"Known to be one of Phuket's leading suppliers".. For how many years already? Was there never a thai smart 4.0 authority telling them in the past: 'Hey, don't forget about your license application'.?
Why arrested?  Give the Firm a hefty fine, fix the license, and start to go after transport mafia crimes. ( if they dare)
