Jom Petpradab’s statement on media freedom

Prachatai (11 September 2009) has produced Jom Petpradab’s statement ( in some reports his name is rendered Chom Phetoradab) on media freedom and the threats posed. Jom is the journalist who did the live interview with former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra on 6 September on MCOT. He begins: “Thai media, freedom of speech, and freedom to information are under threat in Thailand by a government that is robbing the people of their rights and freedoms.”

Well worth reading in full.
