No political prisoners in Thailand?

12 03 2010

On Thursday, 11 March 2010, the U.S. Department of State released its annual reports on human rights.  While the report on Thailand deserves a more robust critique than PPT is available to give it, we will note that the report claims that “There were no reports of political prisoners or detainees.”


What about Darunee Charnchoengsilpakul? What about Suwicha Thakor?  What about Boonyuen Prasertying? What about the many others who have been threatened and intimidated with possible charges of lese majeste or computer crimes?
