The trial for Somyot Pruksakasemsuk began this week in Bangkok, Thailand. Somyot is a labour journalist who has been arrested under Thailand’s draconian Lèse Majesté law.
The IFJ has released a statement in support of Somyot.
At a recent conference in Melbourne, Australia, a facebook flashmob demonstration was held to call for his release. The Victorian Trades Hall Council has now added its voice with a letter calling for Somyot’s release.
