Innocent Card game leads to arrest of 12 Scandinavian’s at Pattaya Bar

Chonburi Immigration Officers detained a group of 12 Scandinavian’s who were caught playing cards at a bar in Soi Beokoew close to the Grand Hall Market.

Initially Officers were convinced that money was involved in the highly organized card game but were unable to find any money changing hands which meant that no actual offence was taking place.

Despite this, the group of middle-aged tourists and long-term residents were taken to the Immigration office in Jomtien where they were warned to be careful about taking part in card games, even if money is not changing hands.

The group denied allegations of gambling and promised officers that no money was changing hands and they were playing only for fun and were eventually released without charge.
