Particular penal provisions

Updated on 03.03.2013 [ ๐๓. ๐๓. ๒๕๕๖ ]

Legal Protection
Criminal proceedings in Thailand are lengthy. The possibilities of defense are limited and often do not correspond the international rule of law conceptions. In delinquency long detention, expensive and often inadequate legal representation and of harsh prison conditions is drawn to the danger. Any conviction for a criminal offense (also trifles) in Thailand leads after serving the penalty of a deportation and an unlimited re-entry ban.

Prior to acquisition, possession, distribution, import and export of intoxicants of all kinds (including marijuana, ecstasy and other amphetamines) is not recommended. Even the possession of small amounts of drugs leads to heavy sentences (a judgment against a German: a life sentence for 37 grams). Even with relatively small quantities of heroin, cocaine and amphetamines, the Thai criminal law automatically assumes that these are intended for trade. Although the possession of these drugs is also already punishable in trade, however, the Penal Code provides for the death penalty. The death penalty is also enforced in Thailand. In 2004, six drug dealers were executed. Including two foreigners. The Thai government has repeatedly stressed convicted drug dealers are executed quickly, and makes their announcements also true.
