Fourteen people were arrested when police raided three Pattaya bars for violating the law prohibiting alcohol sales during the city election.

The bars on Soi Buakaow and in north and south Pattaya were charged with selling alcohol around 1 a.m. June 17, about 8 hours before polls opened.

Election laws prevent the sale of alcohol from 6 p.m. the day before a poll to midnight the day of voting, even though polls close at 3 p.m.
