SEAPA on the extended state of emergency

8 06 2010

The Southeast Asian Press Alliance has issued a statement on the indefinite extension of the state of emergency in Thailand. SEAPA aptly stated that:

“Though the Thai government has expressed its concern that incendiary messages in the media might threaten national security, it is also worth noting that the state of emergency has a tremendous impact on the free expression situation of Thailand.”

Read the entire statement here: 8 June 2010, “Thai government extends state of emergency”

As PPT posted earlier, the extension of the state of emergency is very concerning. What we now want to know is, how long, Mr. Abhisit, how long will you repress speech and arbitrarily detain those you see as dissident?
