Activists call to Khlong Prem, to mark one year of Da Torpedo’s imprisonment
A group of activists called Social Move has sent emails inviting the public to visit Daranee Charnchoengsilapakul at Khlong Prem Prison, at 9.30-11.30 am on July 30, to give her moral support.
Daranee aka Da Torpedo was arrested and detained on July 22, 2008, on lèse majesté charges for what she said in a public speech during a political rally at Sanam Luang in mid 2008. The court has denied her bail and ordered the hearings be held in secret, claiming the case concerns national security.
The hearings of witnesses for the prosecution were held on June 23-25, and witnesses for the defence will testify on July 28 and Aug 5.
The activists ask those who join the activity to bring flowers and banners in support of Daranee.
