The 88 Generation Peace and Open Society’s objection against death sentences of two Myanmar migrant workers
We learned that the Thai court sentenced two Myanmar migrant workers to death on 24th December 2015 after convicting them of murders of two British citizens, Mr. David Miller and Ms. Hannah Witheridge, on Koh Tao Island.
This verdict came out despite international lawyers and human rights groups publicly pointed out the Myanmar migrant workers were wrongly accused by Thai Police, there was a lack of key witnesses, and flaws in DNA tests and procedures of forensic pathologists during the police investigation occured.
This case proves that the Thai judiciary has weaknesses and there is a significant ground for international criticism. We want our citizens to enjoy justice and the right to fair trial.
Hence, we, THE 88 GENERATION (Peace and Open Society) hereby object those death sentences of two Myanmar migrant workers. We urge you to pay an utmost attention to review this case and the verdict.
