by Admin on August 24, 2017

A bikini party which was streamed on Facebook live for six hours earlier this month drew unwanted attention from Thai police, Thai PBS reports.

The party was held by Sakchai Udon, 49, and his daughter, Nutchanant, 23, who were celebrating the opening of their floating raft house on the Srinagarind dam.

Their live video went viral and caught the attention of Kanchanaburi provincial police, who called them in for questioning. However, it wasn’t the bikini-clad women who got them in trouble, but the drinks they had in their hands.

Illegally advertising alcohol carries a fine of 500,000 baht and a maximum jail sentence of one year. The video clearly showed alcohol brands, including bottles in every table, and therefore violates the Alcoholic Beverage Control Act 2008.

No other charges were made, as participants in the video were found to be over 18 years of age, and no drugs were found when urine tests were done. Police thoroughly inspected the video, but found no further violation of Thai criminal law, including the Computer Crime Act.
