Dear Prime Minister,
I am writing to raise my concerns about Somyot Prueksakasensuk’s imprisonment and urge you to release him, dismiss the charges against him, and overturn his conviction. I ask you and teh Royal Thai Government to protect people who are peacefully exercising their right to Freedom of Expression and amend Article 112 of the Thai Criminal Code to bring it in line with International Human Rights standards.
