The Working Group on the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) is reviewing the Royal Thai Government’s compliance to human rights norms and obligations. The ICJ submitted its stakeholder report to the HR Council.
The report focuses on four principal issues:
- the prohibition against torture and other ill-treatment, particularly in Thailand’s southern border provinces;
- the right to be free from arbitrary detention;
- the situation of enforced disappearances and the related problem of impunity for state officials; and
- freedom of expression and censorship.
