The organizer of the “Jenni Lily Daimod Thasodchuen” concert recognized a charge from the Cha-uat district office for failing to implement disease control measures in the packed concert event.
The prosecution followed criticisms on the concert at Cha-uat district in the southern province on the night of July 25 as concert goers did not wear face masks and no disease control measures were applied to curb the coronavirus disease 2019.
Cha-uat police chief Pol Col Thian Baltip said local authorities had warned the organizer of the concert to comply with disease control measures but to no avail.
The organizer was charged with violating Sections 9 and 18 of the executive decree on public administration in emergency situations. A local health official filed the complaint with police and the organizer confessed to the offence. (TNA)
