The ruling military government in Thailand recently passed legislation that will give authorities the power to access and seize digital information and computer systems without a warrant.

Instead of needing to obtain a court-ordered warrant, the digitally invasive Cybersecurity Act, only requires that authorities convince an appointed cyber committee that reason for the seizure or infiltration is because of a high-security threat.

On top of that, a separate committee will be formed that will be able to summon individuals accused of cyber threats for questioning, as well as enter private property or request real-time access to information–all without a warrant.

Thailand’s military-appointed National Legislative Assembly approved the bill by a 133-0 vote.

According to Thailand lawyers, the new cybersecurity bill seems to contradict the requirements of a search warrant as mandated in Thailand Criminal Law.
