We at PPT wanted to post this update on Ampol Tangnopakul’s case earlier, but the bombings took up our space and reading time.
Sadly, Ampol (known as Ah Kong) has departed this life, having died of cancer while in custody in 2012. He was in jail because he had been sentenced for lese majeste. Some might have thought that that would have been the end of the case.
However, as reported at Prachatai, Ah Kong’s wife Rosmalin Tangnopakul has continued to “pursue a case against the Department of Corrections of Thailand at the Civil Court over her husband’s death.”
