BANGKOK – The Prime Minister has ordered a strict regulation on the ban of alcohol sale near education institutes, encouraging the public to inform officials if they find any violation.
The Prime Minister Gen Prayut Chan-o-cha has received the latest report regarding the suppression of illegal street racing and the sales of alcoholic beverages near education institutes, stating that actions have been taken against people who have violated the ban, including parents of persons involved in the illegal street race circuit.
