Mother of detained red shirt to approach court

Phayao Akkad, the mother of a paramedic killed in the 2010 red-shirt crackdown, says she will ask the Criminal Court to grant protection to her son who was taken away and detained by the Army.

Phayao went to the Army Club to ask Army deputy spokesman Colonel Winthai Suwaree about the whereabouts of her son, Natthapat Akhad. She said she was not given an answer.

She said her son was taken away by troops when the red-shirt rally on Utthayan Road was dispersed by troops and she has not heard about him since then.

She would file a complaint with the Criminal Court to grant protection to normal demonstrators who are not leaders of the rally.

Phayao and her son have been campaigning to demand justice for the death of her daughter in the 2010 crackdown.
