Tanthawut remembers Ampol

13 06 2012

PPT highly recommends the moving account of the life and death of Ampol Tangnopakul,written by fellow lese majeste convict Tanthawut Taweewarodomkul, and expertly presented by Tyrell Haberkorn at Prachatai.The translator writes:

The letter is translated here because it is an account of the events leading up to Ah Kong’s death, which remains surrounded by questions. It is a historical document –one which bears witness both to the injustice Ah Kong experienced and the compassion and solidarity between two friends, Ah Kong and Tanthawut.

It is a valuable document that everyone opposed to the draconian lese majeste law must read.
