Especially those in search of companionship for a price, are now affectionately known as Coconut Ghosts and the 40 transsexuals were charged with loitering with intent to commit a crime.

This charge offers a maximum fine of 100 Baht which each transsexual paid before being released back on to the streets to presumably continue whatever they were doing previous to their arrest.

The Pattaya Police have vowed to continue rounding up male and female loiters on a daily basis so as to cause them as much inconvenience as possible with the hope they will finally leave the area for good.
