PPT was very pleased to hear about the release late on Monday, 31 May 2010, of Dr. Suthachai Yimprasert, the assistant professor at Chulalongkorn University who was arbitrarily detained by the CRES last Monday. PPT has previously blogged about Suthachai here, here, here, and here. You can also read about his case on the blog of Siam Democracy Cooperative, a new, emergent organization here.

Update: The Bangkok Post covers his release here.  Matichon covers his release here.
