Theresa May calls for “free and open elections” in Thailand

British Prime Minister Theresa May yesterday called for “free and open elections” in Thailand as she met Prime Minister Gen Prayut Chan-o-cha in London. A small Pro Democracy group and Human rights group were also there to welcome him with banners announcing the Junta was not welcome! The groups were joined by Boyne Annesley, the father of Christina Annesley who was found dead in her hotel room on Koh Tao in January 2015. Like many of the other families of young people who lost their lives in Koh Koh, widely dubbed as ‘Death Island’, Boyne is less than satisfied with the police investigation and earlier this year handed in a petition to Downing Street with other victims families asking the Government to look into suspicious deaths in Thailand.
“The prime minister urged continued progress towards free and open elections in Thailand in line with international standards, including restriction on political parties being lifted at an early stage,” British media quoted her spokesman as saying.
From London, Prayut will proceed to Paris where he will meet French President Emmanuel Macron.
