Elderly Thai bridge players arrested for having too many cards
In the resort town of Pattaya a group of elderly bridge players were arrested for having too many unregistered playing cards.
|The local paper, Pattaya One, said the bridge players broke a 1935 law, the Playing Cards Act. The act prohibits individual players from possessing more than 120 unregistered playing cards. The Thai military government is on a campaign to crack down on corruption and crime. The group said they were not playing for money.|
Add aging Western bridge players to the list of desperadoes in Thailand’s seaside resort of Pattaya, a sin city rife with prostitution, corruption and foreign and home-grown gangsters.
