The offenders were also charged under Section 9 the Emergency Decree which prohibits the assembly or gathering of persons at any place or the commission of any act which may cause unrest.

A special administrative task force comprising seven members of the Territorial Defense Volunteers (OrSor, or Kong Asa Raksa Dindaen) and operating directly under the Phuket Provincial Office was led by Deputy Chief Urupong Chanakul and Assistant Thongchai Rattanadet.

No police officers were present for the raid.

Please, enlighten me. Arrests by a administrative 'task force', including volunteers?  No RTP officers present at the raid?  How many different thai bodies, besides the RTP can arrest people in Thailand?  That cock fight ring is well known. Bla bla act about causing unrest? What unrest?
