The Thai People's Party requests that Thailand resolve the issue of repatriation of PDFs arrested in Thailand
The Commoners' Party announced that the arrest of three PDF soldiers who were arrested in Thailand and their return to Myanmar violated the Anti-Torture Act.
This is being published after reports that the army killed PDF soldiers after they were sent back, and we have requested clarification on this matter.
The Thai People's Party said that the Thai People's Party needs to clearly understand that the soldiers arrested by Thai immigration and sent back to Myanmar are the Civilian Defense Force that rose up to fight the atrocities of the military council.
According to Article 13 of the Geneva Convention (3), this act is a violation of the law of war, and torture and this kind of deportation is war crimes, according to the statement of the Thai People's Party.
This is said to have contributed to the brutality committed by the Burmese Military Council, which is accused of war crimes.
Last April (5th) in Me Sauk, Turk Province, three PDF soldiers were arrested by the Thai Immigration Office when they came to receive medical treatment and were turned over to the BGF under the Military Council.
It is stated that arresting and repatriating the PDF soldiers violated international and domestic law, so the public is requested to resolve it legally.
