The mother of a slain victim, a nurse, helping the Red Shirts protest at the Wat Vanaram Royal Refuge seek shelter from the Thai military crack-down-said today her application to visit the UK at the invitation of the UK upper-house-to testify to its human rights body-was not granted by the UK Embassy in Bangkok.
“I have known from the start that the Thai government will try to stop me from going to the UK and testify, but this move to deny me the visa, points to the level of influences the powers at be in Thailand have over the UK,” said the mother of the slain victim.
“The royalty in the two countries are close and the Thai prime minister is a UK graduate,” summarized most of the postings on Facebook and Twitter.
