Capital Punishment in Thailand

The Bangkok Post has this article as part of a series on capital punishment.  The procedure for trial, appeal, and clemency is remarkably similar to our own.  (I don't claim to know how it actually works in practice.)  They have adopted lethal injection as the method of execution, unlike Japan which still uses hanging.

Opponents of capital punishment regularly harp on how it has been abandoned by Europe, but they rarely mention Asia.  Such an emphasis would be condemned as eurocentric or even racist if advanced in support of a Politically Incorrect position, but because it is advanced for a Politically Correct position it is okay.
