“The disappearance of Sombath (co-organizer of the AEPF event in 2012) 6 years back along with the political situation in Thailand, Cambodia & Myanmar are the urgent issues we need to address.”
Andy Rutherford, International Organising Committee member at the opening session of the 12th AEPF, 29 October 2018.
“As long as I am alive, I won’t remain silent. I will speak. If this could happen to Sombath, it could happen to anyone. I want all of you to be the voice in your community.”
Ng Shui Meng, wife of Sombath Somphone, at same event.
