Thailand: The Bangkok Massacres – A Call for Accountability

On July 22, 2010, Amsterdam & Partners launched a seminal White Paper highlighting the crimes against humanity committed by the Thai Army against peaceful protesters and bystanders during the April-May 2010 Bangkok massacre. The White Paper highlighted Thailand’s obligations under International Law to allow independent and impartial bodies to investigate and prosecute all responsible parties for the killings of at least 91 Thai citizens.

Speaking at the time of the launch of the paper, Robert Amsterdam said, “The recent violence in Thailand is part of a larger campaign of political persecution designed to eliminate the movement calling for restoration of the basic right to self-determination through genuine elections.”
