Phuket Prison worries too many prisoners might cause violence during Songkran

Paisan Suwannaraksa, the commander of Phuket Prison, said that he had sent a letter to the Governor of Phuket to inform that Phuket Prison is facing excessive numbers of prisoners.

Actually, Phuket Prison can officially take care of 708 male prisoners and 165 female prisoners, yet, on April 9th, 2010, there were about 400 excessive prisoners in the prison.

Paisan said that the number of prisoners might be increased during Songkran Festival. He worried that the small and crowded area of the prison may incite violence in the prison during that time.
