Human right watch afraid of Rights Abuses by Thai Government Forces and the Red Shirts (UDD)
I was laughting while reading this news yesterday. It was about Human Rights Watch who was gravely giving a lot of shits about serious abuses by both Thai government security forces after The leaders of Union for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD), known as the Red Shirts are nder arrest. First of, Let’s take a look at what Human right watch said!
“We’re seeing a lot of arrests by the government, but where are these people being taken? The government should provide information on those detained, where they are detained, and under what conditions they are being held. We’re not just talking about the leaders of the Red Shirts, but everyone who is being held. The authorities should promptly give family members and legal counsel access to the detainees.”
“Human Rights Watch is very concerned that the government has invoked the Emergency Decree, which provides blanket legal immunity to officials, and allows the government to hold persons outside of regular places of detention. The Emergency Decree is contrary to Thailand’s international obligations and could open the door to serious abuses.”
“Once again, the government and the army are clamping down on websites and other media. While the government should take action against those inciting violence, in this chaotic situation, it is essential for civilians to be well-informed so they can stay out of harm’s way. The government’s broad-brush restrictions prevent that.”
Now seeing what’s going on in Thailand!
You may see these kind of treatments only in Thailand. I wonder if there is any other country generously treating such a people who are under political arrest like the way Thai government does. There is a rumor that the UDD leaders and can even do facebook or twitter. WTF???
