    Sattahip’s Mountain B pub renamed, reopened and raided by police

    Chon Buri police and local officials raided a pub last night (Saturday), which is located on the same plot of land in Sattahip district as the Mountain B pub, the scene of a deadly fire on August 5th which has, to date, claimed the lives of 26 people and left others in hospital to this day.


    Police said that the new pub, named “Never Land”, opened for the first time last night, offering food, drinks and live music. The Mountain B was ordered closed for five years following the deadly blaze.


    Pol Maj-Gen Nunthavut Suwanlaong, deputy commissioner of Second Region Provincial Police Bureau, said they will invite the proprietor of the new pub to come to Phlu Ta Luang police station to answer some questions.


    He said police will check the land title deeds of “Never Land” and compare them with the deeds for the Mountain B pub, adding that the new pub will have to close if the venue is found to be located on the same plot.


    Meanwhile, Pongsiri Panprasong, the owner of Mountain B, said in his Facebook post today that his life has been ruined following the tragic incident and that his life savings have been used up to compensate the injured and the families of the dead.


    He said that he needs to make a living to feed his family and begged for an opportunity to reopen his business.


    One injured victim said in his Facebook post that he has been discharged from hospital, but still has to see doctors to treat his burns, which incurs expense.

    It doesn't take long to become immune to this bullshit does it? Little shocks me any more.

    Why would it need to be closed for 5 years? Just to punish him? Isn't the fact that he has to pay for damages and restitution punishment enough. He should just have more frequent inspections to remain in business.

    Don't places have to have a licence and inspection pre-opening?

    When all is said and done the officials and police were as much to blame for the deaths as the owner.

    Yes, just to punish him, and no, it's not enough.

    Otherwise you're essentially saying that justice should be based on wealth.

    Probably the same person as last time .

    Ditto

    Have any of the authorities been charged ? Not that I have heard, so they probably think they are untouchable.
