Convicts to be enrolled in making guns for Defence Ministry

The Corrections Department is reviewing inmates in the prison system nationwide who have been convicted of illegally making or modifying guns to enrol them in training with the Royal Thai Army Ordnance Department to aid the Ministry of Defence in manufacturing weapons.

Department chief Pol Colonel Narat Sawettanan said on Monday that he had instructed prisons and remand facilities nationwide to review inmates involved in gun crimes to respond to a policy set by Prime Minister General Prayut Chan-o-cha for qualified inmates to be trained to assist the Defence Ministry’s weapon-making industry.
