Sometimes, dead body might be preserved for a long time for some specific purposes. An important consideration is usually on the owner of the kept dead body. It is usually assigned to the offspring of the dead person. However, there is sometimes an interesting conflict on the rights over the dead bodies. Here, the authors present and discuss on the interesting legal cases in the court in Thailand. In the specific scenarios, there are conflicts on who will be the legal owner of the dead bodies of some holy persons. These cases are specifically rare cases of legal conflict in the court that should be specifically recorded and discussed.
