Special law enforcement in the provinces at the southern border of Thailand will not affect innocent people. Non-government organizations (NGOs) have been promoting the cancellation of special law enforcement being implemented in the provinces at the southern border.
The attempts to stop the special enforcement have been visible in the media and Internet. Moreover, the NGOs have held conferences openly to discuss the human rights of civilians living in the affected areas. The NGOs have been working to stop of this law enforcement widely and continuously throughout Thailand.
The attempts are more than just running conferences and contacting the press about their opposition to special law enforcement. They have also issued a report regarding the situation in the provinces on the Thai border. They intend to submit the report to the United Nations (UN) and other international organizations. The report contains mostly negative information and does not cover all the information, including the positive aspects of the government’s policy. This has had the effect of providing support for the criminals whose purpose is annex the southern part of Thailand into a new country.
The details in the report badly affects the solution the Royal Thai Army is trying to implement to solve the conflict problem in the south border provinces. This has a direct impact on the soldiers who work onsite.
There are three special laws being enforced in the southern border provinces of Thailand. First is the enactment of a siege in the year 1914. This law of enactment emphasizes promptness to settle serious incidents. The second is the decree of administration under an emergency situation in the year 2005. This law emphasizes protecting and adjusting the attitude of the misdemeanors so they will aid officers by giving more information on the criminal groups, their networks, and alignment. More importantly, this decree provides justice to civilian, police, and military personnel; this law is under the control of the Thai court of justice. The third law is the enactment of security and stability of the kingdom in the year 2008. This law emphasizes the opportunity of the misdemeanors to convert to the development of the country. All three laws are necessary tools for the officers who work in the region, because these areas are under special circumstances. Therefore, we need to understand benefits and detriments of the government’s policies by first coming to understand the true circumstances.
The Thai government and Royal Thai Army both are very clear about the peaceful intent of their policies dealing with the situation in this area. Officers have been taught to enforce these special laws carefully to cope with the situation in accordance with the purpose of these three laws. Moreover, the officers in these areas use these laws only as necessary. This is to maintain the well-being of the more than two million innocent civilians living in the region.
The use and enforcement of these three laws by the officers within the border provinces is under the control and inspection of the court of justice. If anyone finds the laws are being misused, the officers will face litigation. Even though these are special laws for enforcement, the officers have never acted violently toward the people. This mean the civilians in these areas will not have their normal lives affected at all.
The enforcement of these special laws in the provinces at the southern border of Thailand from the past to present is highly beneficial, because it maintains the security of the lives and assets of the civilians in the area. The special laws’ enforcement only affects criminals. For example, roadblocks are there to help search for and arrest the criminals and terrorists.
These special law enforcement tools make the officers and soldiers work faster with more accuracy. A serious analysis of the facts and evidence should include asking who will gain benefits and who will lose. The voices of more than two million civilians in the areas say that the people are benefitting. Of course, that raises the question of who is losing the benefits.
