Why You Wouldn't Survive The Bangkok Hilton Prison

Let’s start with the fact that it is a maximum-security prison.

It was made by King Rama VII in 1931 for detaining dangerous, long-term, and death row inmates and currently, it is the only establishment in Thailand responsible for the execution of the death penalty by lethal injection.

Bang Kwang Central Prison holds death penalty inmates in the death row unit and almost all the prisoners spend much of their time in prison in leg shackles, even when they are behind bars.

However, in 2013, the Department of Corrections launched a pilot project to remove the leg shackles from about 560 death row and life sentence inmates to improve its record on prisoner rights.

There was a whole ceremony presided over by Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra on May 12 2013 to unchain the inmates.
