Amnesty urges Hun Sen to probe Wanchalearm’s abduction as sister pleads for his return “dead or alive”

Amnesty International Thailand called on Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen to ensure “timely investigation of the abduction” of government critic Wanchalearm Satsaksit, in an event titled “One Month of finding the truth”, organised by the human rights organsation and the Satsaksit Family at Angoon Children’s Park in Bangkok’s Wattana district on Saturday (July 4) to mark the one-month anniversary since Wanchalearm disappeared in Cambodia.

The 37-year-old political critic was abducted by unknown persons from outside an apartment building in Phnom Penh on June 4. Wanchalearm fled Thailand in 2014 after the military seized power, and has been a vociferous critic of the Prayut administration ever since, broadcasting his views on Facebook.

Amnesty International Thailand director Piyanuch Kotrasarn read the organisation’s statement urging Hun Sen to ensure a transparent, efficient and timely investigation of the abduction.
