Thailand: Drop Charges Against Student Protestors (UA 136/15)

Fourteen students and young activists held in prison after peaceful protests have been released. They and two other students, now free on bail, still face trial in a military court.
1) Please write immediately in Thai or your own language:
  • Calling on the authorities to drop charges against all 16 students charged for taking part in peaceful protests;
  • Urging them to ensure that no-one is harassed, intimidated or penalized for supporting those peacefully exercising their human rights;
  • Calling on them to repeal or amend all laws and edicts which arbitrarily restrict the right to peaceful assembly and which allow for the prosecution of civilians in military courts.
