Court fines for bail infringements can now be paid at 7-Eleven

The Justice Ministry have signed an agreement with Counter Service Co Ltd so that fines levied on guarantors can be paid in future at 7-Eleven and other outlets. 

 

Rawut Benjakul a secretary of the Justice Ministry and Wiradech Akkraphonphanich of Counter Service inked the agreement at the central criminal court in Ratchada, Bangkok yesterday. 

 

When people on bail do not show up in court fines are levied on guarantors. Previously they would have to travel to a court to pay the fines.

 

Now they can conveniently go to a convenience store!

 

The money is paid via Counter Service to KTB Corporate Online.

O M G..... WHY? Is this trying for modernization easiness for all the opposition MP's that will be brought to justice for holding media shares?

 

Maybe you can also have 7-11 products delivered straight to the jail cell or prison one stays in. Nothing like pure convenience when being inconvenienced!

This is ludicrous. But unfortunately it only goes to show that scores of people are apparently jumping bail in this country, otherwise a service like this wouldn't be initiated.

 

Will 7-Eleven branches set up special lanes for bail guarantors, perhaps? I expect lines to be quite long and don't want to waste time just paying for my tooth brush. 

 

And what's next? Transferring tea money to police and state officials through 7-Eleven so you don't have to drop by in person with your thick brown envelope in the briefcase?

Consider that some bail bonds can run into hundreds of thousands baht. 

 

I assume that this applies to minor offences and that there is a maximum limit to fines that can be paid in this manner.

I always wonder who has the strictest reporting requirements: those on bail in Thailand, Thai parolees, or long-stay foreigners?  🤔  Hummmmm?

When breaking the law is as normal as buying a bottle of milk...

Which one has the longer expiry date though?

Isn't the statue of limitations ten years? How long does long life milk keep for?

How about a system for 'pre-paid fines' for eg speeding etc.

Every 1000 baht  you spend you get 10 baht on your card. If you don't do anything wrong for a year you can use it against purchases in the following year or even for your road tax.

😆😆

I wouldn't want to wash my dirty laundry in public. I'd rather pay anonymously. What will the neighbours say if by chance they're standing behind me in the queue. I'd never live it down. The ultimate lose face.

"You'll never guess who I saw in the 7/11 paying his bail money."
"No, who?"
"What's his name, I always knew he was a wrongen"
"No, never, wait till I tell Maureen. She won't believe it."
"Mmm"
"Mmm"

Before you know it, according the the gossip circle you'll discover you've been released on bail for mass murder.

And keep this between us, two of his credit cards didn't work. He had to go out to the ATM and get cash. Now I feel really sorry for his poor wife.

Immigration should arrange it so that we can do the TM 30 at 7 Eleven.

I'm sure they can arrange for us to be able to pay the fine for not submitting it. Actually a brilliant idea, just make sure the immigration offices are open only 3-4am on Mondays to get the real $ effect.

Instead of the courts asking the guarantors where the bail-jumpers might be?

Great idea!

So funny in a face based false society they feel no shame in queuing up at the 7-11 & saying hi...I'm hear to pay the fine for my yaba head brother who skipped bail 😉

only in Thailand if you skip bail you can pay your way out, most law abiding countries send the police around to arrest you.

Unbelievable .
