Patong Police Station suspects called

The first of 62 people who are to be charged over alleged illegal commerce on Phuket’s Patong beach fronted the local police station yesterday to deny any wrongdoing.

One of the beach vendors who responded to the summons to Kathu Police Station said yesterday, on condition that she not be named: ”We have done nothing wrong. I am surprised that the police are proceeding with these cases.

”Patong is not like Kata-Karon, where vendors negotiated large contracts with individual resorts.”
