The mentally ill judge who was filmed throwing tantrums at two different governmental offices earlier this year died at her home in Bangkok’s Sena Nikhom area yesterday.
Eleven months after falling under public scrutiny for her inappropriate behavior, Judge Chidchanok Paensuwan died at the age of 45 yesterday. The details of her death have not been revealed by her family, according to Suebpong Srisakul, a spokesman of Court of Justice.
Chidchanok had been a judge at Court of Justice for over a decade. She was diagnosed with unspecified mental illness and was reportedly moved to an inactive post where she didn’t preside over trials. However, she kept her position as a judge.
In January, Chidchanok was filmed throwing a tantrum at the Department of Land Transport’s Mochit Office because she was angry to be slapped with a parking ticket.
She stomped back and forth in the office and threw a water bottle before going back to her car.
It was reported that she didn’t take her medication before the incident.
The next day, she had another meltdown at Metropolitan Electricity Authority, drawing criticism from the public who questioned if she deserved to keep her position as a judge.
Suebpong said the investigation against Chidchanok regarding the two incidents was still being pursued, which now would be put to stop.
