Thailand: LRWC calls on Thailand to cease judicial harassment of human rights lawyer Ms. Sirikan “June” Charoensiri. The statement identifies Thailand’s international human rights law obligations to withdraw all charges and stop all prosecutions against Ms. Sirikan, and ensure no further retaliation against, intimidation of, or interference with Ms. Sirikan or other lawyers carrying out their duty to represent clients. LRWC calls on Thailand authorities to repeal laws that violate international human rights law, stop trials of civilians by military courts and develop a national law based on the recently produced Model Law for the Recognition and Protection of Human Rights Defenders.
