Support Somyot now!

Today is the 4th anniversary of Somyot’s prison sentence. We need your support to demand the immediate release of the well-known Thai human-rights activist and journalist Somyot Pruksakasemsuk by appealing to the Supreme Court of Thailand to hear his appeal and grant him bail.

 

At present, Somyot is appealing his verdict. Since he was first arrested and placed behind bars, like the majority of detainees under Article 112, Somyot has been consistently denied bail, despite 16 bail applications being submitted. On the fourth anniversary of his life behind bars, Somyot’s family and supporters submitted a seventeenth application for bail on his behalf. In Thailand, a week of events culminating today have been organised to push for his release.
