Today, the ICJ and Thai Lawyers for Human Rights (TLHR) made a joint submission to the Human Rights Council’s Working Group on the Universal Periodic Review in advance of the Human Rights Council’s review of Thailand in April/May 2016.
In their submission, the ICJ and TLHR expressed concern about the following issues:
(1) the impact of the new legal and institutional framework, imposed since the May 2014 coup d’état, on human rights in Thailand;
(2) instances of suspected enforced disappearance and torture; and
(3) issues concerning international human rights instruments and mechanisms.
