British rights activist charged with defamation in Thailand

Andy Hall works in Myanmar and Thailand on migration policy issues, and serves as Global Affairs Advisor to the Migrant Worker Rights Network, a Myanmar migrant worker membership based organization with over 2,500 members, based in Mahachai, Samut Sakorn, Thailand and Yangon, Myanmar.. In May 2012, Hall organised Myanmar opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi’s globally publicised visit to a migrant community in Mahachai, Samut Sakorn, Thailand. Since 2007, Hall has voluntarily advised and assisted Thailand’s largest independent union confederation, the State Enterprise Workers Relations Confederation of Thailand (SERC), as an International Affairs Advisor.

Human rights defenders in Thailand face threats, physical assaults, arbitrary detention, judicial harassment, and extrajudicial killings. HRDs most at risk include those working with migrants, particularly along the border with Burma, those who are fighting for economic, social, and cultural (ESC) rights, and those working in the conflict zone of the three border provinces in Southern Thailand.
