LRWC and the International Commission of Jurists (ICJ) prepared submissions to the court in criminal defamation proceedings by the Natural Fruit Co. Ltd. against human rights defender, Andy Hall, for his research on violations of labour rights in Thailand’s fruit export industry. The amicus brief identifies Thailand’s international human rights law obligations to ensure freedom of expression and protect human rights defenders and examines how criminal sanctions in defamation cases contravene these obligations.
