Once a Thai, always a Thai, specifies charter court


No Thai national can be thrown out of the country or stopped from returning home, nor can their nationality acquired by birth be revoked, said an announcement in the Royal Gazette website on Wednesday (June 10).

The announcement, signed by Constitutional Court’s secretary-general Chaowana Traimas and released on May 28, cited the court’s ruling dated May 21 that said exiling a Thai national or prohibiting them from returning to the Kingdom is not allowed as per Article 39 Paragraph 1 of the Constitution.
The article also says that the revocation of a Thai person’s nationality acquired at birth is not permitted.
