Authorities repressed peaceful protesters, and detained and launched criminal proceedings against human rights defenders, opposition politicians and other critics for joining peaceful assemblies and expressing critical views of the government, the Constitution, and the monarchy. A series of demonstrations took place in Bangkok and other cities. Official measures to control the COVID-19 pandemic left refugees at heightened risk of refoulement. The courts handed down death sentences, including for murder; a number of death sentences were commuted by royal pardon to life imprisonment.
