112WATCH Featured in German Media
April 20, 2023
Founder of 112WATCH, Pavin Chachavalpongpun, gave an interview to DW on the problem with Article 112 – an issue that has seriously violated human rights.
Thai politicians and Western governments alike have avoided a direct interference into the application of law for fear of retribution and out of favour of the Thai monarchy.
Quoted from DW:
Pavin, who has lived in exile since 2014, is a co-founder of 112Watch, a group that campaigns for legal reform. Lese majeste is formally defined by Article 112 of the Thai Criminal Code.
"In my opinion, Western governments must focus on the law mainly, or even help support reform of the law, as requested by the young generation in Thailand," Chachavalpongpun told DW.
