Charter ‘threatens people’s rights’

Date of Release: 
Feb 18 2016

EXPERTS see a grim future if the latest charter draft is accepted as they say it will entirely block legal options for people to protect the country's natural resources and communal rights.

The Thai Society of Environmental Journalists held a discussion on the issue, entitled "Who is the Person People can Count Upon, when Communal Rights in the Constitution are Gone?" One of the panellists said the people had to help each other because the charter draft does not have any legal instruments to help them.

Environmentalists slam draft charter

The call came Wednesday during a panel held by the Thai Journalists Association.

The panel raised recent concerns over missing community rights in the draft, which shifts the onus to the state to ensure they are protected.
