At a meeting ahead of the weekend 100 operators were told:

No patrons under 20 were allowed inside.

No weapons or drugs were allowed on their premises.

No human trafficking was allowed.

No opening outside of scheduled hours was permitted. 

Pol Col Prawit Chorseng has taken over at the top after Pol Col Pongphanmaneethet and four deputies were transferred after prostitution was found in Soi 6 a few weeks back. 

77kaoded said that the chief was acting on the orders of the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) who took over the country in a coup in 2014 and have yet to be disbanded after national elections. 

Thaivisa notes that the wording of the report suggests that Pattaya will be allowed to be Pattaya but that underage prostitution will not tolerated.
