Illegal hostel crackdown in Krabi

Administrative officers, soldiers, police and land officers in Krabi have conducted raids in an effort to follow up recent crackdowns on illegal hostels around Krabi.

Krabi Vice Governor Apinan Pueakpong says, “in yesterday’s raids (July 17) we found more than 10 illegal hostels which have modified the buildings without a permit and are operating without proper licences. Some of these ‘hostels’ have also been encroaching on the footpaths out the front. Those hostels have been temporary shut down until they can produce the correct documentation.”

Sarat Kiewkong, Director of the Public Work Division, Krabi City Municipality says, “We have warned these hotels to modify their buildings according to the local codes and laws before, but they didn’t do so.”

Krabi’s Governor, Lt Col ML Kitibodee Pravitra, says, “We are strictly checking every corner of Krabi without an exception. Everyone must follow the law. If any building is found to be illegal they must modify the building according to the local codes and laws before they can open their hostels again.”
