sample letter:

Dear Prime Minister,

I am deeply concerned that the Thai government has targeted human rights defender, Anon Nampa, aged 39 years, with over a dozen criminal proceedings and is arbitrarily detaining him in Bangkok Remand Prison for  exercising his right to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly in public demonstrations.

Since 2020, the Thai government has pursued unwarranted criminal proceedings against Anon Nampa and at least another 1,927 persons, including 286 children, in a wide-ranging crackdown on exercising their rights. As a human rights lawyer, Anon has defended many of the individuals, including children, facing unwarranted charges related to their peaceful protests. The Thai government’s moves to stifle his and their peaceful exercise of their rights undermine your stated commitment to the advancement of human rights in Thailand. I am further concerned that the Court of Appeals denied Anon Nampa his right to temporary release on bail.

Therefore, I urge you to immediately and unconditionally release Anon Nampa and others who have been targeted for exercising their human rights.

Yours sincerely,
