The person in question is using dual nationality to hide behind, he won’t accept British Jurisdiction because he claims to be Irish, he was born in Ireland to British parents but claims to be British when it suits him also.

Is a British court order enforceable in Thailand?

Hi,

No. It can be taken to Thailand and then a similar judgement obtained through the Thai courts, but this would be a costly and complex process.

I hope this answers your questions. If so, kindly rate the answer and provide feedback.
