Thai courts to have bailiffs once law put in place


Bangkok – Thailand will soon have bailiffs who will handle the task of arresting those who violate bail conditions.

The National Legislative Assembly (NLA) earlier this month voted in the draft legislation to add bailiffs to the court system.

The draft was proposed with the aim of boosting the effectiveness of justice procedures and curbing delays due to situations that affect the ability of judges to proceed with cases, such as defendants jumping bail or failing to adhere to court orders.

The bailiffs will be responsible for providing security to personnel and court property, preventing and suppressing wrongdoings at court, and tracking down bail jumpers and presenting them in court.
