Police arrest 5 people over pornography shoot in Pattaya

Police walked into the middle of a pornography shoot during a raid at home in Pattaya, Thai media reports. 5 people were arrested and allegedly told police that they got into the exotic film industry due to financial problems brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Officers say the suspects were wanted for filming sexually explicit content on a smartphone and sending the videos to people in China. Pornography is illegal in Thailand under Section 287 of the country’s Criminal Code. Those who produce sexually explicit material and make it available to the public can face a penalty of up to 3 years in prison and an up to 6,000 baht fine.

Officers obtained a warrant from the Pattaya Provincial Court and raided the home suspected of being linked to pornography. Police say they walked in just as the pornography was being filmed. Police arrested a Chinese man, 3 Thai men and a Thai transgender woman.
