Yesterday, the Mini Siam Motorcycle Club Pattaya donated 40,000 face masks and 40 bottles of hand sanitiser to the Pattaya Remand Prison. The donation was led by Mr Thada Boonpan.

“There are many confirmed cases of Covid-19 at prisons in Bangkok and other provinces, although Pattaya Remand has so far been spared. We want it to stay that way. We are taking care of the prisoners and officers in the prison. We donated these items so they can use them to protect themselves from the virus.”

Mr Manop thanked the Mini Siam MC for their magnanimous gesture and assured the public the donations would go to “those in need”.

2 weeks ago it was reported that Pattaya Remand Prison had zero infections.

Thailand’s prisons have frequently been in the news recently for their Covid-19 infections throughout the kingdom. Following these new outbreaks (and possibly a result of calls from the Human Rights Watch/Amnesty International), the government has pledged to increase prison funding, and possibly release some prisoners on parole.
