Royal Decree


Modifying Jurisdiction of Bueng Kan Provincial Court,


BE 2554 (2011)[1]




Bhumibol Adulyadej, R.


Given under our Hand this 23rd Day of May, BE 2554 (2011);


Being the 66th Year of our Reign.



His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej is graciously pleased to proclaim that:

Whereas it is desirable to modify jurisdiction of the Bueng Kan Provincial Court;

Be it decreed by the King's most Excellent Majesty, by virtue of section 187 of the Constitution of the Kingdom of Thailand and section 16, paragraph 1, of the Statute of the Courts of Justice which has been amended by the Act Amending the Statute of the Court of Justice, BE 2550 (2007), as follows:



§ 1

This Royal Decree shall be cited as the "Royal Decree Modifying Jurisdiction of Bueng Kan Provincial Court, BE 2554 (2011)".


§ 2

This Royal Decree shall come into force as from 20 May 2011.


§ 3

The Bueng Kan Provincial Court shall be competent to exercise territorial jurisdiction throughout Changwat Bueng Kan.


§ 4

The President of the Supreme Court of Justice shall be in charge of this Act.



Countersigned by:
Abhisit Vejjajiva,
Prime Minister.



Statement of Grounds

The grounds for promulgation of this Royal Decree are as follows: As the Act Establishing Provincial Court at Amphoe Bueng Kan, Changwat Nong Khai, BE 2534 (1991), prescribes that the Bueng Kan Provincial Court is competent to exercise territorial jurisdiction over Amphoe Bueng Kan, Amphoe Pak Khat, Amphoe So Phisai, Amphoe Phon Charoen and Amphoe Seka of Changwat Nong Khai, the Act Establishing Changwat Bueng Kan, BE 2554 (2011), now separates Amphoe Bueng Kan, Amphoe Seka, Amphoe So Phisai, Amphoe Bung Khla, Amphoe Bueng Khong Long, Amphoe Pak Khat, Amphoe Phon Charoen and Amphoe Si Wilai from the administration of Changwat Nong Khai to constitute Changwat Bueng Kan. It is hence expedient to have territorial jurisdiction of the Bueng Kan Provincial Court modified to be covering the actual administrative territory of Changwat Bueng Kan. In this respect, section 16, paragraph 1, of the Statute of the Courts of Justice which has been amended by the Act Amending the Statute of the Courts of Justice, BE 2550 (2007), prescribes that a court of first instance shall exercise territorial jurisdiction according to the provision of its constituent Act, and that in case of need and for the sake of the carriage of justice to the people, territorial jurisdiction of a court may be modified by a royal decree. It is therefore necessary to enact this Royal Decree.
