Rak Thailand party leader Chuvit Kamolvisit can adjust himself with life in the prison because he used to spend time in prison and he has not asked for anything extra, said Mr Aryut Sinthoppan, commandant of Bangkok Special Prison, on Friday.

Chuvit spent his first night in prison Thursday after the Supreme Court sentenced him to two years imprisonment without suspension for his role in the demolition of about 60 bars on a land plot on Sukhumvit road which he owns. 32 men who were involved in the violent incident were also jailed.

Mr Aryut said prison officials explained to Mr Chuvit the regulations that he has to follow like the other inmates. However, he said that the former MP would be moved to the other zone because his case was already finalized.

Mr Chuvit’s family members and close relatives asked to pay visit to him since the morning, said the commandant.

Visting hours are from 8.30 am to 11.30 in the morning and from 12.30 pm to 2.30 pm in the afternoon from Monday to Friday. Visitors can only make one visit a day and each visit will last 20 minutes.
