Living under Martial Law in Thailand
So we all wake up the other day to the announcement that they have installed martial law and in a few hours the whole country is supposed to be on lock down as the military enforce a curfew from 10 pm until 5 am. You can bet that one of the most search documents the other day was the Martial Law document from the Thai Law Forum.
It is the unofficial translation or so it claims but take a quick look at it because it's really funny. It basically says that the Military have the power to kick you out of your home, burn it down, level the place and occupy the space for any infinite amount of time that they seem fit! In fact the way it sounds they could probably bring you back and force you to dig a 100 foot wide 50 feet wide trench around the property...by yourself.
Relax! I don't see this any different than when they stop selling alcohol. It's not the first time this has happened either I've been here for the last one and curfews before that, a night in is hardly a hassle for me at least. Is it really for you?
Hey maybe i'm wrong and tomorrow i wake up and have to pack sand backs and eat my words.
