Border forces tighten patrol as entertainment venue in Myanmar reopens


The Pha Muang Task Force is strictly patrolling the Thai-Myanmar border after Tachileik entertainment venues located across the border from Mae Sai district in Chiang Rai province reopened.

The authorities are on vigil for Thai people being smuggled across the border to work or gamble along the border, especially with the risk of Covid-19 being spread.

From April 2021 to date, the Task Force was able to arrest illegal immigrants from Myanmar 13 times; 59 smugglers were found to be coming from northern Myanmar, which has a border with India.

The source said that job openings were announced on the Tachileik side of the entertainment complex called "King horse fly pub 6888", which is located only about a kilometre from the border checkpoint at the Thai-Myanmar Friendship Bridge.

In addition, entertainment venues and hotels with casinos are open again for customers.
