The purposes of this thesis is
to discover the internationally- accepted rules relating to arrest of sea-going vessels
and to observe any obstacles arisen from uncompatibility of Thai legal provisions and the
international laws. According to this research, it is found that some provisions of Arrest
of vessels Act of B.E. 2534 are inconsistent with the international laws which are deemed
universal. Those provisions are related to qualification of a claimant who can request for
an arrest, the scope of maritime claims, types of the arrestable ship and jurisdiction.
This thesis thereby provides recommendations for amendment in some aspects of Arrest of
vessels Act as follows :
- To entitle the claimant domicile abroad to apply for arrest of
vessels in Thailand.
- To expand the scope of the rights falling within the meaning of
- To extend the right to arrest the particular ship, although the ship
was later transferred to thrid party.
