Thai protesters demand investigation of exile’s kidnapping

Protesters in the Thai capital held a small rally outside the prime minister’s offices on Friday urging authorities to investigate the suspected kidnapping of an exiled activist by unknown gunmen last week in Cambodia.

Wanchalearm Satsaksit, 37, a previously little-known pro-democracy activist who fled from Thailand following a 2014 military coup, was seized on a street outside his apartment in Phnom Penh on June 4.

Cambodian authorities initially said they did not have enough information to investigate but later said they would. Thai government officials have denied any role in the disappearance.
