BANGKOK, 20 August 2014 – The National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) has given the approval to increase the cost-of-living-allowances (COLA) of all judges under the Administrative Court starting on October 1st.
NCPO spokeswoman Pathamaporn Rattanadilok na Phuket disclosed that the ruling military leaned in favor of the move so that the kingdom’s judges would be able to cope with Thailand’s current economic situation.
The adjustment would be made based on the judges’ rankings and salary levels.
Level 1 and level 2 judges would have their COLA increased by 6,700 baht and 6,900 baht per month respectively.
Level 3 and level 4 judges would receive higher allowances of up to 7,300 baht and 12,500 baht per month respectively.
