Prajin said 70 inmates who have been convicted of making guns or modifying gun-like objects have been selected to receive training to improve their skills. Of them, 33 will be selected for new jobs in the Royal Thai Army, Prajin said. Twenty will work as technicians while the other 13 will be designated service providers.
Prajin said the scheme was part of a Justice Ministry project to return inmates as “good people” to society. Under the project, the ministry tries to find jobs for released prisoners to meet their skills, or to find them work near their houses.
For example, the ministry will try to find some inmates jobs in hotels.
