Cambodia halts probe into abduction of Thai activist

Sister of Wanchalearm Satsaksit claims Cambodian authorities refuse to look into the case.

The investigation into the abduction of a Thai political activist who was last seen in Phnom Penh eight months ago has come to a halt because Cambodian authorities are refusing to look into the case, according to the abductee’s sister.

Wanchalearm Satsaksit, a Thai pro-democracy campaigner who lived in exile in the Cambodian capital, was forcefully bundled into a waiting car by men outside his apartment on June 4 last year, never to be seen again.

The last person who was in touch with the missing activist was his sister Sitanan Satsaksit, who was on the phone with him just as he was being abducted by unknown assailants while he was out to buy food near his apartment building.
