The dust jacket for hard covers may not be included. Thai prisons fail to meet international standards, with inmates routinely shackled, stuffed into overcrowded cells and forced to work in harsh conditions, an international human rights group said Tuesday.
Thailand also has the highest incarceration rate in Southeast Asia, jailing out of every , people, according to the report by the International Federation for Human Rights. There are more than , inmates in prisons with an originally estimated capacity of less than ,, the report said, with the massive overcrowding forcing the inmates to live in harsh conditions.
Most inmates were convicted on drug-related charges, the legacy of a war on drugs launched by former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra in Under Thai law, possession of heroin or methamphetamine is punishable by up to 10 years in prison. The overcrowded conditions are made worse by high turnover among guards, forcing prisons to rely on skeleton staffs, said the Paris-based human rights group.
Prisoners told interviewers from the rights group that overworked guards would beat them with clubs, throw them in solitary confinement, or keep them chained and shackled for weeks, despite government initiatives in to end the practice. With too many prisoners, inmates can find themselves stuffed into packed cells with no beds and squat toilets with no enclosures for privacy. At night, they lie pressed against each other on mats on bare linoleum floors.
The prisons have medical clinics, but at one Bangkok prison inmates say they are treated by "two-minute doctors'' because they rush through the medical checks. Inmates work seven days a week, sewing, folding paper and fixing shoes, earning as little as 23 US cents a day 8 baht , according to the report. Prison conditions violate various UN treaties barring torture and stipulating minimum prisoner rights that Thailand ratified decades ago, the group said. Government agencies involved in justice and narcotics issues say they are working to ease the problems.
