Thai Human Rights Commission Blatant Partiality
Ms. Amara's lack of neutrality has caused outrage among civil society, human rights defenders and the families of the victims who were killed by army personnel in the capital city of Thailand.
Mr. Pongpisit Kongsena, the chairman of the People's Power Alliance, was reported saying that NHRC should have stood by the people affected by the 2010 violence, instead of taking sides with the Abhisit's Government that gave the order to launch an attack on the Red Shirt demonstrators and non-Red Shirts.
Over 95 people died, while more than 2,000 people were injured in the crackdown of 2010.
The continuous uproar for the past few days has been on the transparency and accountability of the NHRC and whether the leadership of the organization, which was selected by Abhisit, is reporting based on preconceived judgment or facts.
