In Thailand there is the law and then there are ways around the law and it seems if you have a successful business in Thailand no matter how illegal it actually is you’ll find a way to keep it going and we can just assume it’s done by cash.
You may or may not remember about a month ago the Secrets bar in Pattaya was raided under allegations that the manager was pimping girls out. Wow big shocker there! I’ve been to Secrets and it’s just like everywhere else really except they have their rooms attached to the club right so you can bar fine the girl and take her to the room right there. Now I don’t recommend anyone opening a club and having the deed go down on premises but the owners of Secrets with their Vegas style club t-shirts beer cups and stuff don’t seem to mind in fact they are flaunting the law.
Think about it if you owned a club and the girls are bar fineable and go somewhere else you’re not really responsible for what goes down that’s between the girl and the guy once they leave the premises. However if it goes down on premises and the girl works for you, you’ve gotta be responsible right?
None of that really matters now since I got the following email:
Around a month ago we had a bit of a major sting put on us. We cannot comment publicly about what happened, only to say that’s it’s all cleared up now. And everything is running as normal. Thank you for your understanding.
The 6th Year party is going to be huge, with many guys confirmed
Thank you all for your support of Secrets. We look forward to seeing you all soon
We do still have some rooms available for July/August – You can book on the website www.SecretsPattaya.com – Book asap to avoid disappointment
Enjoy Life and Have fun
Hmmm, isn’t it funny how you always see these big profile busts go down and then nothing, you never hear about the sentencing or actually what happened to the case do you? That’s because nothing does happen. So even though the manager and the mamason were caught prostituting the girls in the club and were arrested they’ve sorted it all out? Come on guys how do you sort it out eh? They were caught red handed and in fact If I went in there today on another sting I’d find the same stuff that’s been going on for the past 6 years this place has been opened. Sure everywhere in pattaya is like this but the fact that the deeds go down on premises make it too easy to catch.
I doubt very much the mamasan or the manager are very unlikely to see any time and the Secrets club is going to continue to operate. If this was the western world the place would be shut down immediately, if it were Australia where you can actually get a license to run this place and an underage girl was found it would still be shut down, but even though this isn’t the western world it’s still Thailand and Thailand still has laws and it’s clear that this place is breaking the law each and every day yet nothing will ever change this.
Might sound like I have a problem with this club well yeah I kinda do, like I said I don’t like how they Vegas style it with t-shirts and a souvenir shop, i mean honestly the place is a brothel no matter how much they dress it up with coffee cups with their logo on it. People go there for one thing we know that but do you have to have a souvenir shop as well?
The manager in this case should have gone to jail because he took the cash, i mean he should just be locked up for stupidity in the first place. Isn’t there a pimp training manual somewhere for Pattaya or do I need to write one? So yeah whatever he should be locked up for stupidity and Secrets should be closed for flaunting the law. “We are not allowed to comment publicly” they said only question I have left is how much did that cost?
