The Multicultural Politic is very pleased to discover that on the evening of Monday 31 May, Dr. Suthachai Yimprasert, the assistant professor at Chulalongkorn University was released.
Dr. Suthachai YimprasertÂ was arbitrarily detained by the Center for the Resolution of the Emergency Situation (CRES)Â on Monday 24th May. His unfair detention sparked a strong response from the academic and Thai solidarity community across the world.
The eight day solidarity campaign brought results! A letter that we have received is published below:
Dear Friends and Colleagues:
Good news! I just talked to Achan Suthachai on the phone. He was taken from Saraburi to Bangkok early this evening and is now at Nang Loeng Police Station to complete the ‘release’ process. Still have no details as to the conditions or causes of this sudden release. More will follow on available.
Thank you all for your kind support!
However there are still many more political prisoners.
The Bangkok Post has credited the strong academic and student pressure as having an effect on his release.
The International Solidarity for Thailand welcomes this good news and will continue its campaign for justice and democracy in Thailand.
