Thailand expected to pass laws making torture, abduction illegal
Al Jazeera, 11 Oct 2021
In a move viewed as long overdue by human rights groups, Thailand’s parliament is expected to pass laws making torture and abduction illegal.
The issue has gained renewed attention recently after a senior police officer was caught on security camera footage appearing to torture a suspect who later died.
Al Jazeera's Scott Heidler reports from Pattani, where there are many accusations of torture by the army.
