Police Colonel Suwan, the Pattaya Police Chief led a group of 20 Police Officers and Police Volunteers on an early morning mission to the main entertainment areas of South Pattaya with the task of rounding up as many transsexuals as possible who, the Colonel says, are the main group responsible for tourist-related crimes in the Pattaya area.
The transgender women wearing revealing dresses and high-heels were forced to sit on the floor while Pattaya police chief Apichai Kroppetch lectured them.
Lt. Col Kroppetch said officers had targeted ‘’risk groups’’ most likely to cause issues with holidaymakers.
He said: ‘’Illegal behaviour will not be tolerated. Pattaya will become one of the most safe places for tourism.”
