The latest attack on Sirawith “Ja New” Seritiwat left the anti-junta activist in ICU with a broken nose and cheekbone, and needing an operation to fix his broken right eye socket, the Thai Lawyers for Human Rights group said on Saturday. Sirawith was assaulted by four unidentified men with baseball bats in Bangkok on Friday morning. They were wearing helmets and riding motorbikes with no licence plates.
Sirawith helped organise the concert, named “Democracy 24 June: What’s day?”, to mark the 87th anniversary of the Siamese Revolution of 1932 that overthrew absolute monarchy and replaced it with constitutional rule.
