Sattahip, 1st January 2011 [Pattaya Daily News]: On the orders of the Sattahip naval base commander, Vice Admiral Chacharin Chusi, Lieutenant Commander Suthichok Taweewong, carried out a raid on  military prison buildings on the base to check prisoners’ urine for drug use. Of 167 prisoners present at the base 85 are serving time for disciplinary crimes, 17 for criminal offences and 65 are awaiting a judical decision. During the search no abuse of drugs, acohol, or signs of weapons or equipment that could be used to escape, were found.  The results from the urine tests were all negative.

Most of the prisoners are guilty of breaches of military discipline, or abuse of illegal drugs, in which case they have to admit to the offence,  explain their reason for drug abuse and swear to never commit the crime again. None of them are serving sentences longer than 3 years, and there are no prisoners convicted of violent offences. Vice Admiral Chacharin Chusi said he would like the military prison to be a clean prison. He said the raid was carried out by more than 30 men divided into 3 search troops.  Another reason for the special operation was a new year policy implemented by the government and naval commanders to suppress drug abuse and other illegal activities in prisons throughout the country.
