Pattaya, November 24, 2010 [Pattaya Daily News]: On November 24, at Pattaya City Hall, officials held a meeting to discuss the operating hours of entertainment businesses following a claim by the Office Of Public Sector Anti-Corruption Commission [PACC] that it had received a significant number of complaints from concerned people in the city. Present at the meeting were Pattaya City Mayor, Mr. Itthiphol Khunpluem, the president of Entertainer in Pattaya, Mr. Banyat Siritanyong, Pattaya administrative assistant, Mr. Soonthorn Rattanawaraha and Colonel Nunthawut Suwanla-ong (Pattaya Police Superintendent).

The meeting was told that the high level of corruption in the city was of grave concern, especially the negative impact it has on the tourist industry. Complaints had been presented to successive administrations, but the problems still remained.

Also under discussion were three rules to be implemented throughout the city’s entertainment areas –  no admission to those under age 18, a stricter control on the use of drugs, and a ban on the possession of weapons. These issues needed to be addressed prior to the possible implementation of a  “Zoning Pattaya Model” allowing entertainment venues to stay open for 24 hours, as opposed to the present arrangement – a “Hot Spot” or Red zone with 3:00 am closing, and the remaining areas with 2:00 am.

In the very near future, officials will cooperate with entertainment business owners to apply for licenses from the Royal Thai Police to allow the Pattaya entertainment zone to open 24 hours during the high season.
