Somchai Neelapaijit

Thailand

We would like to ask your attention for the following:

Today it is exactly 8 years ago that Somchai Neelapaijit dissappeared.

Somchai Neelapaijit defended terrorists in the turbulent south of Thailand. He disappeared on 12 March 2004, shortly after having publicly for accusing the police of torturing his clients in prison. Nothing has been heard of him since. His car was found empty. Despite pressure from Somchai’s family, Thai society and the international community, those responsible have still not been held accountable.

The judgment on appeal, on 11 March 2011, confirmed that the Thai authorities are as yet unable to answer the question of who was responsible for Somchai’s disappearance. The Court acquitted all of the five suspects of the abduction of Neelapaijit. It also ruled that Somchai’s wife and children were not eligible to exercise their rights as an aggrieved party and, in that capacity, to uncover the truth of this matter.

Today we remind the Thai authorities of their obligation to continue investigating the disappearance of Mr. Neelapaijit fully and objectively.
