Looks like Khun Prasarn and Khun Siriphong refused to turn in their brown envelopes this month. Funny, all these stalls throughout Phuket sell the same bootleg merchandise. We've all seen it...one shop after another, same same...no different.  It is very curious as to why just a couple of shops get picked out from time to time.  Transparent corruption for all to see, I guess.

Guess, after raiding 2 stalls the police truck was full, not able to target more stalls. On the other hand, OTOP market must continue to exist, right? This raid was good for commission continuation. 'OTOP' market awake again.  TIT.
It is all so transparent what these raids actually are for.  Next month another 2 stalls. Keep it fair.
