BANGKOK, Apr 17 - Bang Rak district chief Surakiat Limcharoen filed complaint against three Thai women dancing topless during Songkran festival at Silom area together with their supporters and those releasing the trio's video clip on the internet.

The complaints are to charge the three ladies, dancing topless on Friday night at the Silom-Narathiwat intersection area, with a fine of no more than Bt500 each for shameful behaviour in public, while their supporters are to be responsible by two-thirds of the. trio's punishment. Those releasing the clip will face imprisonment of up to 5 years and fined up to Bt100, 000 under the country's Computer Crime Act.

Concerning the matter, Culture Minister Nipit Intarasombat had asked prosecutor to order those related in the case to also perform public duties apart from paying the fine such as reading books for kindergarten children about the Songkran festival at least three times to set as good example.

He said that the clip has negatively affected the image of Thai culture and that all parties involved with such behaviour should be punished, while asking police to give importance to this issue, for it destroys the country's reputation.

Meanwhile, ABAC Poll conducted a survey on what the public thought of the dancing incident.

Conducted on 1,134 persons aged above 18 in Bangkok and its vicinity on April 16-17, the Assumption University poll found that 94 per cent heard of the news, while 91 per cent indicated that the Thai society has long deteriorated.

Some respondents viewed that adults do not set themselves as good examples to children, while others said teenagers themselves do not behave.

About 87 per cent said they were worried of the future of their children in this society, while over 80 per cent of respondents said more punishment should be made to those committing immoral acts and violating law, as well as to related government officials in charge of. the area.

I don't know wether I agree or disagree with this. Its a hard one morally for me. On one hand I think, its a party and a hundred years ago women walked bare breasted anyway. On the other hand Thai culture is slipping away and I can understand why people want to keep their cultural identity, especially with much of the west to hold up as a "shining" example of were you end up if you allow the cultural decline to go unchecked.

As far as the YouTubers go, if they staged it it could be argued I supposed that it was a direct attempt to slur or debase; however, if it was just some guys that caught it on camera and then posted it - and it was done in public - then they should not be charged at all IMO.

Just what does he think Thailand's reputation is? Shocking how this wonderful pure society will be marred by these hussies! The fact they are allowed to flaunt themselves in public and sell their bodies with impunity in bars often owned by policemen is doing far, far worse damage.

500 Baht for dancing topless; 100,000 baht or 5 years for uploading the video to Youtube... The message is that it is not a big deal to dance topless in public - as long as nobody finds out. Pretty much like Thai politics...

And which country endorses hanging their dirty washing out in public? Of course the country is not totally pure - nowhere is - but surely it's understandable that people want to extole the good and hide the bad - not the reverse. Look how quick we are here to defend our home countries when slurred - always make for the longest and most vicious of posts.

I watched the uncensored video and it is still out there.

This is extremely bad for the country’s image around the world.

It has the semblance of the Brits loutish behaviour in the Spanish holiday resorts.

It is simply done in bad taste and should be kept in the bars. In fact these girls have brought the bar culture out onto the streets in full view of children and for the world to see.

A 500 baht fine is a joke for lowering Thailand’s image to rock bottom.

I guess that the pillocks who uploaded the video onto the Internet are shiteing their pants right now and the girls claim to fame has backfired on them.

In most countries prostitution is either legal or illegal and enforced. What exactly is the situation here? How can the government on one hand make such a fuss about protecting "Thailand's image" when there are hundreds of ladybars, Pat-pong and Pattaya? I ask again - what part of Thailand's reputation is being damaged?

Extolling the good and hiding the bad does not improve the country's reputation, it only shows hypocrisy. Next thing they will bend stats about murder, rape, etc. as these also lower the ignorant foreigners' opinion of this wonderful nirvana Thailand.

There are many clips on the web of US "Spring Break" students doing much worse in public - yet I don't see this public reaction from US government officials. They have real problems to worry about I guess.

Just remind me how many people were killed over Songkran, how many buckets of water were thrown into the faces of motorcyclists causing a some to fall off, I know of one young girl that was killed in such an incident and people are causing such a fuss over these two young women having fun - pathetic.
