Cambodia to probe Thai democracy activist’s alleged disappearance

Cambodian police have said they will investigate the alleged abduction of Wanchalearm Satsaksit, a critic of the ex-general Prayut Chan-O-Cha's Thai government, who witnesses say was dragged into a black car in Phnom Penh on June 4.

Cambodian police said on Tuesday they will investigate the alleged disappearance of a self-exiled Thai activist, denying any involvement in what a rights group claimed was an abduction.

Pro-democracy activist Wanchalearm Satsksit, a sharp critic of the Thai government, was dragged into a car in broad daylight last week in the Cambodian capital Phnom Penh, according to Human Rights Watch, which cited witnesses and security camera footage.

“I would like to confirm that Cambodian authorities and police did not arrest that individual,” National Police spokesman Chhay Kim Khoeun told AFP, as fears mounted about the activist’s safety.
