Thailand mulls teaching convicts English and sending them to work abroad

Recommended Posts

Thailand has come up with an ingenious way to solve their prison overcrowding problem and help the labour market.

The highest authorities in the land are coming together to export convicts.

The country's jails are full to bursting with criminals and many have been deemed safe for release of one kind and another.

So the plan is to train them better in all the varied skills they will need so they can reenter society and work.

While most will end up in valuable positions in the Thai labour market some will inevitably end up abroad.

Thus prisons and vocational training courses could soon feature classes in English or other languages that would aid convicts in landing plum employment abroad.

Yesterday in Bangkok amid much razzamatazz, Justice minister Somsak Thepsuthin and his counterpart at the Labour Ministry MR Chatumongkol Sonakul signed an agreement of cooperation on the scheme.

Well, it's worth a try. Australia might welcome convicts. :)
