Thammakaset 2 Thailand Agriculture & livestock Company Response


On March 30, 2020, Thanaporn Saleephol, a former Communications Associate at Fortify Rights in Thailand, was sued by Thammakaset for criminal defamation concerning five social media engagements she posted between November 24, 2019, and January 30, 2020. The posts expressed support for fellow women human rights defenders involved in criminal defamation cases regarding labor rights abuses committed by the Thai poultry company Thammakaset Co. Ltd. A mediation hearing was scheduled for August 5, 2020. If the mediation fails, a preliminary hearing is set for August 17, 2020.
