The Justice Ministry will change regulations to make it possible for suspects to avoid jail without pleading guilty to charges of electronic ankle monitoring ( EM) bracelets.

The aim of the walk is to reduce chronic congestion in the country’s prison.

According to Justice Minister Pol Col Tawee Sodsong, the government’s prison have a maximum potential of 180, 000 residents. Nevertheless, more than 280, 000 people are currently being detained in Thai prison, with about 50, 000 of them awaiting trial.

According to Pol Col Tawee, the government is working on changing Segment 89-1 of a governmental regulation so that the court can make up its mind in some cases. Home incarceration with EM jewelry is one of the alternatives.

The Justice Minister added that those who are permitted to remain at home may include a better chance of preparing their lawsuits. He claimed that the government anticipates finalizing the investigation at the end of the time.

Thai Lawyers for Human Rights reported that activist Tantawan” Tawan” Tuatulanon, who had been detained before her bail was set at a 100, 000-baht claimant on Monday, was released from Thammasat University Hospital.

She was taken to the Criminal Court at 12:24 p.m. to get an EM ring.

Following her horn-honking rally at a royal parade on February 4, the campaigner has been accused of breaking Part 116 of the Computer Crimes Act and the Traffic Act.

According to a cause, the police are now gearing up to re-arrest Ms. Tantawan following a statement that she was also wanted under a different court warrant.
