NOTE: in September 2006, the quasi-legally elected government of Thaksin Shinawatra was tossed
out by a military Coup;
the 'government, its' policies, appointments, and administration' has therefore been made by Pro-Junta
this will have effect for investors, property owners,
and those wishing legal-judication of a dispute.
Legal protections were already inplace but were strenghtened such that it is impossible to sue
for medical malpractice.
Also, as Thailand has never signed the UN Hague Convention on Childrens Human Rights, a thai citizen can
abduct a 'biological' child without concern of arrest or custody dispute from the Thai officiales.
The police, courts, and embassies will go out of there way to assist with the abduction to Thailand or
within Thailand. The 'biological' foreigner parent has no legal defense or police or foreign embassy assistance [as Embassies'
policy is not to interfere in the 'soverign rights' as practiced by Thailand.]
The United Nations examined Thailands public phramacys, about 10,000 of them, and found only about
100 meeting any basic standard, meaning there is a high error in judgment and qauality.
Thailand remains on numerous Watch Lists for human rights abuses
and trading abuses.
