THAILAND----juvenile death penalty is abolished

Death penalty abolished for young offenders

The Thai government has abolished the death penalty for offenders
younger than 18 years of age and further reduced life imprisonment
terms for minors to 50 years in prison.

The change came after the cabinet approved on May 20 the withdrawal of
Thailand's interpretative declarations to Article 6(5) and Article
9(3) of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights
(ICCPR).

"[As per Article 6(5) of the ICCPR] Thailand has amended its domestic
laws to comply with these provisions. Thailand has abolished the death
sentence for persons below 18 years of age," the Justice Ministry
said.

"Moreover, in the case where life imprisonment is imposed on persons
below 18 years old, the sentence is to be reduced to 50 years'
imprisonment."

As for Article 9(3) of the ICCPR, the Criminal Procedure Code has been
amended to oblige officials to bring arrested persons before the court
within 48 hours after he or she is brought to the inquiry office, with
exceptions for when force is used or in the case of other unavoidable
necessities.

The withdrawal of the interpretative declarations is part of the
implementation of the pledges Thailand made during its successful
candidature for membership of the United Nations Human Rights Council
for the 2010-2013 term.

It is also part of the implementation of voluntary pledges made by
Thailand during its Universal Periodic Review by the Human Rights
Council in October 2011.
