Request for thai inquest into deaths

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs sent a diplomatic note to the Thai government last week requesting investigations into two incidents in which Thai soldiers allegedly killed two Cambodian loggers. The incidents, both of which occurred last month in Thai territory across the border from Banteay Meanchey province, demand attention from Thai authorities and may constitute human rights violations, Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesman Koy Kuong said Wednesday. ”We requested that Thai authorities launch an investigation of the cases to bring the perpetrators to face the law, and to take suitable measures to prevent such inhumane and cruel acts from happening again in the future,” he said. More than 20 Cambodian civilians have been shot and killed by Thai soldiers along the countries’ shared border since 2008, according to local rights group Adhoc.
