4 years today

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.

    It’s great to see the lights on again at the Library! I read the interview with Sukanya at prachatai.com and she sounds resilient and strong and it seems that Somyot is as well, maybe the other way around.

    I send my best wishes to Somyot, and Sukanya, and to Tai as well. Perhaps, someday, even these things will be remembered with a smile.

    I saw Sukunya’s interview at prachatai and I’m glad that both she and Somyot are holding up as well as they are under these brutal conditions. I have nothing but admiration for Somyot, Sukunya, and Tai and wish you all the best.

    Perhaps, someday, even these things will be remembered with a smile.
