Three foreigners were arrested after being caught swimming off a closed Pattaya beach. Their names and nationalities were not revealed.
The three were threatened with fines of up to 100,000 and a year in jail for violating the emergency decree which has closed all Pattaya-area beaches until at least May 31. Beaches were taped off to make it obvious they were closed.
A police drone spotted the foreigners swimming on a beach behind a hotel on Pratamnak Hill.
