Two Serbian tourists have been fined 5,000 baht each for inappropriate photos they took at Wat Phra Si Rattana Satsadaram in Bangkok.
The photos posted on social media showed a 31-year-old woman sitting with her legs exposed on a low wall surrounding the main hall in the monastery at the site, also known as the Temple of the Emerald Buddha.
They were taken by her male companion, also 31.
Police tracked down the pair and summoned them to the Suvarnabhumi airport police station and charged them with obscenity under Section 388 of the Criminal Code. They were fined the maximum amount for the offence.
The two tourists said they weren’t aware when they visited the temple and took the pictures that their acts were deemed illegal, according to police. – Bangkok Post
