Thailand: Jatupat Boonphatthararaksa

Thailand: Free Hunger-Striking Activist

Thai authorities should urgently release a student activist detained since August 6, 2016, for peacefully protesting the military junta’s proposed constitution. Until his release, the Department of Corrections should transfer Jatupat Boonphatthararaksa, who has been on a hunger strike since August 7 at Phu Khiao prison in Chaiyaphum province, to a hospital where he can be under medical supervision.

8/19: Taken into custody by Khon Kaen police immediately after the Chaiyaphum Provincial Court granted him bail, Jatupat is not yet free.
