Three Pattayans appointed judges to Chonburi Juvenile Court
Will join effort to stem juvenile crime
Pattayans Pracha Chaiyakulwat, Panga Vathanakul and Sopin Thappajug were amongst 34 judges that received appointments from His Majesty the King to the Chonburi Courts Family and Juvenile Department.
Over 200 people attended the swearing in ceremony, presided over by Judge Sompon Satayaphithan, Head of the Family and Juvenile Department.

The Family and Juvenile Department was first established in 1995. The judges who are appointed to the department must be at least 30 years of age, must have had two years working experience assisting or training children, and must have completed educational training in Juvenile and Family Law.
Judge Sompon made comments on the current alarming problem of juvenile crime, which for the most part stems from the current economic situation causing children grow up without proper guidance from parents. Parents move around taking employment where they can and the children are left with relatives or friends with the family nucleus being scattered.
The large majority of juvenile cases from the Banglamung area have to do with drugs or theft. The establishment of the Juvenile and Family Department in Chonburi should help provide some assistance with juvenile problems and help provide needed changes in juvenile behavior.
