Chiang Mai police refuse to disclose how many protesters they have in custody

In Chiang Mai today, officials at the provincial prison turned down a request, from a group of lecturers and students, to be allowed to visit two protest leaders on remand there, Anont Nampa and Prasit Khrutharoj, claiming that they must be accompanied by the detainees’ lawyers.

 

The two are on remand for 12 days, pending police investigation, on charges of sedition related to a protest rally at Tha Pae Gate on August 9th.

 

Chiang Mai police also rejected their request for information on the number of protesters in custody with Anont, claiming that such information is confidential.

Oh gawd. Sounds more and more like Chinese authorities every day! Sad sad sad! Hoping the good folk of Thailand can overcome this oppression. In all probability, blood will need to be shed to achieve that end.

I look forward to the day of change, but for change to happen, those who are under those in power, e.g. police, military etc etc have to see it for what it is and want to become part of the change and side with those in the current times before the opportunity is missed once again.

Are any of the detainees from this past Mon protest at 3 Kings Monument in Old Town?

That was a very peaceful rally with many HS and Uni students there.  Police groups stationed around but doing nothing but playing on their phones.

If the roundup of peaceful protesters is the result of a State of Emergency as invoked by Prayut for Bangkok, the action is illegal according to the Thai courts.

 

In February 2014 the Court ruled against PM Yingluck using emergency powers under a 60-day State of Emergency to disperse peaceful protesters. See asia.nikkei.com and Reuters.com.

Ancillary to the ruling (as I recall) was that the police use of water cannons and tear gas to disperse peaceful protesters in December 2013 was illegal even as protesters forcibly entered and occupied Government House. Effectively, the Court neutralized the Yingluck government from quelling the protests. But now silence of the Court.

Apparently, the Rule of Law changes according to politics and which side is backed by the military.
