UN Committee Calls on Cambodia to Search for Missing Thai Dissident

The U.N. Committee on Enforced Disappearances has called on Cambodia to “urgently search” for a Thai pro-democracy activist who went missing nearly three weeks ago in a suspected abduction outside his Phnom Penh condominium complex.

The committee, which monitors governments’ implementation of the international convention on enforced disappearances, registered an urgent action on behalf of Thai government critic Wanchalearm Satsaksit on June 10, the U.N. Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (UNOHCHR) said in an email on Tuesday.

“Cambodian authorities have an obligation to search for Mr. Wanchalearm Satsaksit and to investigate his disappearance,” UNOHCHR said.
