Without lawyers

7 07 2010

The Bangkok Post reports that the National Human Rights Commission has expressed concern that “more than a dozen” Thais arrested following the bloody 19 May crackdown on red shirts “have yet to get a lawyer and learn about the charges.” It seems that 2 of the foreigners arrested at the same time know of the charges but are also without legal representation, meaning that the charges remain unclear for them.

We wonder if the NHRC even knows how many people have been arrested. Independent agencies clearly don’t.

Even the most basic human rights are ignored in Abhisit Vejjajiva’s Thailand.
