UNDER SIEGE. Violations of civil and political rights under Thailand’s military junta

Thailand’s worsening human rights record will expose the military junta to further international embarrassment during a review by a United Nations (UN) human rights body, FIDH and its member organizations Union for Civil Liberty (UCL) and Internet Law Reform Dialogue (iLaw) said today.

 

Thailand will be examined by the UN Human Rights Committee (CCPR) on 13-14 March 2017 in Geneva, Switzerland. The CCPR monitors Thailand’s compliance with its legal obligations under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR). In conjunction with Thailand’ s review, FIDH, UCL, and iLaw release “Under siege – Violations of civil and political rights under Thailand’s military junta”, a report that documents how military rule has had a wide-ranging, negative impact on the country’s human rights situation since the 22 May 2014 coup d’état.
