No pedofile thing there. The man you saw was "caught" having a collection of porn pictures, no underage porn or stuff mensioned at all.

Even "normal" porn is illegal in Thailand, you know.

I guess that everyone on this board would be arrested too if we brought our PCs to Thailand, i know for sure i would get a loong time in prison! :10:

Below is the article from the North West Evening Mail (Barrow - his home town)

He seems very rich and has been involved with the same sex for years. Does money buy you everything??




THE business partner of a former Furness man arrested on child sex charges in Thailand has leapt to his defence.


Alan Charles Mawson, 74, originally from Barrow, was bailed after being accused of holding thousands of pornographic images of children found at his flat in the holiday resort of Pattaya.


He was also quizzed in relation to sexually abusing a 14-year-old boy.


Mawson ran one of Brighton’s oldest gay saunas for more than 30 years.


His business partner at Bright N Beautiful, Philip Oliver, said: “He has been out in Thailand for a couple of months. We go there about three times a year, it’s like our second home.


“I had no idea he had been arrested, I only spoke to him two days ago. I don’t believe it. All I can think of is that it must be some sort of bogus charge.”


A gay Brighton man, who does not wished to be named, told the Evening Mail he knew Mawson and his former partner for many years.


He claims Mawson is a multi-millionaire worth more than £10m, inherited when his partner died, and owns large Victorian properties in Brighton as well as the sauna.


He said: “He also owns a huge number of substantial detached villas in Pattaya, Thailand, and has other major business and share interests.”


Mawson also owns a property-leasing firm and has been travelling to Thailand for the last 20 years. Thai police claim to have found more than 20,800 pornographic images of children in the flat after raiding his apartment in the Diana Estate, Pattaya.


Video footage of the raid has also been released. The pictures show a truckload of pornographic images being taken away from his apartment. Police say they found more than 100 photo albums, containing more than 200 pictures of naked boys and men, 300 pornographic CDs and six digital cameras.


Captain Sorakit Thanyasri, from the police, said Mawson denied all the charges.


A Foreign Office spokeswoman refused to confirm the name of a 74-year-old man arrested in Thailand. She said: “He is receiving consul advice. The charges relate to pornographic images.”


A spokeswoman for Pattaya Tourist Police today said investigations are still ongoing.



yeah sounds like a nice man !!!

I must tell you this guy came in last night with a Monkey, well I thought thats strange but hey a customer is a customer so we served them, well they got so pissed and then the Monkey collapsed totaly blotto, and the guy got up to leave, well I said to him "you cant leave that lyin there", he said it's not a lyin its a Monkey.


Then this morning a woman comes in with a dog, and we are not too busy and she sits the dog outside, so I am sitting there eating my breakfast and the dog keeps coming in and jumping up to me, obviuosly smelling the bacon, so I asked her if I could throw him a bit, she said sure, so I got hold of the dog and threw it up the Soi about 20 yards.


Anyway have a nice day. :10::P:P

Well I thought they were funny, as for the guy Alan, yes he is Gay, I dont judge him on that, he is a customer and he gets my respect as any other customer does, I believe the pics were not of children or kids but teenagers and older and of course this in Thailand maybe illegal I dont know but Apparently prostitution is illegal.........

After discovering Canterbury Tales during my last trip early September I had their breakfast every day, except the day we were on Ko Samed. Great value for money, I thought. Took a few BG's there for breakfast too, no complaints from the girls either.


Davo will check out your rooms next trip.
