Tourist Courts In Thailand

The Thailand Tourism Court - Amazing Thailand and its Tourism Ministry is working on a plan to set up a tourist court to offer better protection to foreign visitors to the country. Many times they are needed as a lot of petty crimes happen - beware some Thai Girls are out to scam you.

Mr. Somsak said the concept is now under deliberation with Mr. Wirat Chinwinijkul, Secretary-General of the Courts of Justice.

He added that the court establishment will initially begin in the form of a tourist department under the Courts of Justice.

The Tourism Minister went on to say that the discussion with Mr. Wirat also shed light on the idea of a night court, in order to help speed up the legal proceeding.

Mr. Somsak is also scheduled to meet with National Police Chief Pol. Gen. Adul Saengsingkaew on May 1, when he will ask the police to be more swiftly and determinedly handle all cases related to tourists in order to allow subsequent court proceedings to go on and without any delay.
