the Star Agogo club in Pattaya’s red light district on Saturday. Witnesses said the drunk man, who was aged in his 60s, had been kicked out of the venue.
During the raid on the club police arrested two naked dancers — who were in the midst of a bubble bath performance — on suspicion of committing indecent acts in public. Punters were ordered to leave as the venue was shut down.
Officially, prostitution is illegal and fully-nude entertainment is banned. Human rights groups have also raised alarms about exploitation and human trafficking in Thailand’s sex industry, but authorities have long turned a blind eye to these dark deeds, fuelling Pattaya’s reputation for lawlessness.
Kobkarn Wattanavrangkul vowed to shut down Pattaya’s problematic sex industry, which is famous for it’s ladyboys, go-go dancers and ping-pong shows.
