Police plea for alcohol-free holy days

PHUKET: Police have asked shops, bars, restaurants and hotels not to sell alcohol from midnight tonight until midnight on Friday, to honor Asarnha Bucha Day and Buddhist Lent Day.

Phuket City Police Superintendent Pol Col Paween Pongsirin explained that although there is no legal requirement for outlets to stop selling alcohol during these two days – and those who do will not be liable for any penalties – he expects most places to comply.

“We ask for your cooperation,” he said.
