The Thai Court of Justice and Immigration have inked an electronic data sharing deal that aims to stop suspects and defendants temporarily released by the courts from fleeing Thailand. 

 

The "realtime" system is part of the country's "4.0" upgrades, reported Naew Na. 

 

The Memorandum of Understanding was signed by a justice secretary Sarawut Benjakun and immigration deputy Pol Maj-Gen Pornchai Khantee at the Ratchadaphisek court yesterday. 

 

The agreement will link the Government Information Network with immigration's much vaunted two billion baht "biometrics" system. 

 

It will enable the authorities to more effectively monitor those forbidden from leaving the kingdom as well as those who are permitted to travel while out on bail. 

 

It will affect 6,000 people annually. 

 

Maj-Gen Pornchai said that the old system was done on paper and took two or three days.

Great! One step in the right direction that will be more effective and quicker. Hopefully with a good result too.

Thais love paper. I can’t see them doing away with the need to use so much paper. 
 

Maybe they will create a digital system that will still require a print out and a photocopy of said print out. That would be the Thai way.
