Thailand’s construction tycoon Premchai Karnasuta was sentenced to 3 years and 2 months in jail without parole by the Supreme Court today for poaching and hunting a black panther in Thung Yai Naresuan Wildlife Sanctuary in Kanchanaburi in February 2018. The Office of the Attorney General rushed out the announcement earlier so hurriedly that it underreported the sentencing of Premchai and Yong Dodkrua and Thanee Thummat, two of Premchai’s accomplices. The original report subtracted 8 months from each sentence mistakenly believing that a revision of the Wild Animal Preservation and Protection Act 2 years ago would reduce their sentences, but […]

Good. I hope he rots there, but sadly I know he won't; he has money.

I can live with people hunting for food and eating what they kill; we are carnivores, after all. However, hunting for sport or for collecting trophies is just evil.

If people want to hunt, they should get together with other people who want to hunt and hunt each other for sport. It'd be a simple matter of creating and signing a legal document stating that you were entering a contest where you could either kill or be killed and accepted the consequences. Put them into a fenced off area, and only allow one person to leave.

It'd be Darwinism at its finest.

He should have been given the full term as an example, never mind this BS of halving the sentence because he pleaded guilty, typical of Thai justice, now if he had been a nobody we all know what sort of sentence he would have received. 

TIT.

Prison, and the short sentence, is much to good for these types.

Never change their ways because of who and what they are.

Death is the only justice. 

Perhaps, he'll be taken care of while serving his time.

Anyone believe he'll be in a cell with 20 other prisoners???

Yeah. 

Of course, there wasn't any such mention as to where he'll be kept. 

My guess is that he'll be a guest at one of the special country club facilities.

Without parole? Really? Murderers, rapists, pedophiles, human traffickers, thieves, counterfeiters, all manner of lovely people are eligible to apply for parole after 33% of their sentence served. Being granted parole is a different story and takes months but Mr Moneybags shouldn’t have a problem with getting his application moved to the top of the inbox. Without parole? Maybe it was a special order from the court but I doubt that seeing as how one of his lackeys took the rap for actually killing the animal. If this guy didn’t kill the animal what was he actually doing there? Cleaning the guns? 

And kudos to the lowly paid forest ranger for not taking the bribe and reporting the attempt!

EDIT #2: BKK Post’s 2 articles about this sentence mention nothing about parole.

Not true, the panther is a carnivore, humans are omnivores. Much like rats, we will eat anything.

Perhaps the "birthday present" was not sufficient ?
