Thailand: Lift rights restrictions that stifle dialogue during transition

, Index number: ASA 39/7463/2017

Amnesty International calls on the Thai government to immediately lift arbitrary restrictions on the human rights to freedom of expression, peaceful assembly and association and to revoke the power of military authorities to enforce these restrictions through arbitrary arrest, detention and prosecution. The suppression of freedom of speech and other civil and political rights by Thai authorities is inconsistent with Thailand’s obligations under international law and threatens to undermine a planned transition to civilian government.
