People's Democratic Reform Committee leader Tankhun Jittitsara said living conditions at a military camp where he was detained by the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) were fairly good and there was no torture.
After being released on Thursday, Tankhun said he shared a room with a senior reporter from The Nation on the second floor of a house in a military camp in Saraburi province. Ten people shared the house with four staying in two rooms on the first floor. He spent a lot of time at night chatting with Nation reporter Pravit Rojanaphruk.
He believed he was detained for two reasons: his political involvement as part of the PDRC and opposition to a military coup.
He said before being released, the NCPO had a session with all people to be let go to explain the Council’s ideas – and ask for cooperation. He said he understood the NCPO more but also voiced his concern to the agency.
He and others were asked not to join in political movements or post any provocative messages, he said.
