    Pattaya police crack down on alleged transgender sex workers

    Pattaya police inspected Beach Road last night, November 22nd, and took dozens of suspected transgender sex workers to the police station for identity recording in order to prevent potential crimes during the tourism high season.


    The intense prostitution purge was conducted by a combined team of Pattaya police and tourist police last night at Beach Road following complaints from anonymous concerned citizens. This also comes in advance of the highly anticipated Pattaya International Fireworks Festival this weekend which is expected to attract over 100,000 visitors.


    According to the leader of the operation Pol. Lt. Col. Pitchaya Khiaoplueng, many individuals whom he suspected were illegal sex workers left the road and pretended to be beachgoers strolling the beach immediately after they sighted police officers.

    Nonetheless, 36 alleged sex workers were arrested and taken to the Pattaya police station to have their identities recorded. The reason for this measure was likely because Pattaya police were waging war on a rash of petty crimes allegedly committed by transgender suspects against tourists.


    Pitchaya stressed to the suspects that they could not loiter on the beach and offer sexual services to people walking by because it contravened the Thai prostitution law and damaged Pattaya’s tourism image.

    All suspects were released, and Pattaya police pledged to continue their crackdown on prostitution every day.

    Damaged? Hell for many tourists might enhance Pattaya's image.

    And the wheel turns.

    How many times have we seen these freakish thugs get rounded up, fined a few baht, and then spat back out to ply their criminality yet again.

    A number of years ago the Pattaya City authorities did lose patience and targeted a few trannies for a good kicking on their way to the nick after which they were put on a bus back home and warned not to come back. Sort of worked for a while but since the Thai are incapable of doing anything properly the status quo soon re-established itself.

    Katoey thuggery has boomed in Bangkok in recent years and they are now the dominant fauna on the streets down lower Sukhumvit at night. The girls of course have eschewed the old beer bar/ freelance MO and now mostly ply their trade via chatrooms and the like leaving the street bar scene to old broilers servicing the lower end blue collar farang oik so well represented by TD members.
