Diplomacy: UK Thai Embassy deny visa for mother of Abhisit crack-down slain victim to testify in UK

By Tammy, Thai Intel’s humanity journalist

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.

Facebook and Twitter are filled at out-raged at the UK Embassy in Thailand-with many just simply saying that at least the UK Embassy should come out and say why the visa was not granted.

“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.
