Police officers have the right to keep an alleged offender for investigation for 48 hours. In case the investigation is not finished within 48 hours, the investigating police officer must obtain a court order granting confinement time extension. The period of extension of confinement is at the court’s discretion.

During the 48 hours of the investigation stage, the alleged offender has the rights as follows:


  •  Be informed of charges brought against him by the arresting officer. They must show the arrest warrant (if issued) to the arrested.
  • Remain silent or testify any facts.
  • Inform his embassy, relatives, or any people of his arrest and the place of his incarceration.
  • Privately consult with his lawyer by making a written or verbal request to the police officer on duty for meeting his lawyer at the police station. The court can provide a lawyer without any cost for an alleged offender who cannot afford one.
  • Have an interpreter (for non-Thai speakers) provided by the police or the court for translation during the legal procedures.
  • Have a lawyer present at every step during the investigation.
  • Receive visitation (if incarcerated) during business hours or at any time allowed by the police officer on duty.
  • Receive proper medical treatment, if sick. Police officers will provide an escort going to a government hospital before confinement and after receiving permission from the police station chief.
  • apply and post a bail request form to the investigating officer and they will review the bail request without delay.
