Prisoner Amnesty - 29th March 2006
In a ceremony held at the Pattaya prison in Nong Palai on Wednesday a total of 100 people were the recipients of an amnesty to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the King’s accession to the throne.

The 100 lucky prisoners were all serving terms for a variety of offences but had proven to be model prisoners and therefore worthy of an amnesty.

The ceremony was conducted by Khun Suparkit, the chief of Banglamung District, who told the soon-to-be former prisoners they should take advantage of their good fortune and avoid offending again.
