Inadequate and Unproductive

39 groups and organisations from across the globe have marked today, the International Day of the Victims of Enforced Disappearances, with a call for action on behalf of Sombath, Dedek Khairudin from Indonesia, Khem Sophath from Cambodia, Porlagee Rakchongcharoen (Billy) from Thailand, Sumlut Roi Ja from Myanmar, Jonas Burgos from the Philippines, and Somchai Neelapaijit from Thailand.

In part, the statement (available here) reads:

Analysis of the CCTV footage shows that Sombath was taken away in the presence of police officers. Despite the Lao Government’s pledge to “thoroughly and seriously” investigate Sombath’s disappearance, the authorities’ probe has been inadequate and unproductive.
