Thailand Extradition Law

by Admin on June 21, 2013

Extradition is the legal surrender of a fugitive to the jurisdiction of another state, country, or government for trial under Thailand Extradition Law

It has become harder for wanted criminals to hide in Thailand over recent years. Many foreign governments and agencies now retain law enforcement agents here and Thailand now holds 14 extradition treaties with other countries.

This video by Chaninat & Leeds law firm discusses extradition cases including the highly publicised Vicktor Bout case.

Extradition proceedings within Thailand are governed by the Extradition Act 2551, but are also are subject to the provisions of the international treaties Thailand holds with other international agencies.

The video also explains how proceedings can be expedited through The Immigration Act of Thailand, although this Act isn’t appropriate in every case which is exmained in further detail in the video.
