Main Article Content
The contempt of court has the objective to facilitate a judicial procedure with the greatest efficiency and swiftness as well as to maintain the order within and around the Court’s jurisdiction. In Thailand, there are three different laws applied to contempt of court offences: the Civil Procedure Code, the Administrative Court and Administrative Procedure Act B.E. 2542 (1999), and the Organic Act on Procedures of the Constitutional Court B.E. 2561 (2018). These laws provide different definitions of contempt and their penalties. However, since Thailand is a member of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR), the consistency of the provisions on the contempt of court and the position of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights should be considered in order to be aware of the recent situations in Thailand and follow the international standards.
