Public Seminar on 10th Anniversary of Somchai Neelapaijit’s Enforced Disappearance

Prominent Thai Muslim human rights lawyer, Somchai Neelapaijit, was abducted and subjected to enforced disappearance on 12 March 2004. At the time of his “disappearance”, Somchai Neelapaijit was a lawyer representing those allegedly tortured by police officers in the deep South. Ever since then, human rights organizations have continued to urge the Royal Thai Government to bring the perpetrators to justice and to end the serious ongoing human rights violations in the restive deep South, including arbitrary detention, enforced disappearances, extra-judicial killings and torture.
