Ms. Suthasinee Kaewleklai
On October 24, 2017, Thammakaset filed a criminal complaint with the Lopburi Provincial Court in Thailand, for alleged “co-commission of theft by night” (Articles 334 and 335(1) of the Criminal Code), “receiving stolen property” (Article 357), and “taking away a person’s document, likely to cause damage to that person” (Article 188), against the two workers, Ms. Ye Ye and Mr. Soe Yong. Thammakaset’s complaint also included allegations against Ms. Suthasinee Kaewleklai, a labour rights activist and the Coordinator of the Migrant Workers Rights Network (MWRN), a civil society organisation promoting and protecting the rights of migrant workers, for acting as a co-commissioner, an instigator, or a supporter of the offences mentioned above. On September 3, 2018, during the preliminary hearing, the Lopburi Provincial Court dismissed the merit of the complaint against the two workers and Ms. Suthasinee. Thammakaset appealed the Court’s dismissal. On July 30, 2019, the Court of Appeals upheld the Lopburi Provincial Court’s decision to dismiss the complaint. The judgment is final.
