Security forces have raided a nightclub in the Thonglor area following reports of the club extending its operating hours.
Soldiers and officers from Thonglor Police Station inspected ZION Night Club in Sukhumvit 55, locally known as Thonglor in Wattana district. The search was made as a number of residents had complained about the noise made by the discotheque which they also claimed often stays open longer than the closing time required by the law.
The raid occurred at 2.45 am which was later than the legal closing time but the place was still packed with both male and female customers. It was found that ZION Night Club operates without a license. The manager was taken to the police station to face legal charges.
The military is preparing to cancel the club’s liquor sales license and impose a five-year closure on it, invoking the National Council for Peace and Order’s order no. 22/2559.
