More human rights defenders targeted in Thailand

In continuing efforts to stifle any dissent in Thailand, the Thai military has charged three human rights defenders under the draconian Computer Crimes Act. The three activists, Somchai Homlaor, Pornpen Khongkachonkie, and Anchana Heemmina, are all part of the Cross Cultural Foundation. They had produced a report detailing torture practiced by the Thai Army in its operations in the south of Thailand. This is just the latest in a long line of cases that the military junta in Thailand has initiated against opponents.
