Ratsada Manuratsada, representing the families of Abe and Chaiyaphum, went to Civil Court in Bangkok yesterday with Amema Saemu and Napoi Pasae, the mothers of two Lahu villagers slain by military officers in 2017, to file a civil lawsuit against the Army. Ratsada said his clients have the right to seek compensation as per the Liability for Wrongful Act of Officials Act, under which official agencies have to make reparations for the wrongdoings of their officers.

The menacing drumbeat of child … [Read more...] about Who killed Atlanta’s children?
