Junta thugs threaten pro-election activists

22 01 2019

While Prachatai reported that pro-election activists avoided a clash with the newly-reformed anti-democrats and X-men who oppose pressuring the king to endorse the election decree, one pro-election activist was attacked.

Akechai Hongkangwarn was attacked and bashed by three men and another issuing orders to the attackers. He was “assaulted … after leaving a rally demanding timely elections…”.

An ardent junta critic and former lese majeste prisoner, Akechai said “three men wearing motorcycle helmets attacked him at about 7pm after he left the campus to eat dinner. He sustained wounds to his head, face and arm.”

He added that “the assailants only fled after a group of Asian tourists rushed to his aid.”

Junta thugs have been tailing and attacking Akechai for some time. They are likely to acting on the orders of military supporters of Gen Prawit Wongsuwan.
