Pravit at Khaosod

13 10 2015

Pravit Rojanaphruk, called in twice by the military junta for re-education and then shunted out of The Nation by yellow-shirted ideologues, has found a home with Khaosod English.

The new employer states that:

[a] committed journalist with a 23-year career, Pravit will bring to Khaosod English his experience and dedication to one of journalism’s most fundamental but challenging roles: providing independent scrutiny to hold those in power accountable.

Pravit is quoted:

I am both honored and grateful to be invited to join Khaosod English, particularly at this very trying time for myself, the Thai mass media and society in general, which operate under the military junta…. I look forward to being part of the burgeoning team at Khaosod English in providing space for critical English-language news and commentary that would significantly contribute to maintaining freedom of expression and public access to quality and critical news and commentary about Thailand and the region.
