Electronic monitoring hits Thailand

- +

The Ministry of Justice has introduced the use of electronic monitoring of offenders, bringing the country’s criminal justice system into line with many first world countries, Post Today newspaper’s website reported on Sunday. 

The ministry’s new regulation became law after it was published in the Royal Gazette on Friday, Post Today said.

The law was introduced after amendments to Section 89/2 of the 2007 Criminal Procedure Code which stipulates that the courts must find alternatives to custody to ensure that offenders remain in a designated place or do not enter proscribed areas by using electronic monitoring devices such as wrist bracelets and ankle bracelets. The bracelets allow authorities to continuously track them.
