NDM demands whole truth about the fatal shooting of hilltribe activist



The New Democracy Movement has demanded the whole truth about the “extra-judicial killing” of a wellknown hilltribe activist accused by police of resisting arrest and attempting to hurl a hand grenade at policemen.

In a statement issued on Monday regarding the death of Chaiyaphum Pasae, a 17-year old Lahu activist on March 17, the NDM said that it had doubt about the clarification of the police regarding the shooting incident.

Police claimed that Chaiyaphum was sitting next to Pongnai Saengtala, the driver of a car suspected of carrying methamphetamine. When the police stopped the car in Chiang Dao district of Chiang Mai in order to carry out a search, Chaiyaphum alighted from the car and tried to escape by running into the woods and police gave chase.

Police claimed that Chaiyaphum tried to hurl a hand grenade at the police who shot him dead in an act of self-defence. About 2,000 methamphitamine pills were seized from the car.

The movement demanded public prosecutors and local officials to join police inquiry officers and a doctor in carrying out an autopsy of the victim’s body. It also demanded safety for the arrested car driver.

Pol Maj-Gen Panudet Boonruang, deputy commissioner of Region Five Provincial Police Bureau, urged netizens to use sound judgement in their access to report in the social media about the incident which tend to blame the authorities for overacting in their fatal shooting of the activist.

He said that the police had to shoot Chaiyaphum in self defence because the latter tried to hurl a hand grenade at them.

Chaiyaphum used to represent the Ton Kla youth network in Chiang Rai and was actively involved in civic activities. He won the Special White Elephant award for a short movie at the 16th Short Film and Video Festival and was involved in the production of several documentaries aired by Thai PBS.

Witness Says Soldiers Shot Lahu Activist as He Fled Beating

Teeranai Charuvastra
Khao Sod English

BANGKOK — The army’s account about the chain of events which led to shooting a Lahu ethnic activist to death last week at a checkpoint was disputed by an eyewitness who said he saw the whole thing.

The witness said in a television interview that soldiers physically assaulted Chaiyaphum Pasae and then shot him to death when he tried to run away. That directly contradicted the military’s version in which Chaiyaphum, a campaigner for stateless people’s rights, brandished a hand grenade at an army checkpoint, forcing the soldiers at a checkpoint and was shot to death in self-defense.

At first authorities said there wasn't CCTV at the scene, then said the CCTV video substantiated the official version of the event... so far this video hasn't been released.

They need to prove their version : show the weird financial moves that led you to this guy, release the video. Evidence that couldn't be staged like drugs found afterward at home or in the car, to easy to plant it to "prove" they were right...

^ The top brass are also saying if you vilify the soldier who did the shooting you will make other soldiers scared to shoot in future and thus endanger their lives.
Eh what? Let him off from murder so as to encourage other murders?

Bottom line.
Dictatorial oligarchies aren't required to justify nor answer to anyone within the public sphere.

NHRC calls on government to release video footage caught at site of fatal shooting of Lahu activist



The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) today called on the Government to release a video footage caught by a security camera at the road checkpoint where a Lahu hill tribe activist youth was shot dead by soldiers in Chiang Dao district of Chiang Mai province recently.

The call was made after the NHRC team last weekend inspected the shooting scene and visited the activist Chaiyaphum Pasae’s home in a fact-finding mission to see if the fatal shooting was over acted.

Authorities claimed the shooting happened after the activist resisted the search and tried to throw a hand grenade at authorities trying to arrest him after drugs were found in his car.

After the site inspection, NHRC representative Mrs Tuenjai Deethes said what the public wanted to know and explanations are evidence to support claims by authorities that the killed activist youth had 2,800 methamphetamines in his car, and the hand grenade that he threatened to throw at pursuing authorities.

She said she would demand the release of the video footage from the Third Army Region commander and evidence of money transactions in his bank accounts to support claim that they were from drug trade.
