Sex Offenders Will Be Treated With Chemical Castration In Thailand

Posted: Tuesday, July 12, 2022. 9:40 am CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Lawmakers in Thailand have approved chemical castration for sex offenders, in an effort to cut down on reoffending, the DailyMail reports.

Sex offenders who are considered to commit more sex attacks after their release will be given the option of the injection, which lowers their testosterone levels, in return for a reduced prison sentence.

In addition, offenders will still be monitored for 10 years and wear electronic bracelets.

The bill was passed in March and approved on Monday by 145 senators. However, it still required another house vote.

Data indicates that of the 16,413 convicted sex offenders released from prisons in Thailand between 2013 and 2020, 4,848 re-offended.

Once approved, Thailand would join other countries that use chemical castration including Poland, South Korea, Russia and Estonia, and some U.S. states.

Last year, Pakistan also announced that rapists convicted of repeat offenses would face castration.
