Update: Prachatai (linked above) reports that Pravit “has been detained incommunicado since Sunday.”

Pravit was also detained just after the 2014 military coup.

As shown in the snip below, two military officers visited his house on Saturday to detain, but could not locate him. He tweeted: “Two military officers went to my place, but I wasn’t there. The junta has my phone number, why didn’t they call me? I will never flee!”

He reported to the military on Sunday, “accompanied by Pawinee Chumsri, a lawyer from the Thai Lawyers for Human Rights, and Pokpong Lawansiri, a human rights officer from the United Nations.”

Soon after, his lawyer was told that Pravit had been removed to “another Army base, but did not reveal the location. The military also did not reveal the purpose or the period of detention.”Pravit 2 (2)
