A team of officers from Phuket Provincial Defense Office and the Royal Thai Navy Third Area Command raided ‘@ Moom Mor’ restaurant in Kathu on Wednesday night (June 27).
Officers arrived at the shop where 14 tables of customers were using baraku (shisha).
Officers arrested a 20 year old Thai man, Feeraskan Akbas, from Narathiwat. Officers seized 960 grams of baraku and 17 set of baraku smoking equipment.
Feeraskan was taken to the Kathu Police station where he has been charged with providing baraku and e-cigarette equipment and opportunities which is prohibited in Thailand.
Vaping, the popular alternative to smoking cigarettes, whilst legal in many countries, could put you in jail in Thailand for up to ten years. Baraku (shisha and hookah) are all banned for use in Thailand.
