Veggie Fest fun to be closely watched

PHUKET TOWN: The Deputy-Commissioner of Provincial Police Region 8 has ordered Phuket’s police force to strengthen security, especially during the Vegetarian Festival from October 5-15 when there will be many tourists, both foreign and Thai, visiting the island. Pol Maj Gen Pramote Pansakul warned yesterday that Phuket police would be vigorously enforcing the law, and would pay particular attention to the use of illegal drugs and the closing times of nighttime entertainment venues. Also under the spotlight, he said, would be “groups deemed a nuisance to society”, such as motorcycle racers.
