Officers also checked for drugs and to ensure that venue operators had the required licenses to sell alcohol.

In a report issued by the PR Department, one of the top priorities was to ensure that venues were not selling alcohol “within the vicinity” of “educational institutions”.

The raids began at 10pm after Phuket Governor Nisit Jansomwong passed down the order to make sure all officers throughout Phuket were upholding their duty “to enforce the law seriously to decrease crime and social problems and to protect teenagers from alcohol”

I have no problems with cracking down on under-aged drinking, but it is pointless when young kids are walking into 7-11 and buying beer and wine coolers, like I saw the other night in Kamala.
