Sa Kaeo curfew violators given unsuspended jail sentence


The Sa Kaeo provincial court on Thursday (April 16) ordered unsuspended prison sentences for nine people charged with violating the provincial governor’s curfew order as well as the Emergency Decree on Public Administration amid the Covid-19 crisis.

Wang Nam Yen police on April 14 had arrested the nine people at 11pm, some of whom are teenagers, when they were drinking and partying on a dam ridge in Sa Kaeo’s Wang Nam Yen district, in violation of the curfew from 10pm to 4am the next day.
The court gave each defendant an unsuspended jail time of three months, after which relatives of the defendants presented a bail of Bt52,000 each to take the case to the Court of Appeals.
