Pattaya, the 9th of October 2010 [Pattaya Daily News]: At approximately 11:00pm on Saturday, Lieutenant Colonel Choosak Kaytong (Crime Suppression Special Unit officer) and his team conducted a sting operation at the Soho Bar (A-Go-Go) on Soi 6, off Pattaya Beach Road.

In similar circumstances to Thursday’s raid on the Mandarin Bar, officers using a foreign national as an undercover agent infiltrated the Soho Bar, after reports surfaced that the establishment may be offering prostitution services by way of ‘short-time’ rooms located above the main bar.

Following the setup, whereby the undercover agent requested and paid for the use of the aforementioned sexual services, officers raided the premises and arrested eight women, including the bar manager, Mrs. Pornsawan Iammala [33].

The seven arrested staff/Go-Go dancers were found to be all under 20-years-of-age, while Mrs. Iammala reluctantly confessed to being the owner and manager of the establishment. Police investigating the incident were reluctant to provide the media with any information pertaining to evidence confiscated in the raid other than the information of those arrested.

The seven employees of the establishment have been charged with ‘prostitution and/or aiding in the prostitution of others’, while Mrs Iammala has been charged with being the ‘owner/manager of an illegal prostitution business’.

Editor’s Note: As with the case of the Mandarin Bar earlier this week, the officers involved in the raid are part of the Bangkok – Crime Suppression Special Unit – Police. This may constitute a show of force by the unit undermining local authorities and/or promoting the new commander of the national division. High-ranking Royal Thai Police officers are rotated in their positions on a yearly basis (every October), including divisional heads.
