Italian-Thai Development President Premchai Karnasuta was sentenced to six months in jail for possessing a rifle without permission

 

The Appeal Court on Tuesday (August 11) sentenced Premchai under the Firearms and Ammunition Act 1947 for possession of a rifle in Bangkok without permission.

 

The crime is punishable with imprisonment for a year under the Firearms Act, Section 7, 72. However, since the accused pleaded guilty the sentence was halved to six months in prison.

 

Premchai claimed the rifle belonged to his father and remained in the house after his death.

 

Later, Premchai was granted bail on a Bt200,000 guarantee as he planned to appeal against the verdict in the Supreme Court.

'Premchai' is a true anagram of 'impeach.'

 

Shame that just means 'blame' and not imprison . . . . 🤨

TIT!

Appeal being found guilty when you have pleaded guilty. Seems rather strange. In most countries if you plead against the term of a sentence you are very likely to get the sentence increased particularly if the sentence was reduced in exchange for a guilty plea. Maybe the brown envelope might work in a higher court.

One really wonders why he would appeal yet again. He already pleaded guilty, i.e. he ADMITTED his guilt. So what did he reasonably expect the outcome to be? A dismissed case with no consequences of punishment whatsoever?

 

I secretly really hope that the Supreme Court is going to double his sentence. Though I'm not holding my breath.

He will be  appealing the sentence only hoping it will be suspended.....which with his contacts has probably already been "negotiated".

Except "Premchai" has 8 letters and "impeach" only has 7.

Perhaps that's 'true' in the sense that he's going to prison.

The farce continues.... How long before it comes to its inevitable, pre-ordained end?

This was the guy caught poaching protected wildlife in a national park in Kanchananburi about 2-3 years ago right? Dead protected animals being eaten in his camp with furs all around? And all he gets done for, and still not in jail, is for possesion of a rifle?

Notwithstanding that by bail they actually mean ' indefinite bail ' provided the envelopes keep coming.

The jail sentence is a metaphorical one.
