THAILAND: Groups call for release of senior ‘Nation’ reporter

MEDIA GROUPS called yesterday for the immediate release of senior Nation reporter Pravit Rojanaphruk, who is being held by the National Council for Peace and Order.

Today, The Nation will submit a letter addressed to Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha, who is also head of the NCPO, requesting Pravit’s immediate release.

The Thai Journalists Association (TJA) released a statement yesterday urging the NCPO to free Pravit and clarify its action, which “not only threatened the Thai people’s right of expression but also affected the country’s image”.
