Arrested Bridge Cub members given their passports back

The members of a bridge club in Pattaya who were arrested and charged with gambling offences in Pattaya last week have had their passports returned to them according to reports. Thirty foreigners were held for several hours after their club, founded by Briton Barry Kenyon, was raided by local police. It is now thought that the charges against them will be dropped. However until such time when the public prosecutor formally discharges the case in two to three weeks’ time it is unlikely they will see the 5,000 baht per person bail money. The group were charged under the Playing Card Act of 1943 enacted during the occupation of the country by the Japanese Imperial Forces.
