Electronic ankle bracelets to be tried from March 1

The Thai Court of Justice on Tuesday unveiled Electronic Monitoring (EM) devices to be attached to the ankles of people released temporarily from custody.

 

A pilot project for use by 23 courts, replacing the bail system, begins on Thursday (March 1).

 

The aim is to prevent suspects jumping bail and the incarceration of people who cannot afford to post bail.

 

The project addresses issues of social inequity and jail overcrowding.

 

The Court of Justice has established an Electronic Monitoring Centre at Bangkok’s Ratchadapisek Criminal Court.

 

Operating around the clock, it will monitor suspects wearing EM devices and limit their travel range.

Reading the headline, I thought for a moment they'd decided to resurrect the Mistress of TATs plan to electronically tag all the tourists...

Surely that would be of interest to the deputy PM, as a fashion accessory to go with his watch collection?

Way to go, Thailand!  Welcome to the 21st Century.  Of course, most modern and developed countries like the U.S., England, France, Germany, Austria, Australia, just to name a few, have been using these wondrous devices for over 15 - 20 years now.

Yes, and if one of these devices were by chance - a chance of once in a blue moon - put on a big-shot 'hi-so' person like Prawit (as if!)  - then the device would be found mysteriously to malfunction. 'Oh, what a pity - the machine went wrong - and we don't know where Mr. Hi-So Guy now is. Mai pen rai!'

They are being trialed as we speak.

Call me skeptic but...

No doubt they'll be a specific colour to match your political persuasion.

Any colour you want as long as it's red

They're guilty as charged.

 

(In a fully charged battery sense, of course.)

I am quite certain those busy in the bail business will be very unhappy.

I hope it's not a service supplied by those axe ladies near the markets in BKK?

Not too sure how good their aim is - you might end up hopping mad...
