Officials say jailed wildlife killer Premchai is ok and has completed Covid quarantine

Premchai Karnasuta, former boss of Italian–Thai Development, now behind bars for searching and killing wildlife, is “doing fine” according to officers. The Bangkok Post reports that the Corrections Department have confirmed Premchai is sleeping properly in prison and has accomplished an initial 21-day stay in a Covid-19 quarantine area.
He will now begin a second 21-day quarantine interval inside the prison’s detention zone. Premchai is incarcerated at Thong Pha Phum prison within the western province of Kanchanaburi. Tawatchai Chaiwat head of the Corrections Department, says that after that, he’ll be transferred to his cell, as is the standard course of for all new inmates. Tawatchai says Premchai has had a medical examination and is doing nicely.
On December eight, the Supreme Court sentenced Premchai to three years and 3 months in prison for searching and killing a uncommon black leopard in the World Heritage Thungyai Naresuan Wildlife Sanctuary in Kanchanaburi 4 years in the past.
The jailed tycoon’s spouse, Kanita Karnasuta, has submitted a letter to Justice Minister Somsak Thepsutin, asking that her husband be transferred to hospital. In the letter, she lists a number of his illnesses, which embrace high blood pressure, diabetes, and coronary heart illness. Swipe has also just lately had eye surgery. Kanita has voiced concern that her husband might contract Covid-19 in prison, arguing that his chronic diseases put him at larger danger from the virus.
The Bangkok Post stories that Tawatchai has responded by saying any decision to transfer Premchai to hospital will be left up to the jail doctor. He says if the doctor believes the prison’s medical gear and supplies aren’t sufficient to deal with Premchai, he could presumably be transferred to hospital.
“All inmates are handled in accordance with human rights ideas, which embrace equal entry to well being providers. There aren’t any privileges for any specific group of people.”
