Police guard Cambodian embassy in Bangkok amid protests over 'kidnapped' activist

Police guard the Royal Embassy of Cambodia in Bangkok, Thailand, today (June 15) following protests against the disappearance of a Thai activist who was kidnapped in the neighbouring country nearly two weeks ago.

Angry pro-democracy campaigners chanted and held banners voicing anger at the apparent silencing of Wanchalearm Satsaksit and other exiled dissidents who disappeared while hiding in Cambodia.

The activists also demanded action over other activists who fled to Laos or Cambodia and ended up disappeared or killed, as well as physical assaults against campaigners in Thailand.

Speaking today, rally leader Somyot Prueksakasemsuk said: โ€œWhen Prayut Chan-ochaโ€™s administration uses the law to block us off, the more he does that, the more evidence that the Thai government is participating in enforced disappearances.

''The more he uses the law to harass us and restricts our rights, the more this shows that the Prayut administration is made of crooks and bandits that kill their citizens, especially refugees.''
