Some 50 ethnic Uighurs detained in Thailand for irregular entry must be protected from forcible transfer to any country where they may face torture. Fears for the individuals are heightened following the Thai authorities’ forcible deportation to China of around 100 other individuals on 8 July 2015.
 
1) Please write immediately in Thai, English or your own language:
  • Expressing serious concern that Thai authorities have forcibly returned some 100 people believed to be ethnic Uighurs to China, where they might be at risk of torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment and punishment;
  • Urging Thailand not to send anyone, including an estimated 50 ethnic Uighurs whose nationality is unknown, to a country where they would be at risk of torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment and punishment.
