Topless teenage dancers get dressing down in Thailand

A COMPLAINT was lodged with police yesterday over topless female Songkran revellers whose sexy dancing on the streets of Bangkok was recorded and posted on the Internet.

Video clips showing the topless Songkran revellers were posted on the Internet on Saturday, provoking a public outcry.

The National Police Commissioner vowed action against both the topless revellers and their cheering crowds. Culture Minister Nipit Intarasombat, meanwhile, wanted action taken against those lending loudspeakers and stereo systems for the topless dancing.

'Apart from being fined, the topless girls should be required to do some cultural work. For example, they should be made to read books about the Songkran Festival for young students to listen to as part of the punishment,' Mr Nipit said.

In another case of indecent exposure, two transvestites were fined yesterday for exposing their breasts during the celebrations.

'I am so sorry for doing so. I was under the influence of alcohol. Next year, I will wear a decent Thai costume to celebrate Songkran,' one said.
