    Default Lethal injection

    https://www.bangkokpost.com/news/gen...r-put-to-death

    326 people put to death since its introduction in 1935. Sounds very low compared to 24,000 in one year in China.

    How do they determine who lives and who dies after killing someone? I have read of lots of nasty murders in Thailand yet the killers are clearly still alive.

    To a certain extent for sure Sammy but there are hundreds of grizzly murders in Thailand that we all read about and the majority are out in the sticks.

    I am genuinely intrigued to know how Mr. X who kills his partner in cold blood or another family member gets a prison sentence and this one in the report gets death.

    I found this out:
    The list of mitigating circumstances includes lack of intelligence, serious distress, previous good conduct, repentance by the offender, voluntary surrender to an official, and information given to the court for the benefit of the trial. [61] In 2005, the Thai government reported to the U.N. Human Rights Committee that there was no mandatory death penalty.

    In-country experts indicate that there is “a very powerful set of customary rules” guiding courts’ consideration of mitigating and aggravating factors in criminal trials. An offender’s background and behavior, including during trial, will significantly impact sentencing. A guilty plea will typically result in prison sentences being halved.

    In practice, however, Thai lawyers report that judges often impose the death penalty without any consideration of mitigating circumstances when it comes to certain offenses, particularly drug-related offenses. Typically, judges will consider imposing a sentence other than death only in cases in which the accused confesses to the crime, cooperates with the police, and/or expresses remorse.


    The deaths carried out are between 15 and 20 per year at present. There are around 650 convicts on death row.

    The law is an...........

    Yes you hear of many murders here and don't hear what happened.

    This case went quiet but it looks like justice was served.

    I wonder where they think the three girls will find that sort of money.

    Thai justice/law baffles the heck out of me.
