The Article 112 Project publishes first volume of Arnon Nampa’s Letters from Prison

Arnon Nampa (อานนท์ นำภา), a Thai lawyer, poet, father and human rights defender, was recently imprisoned following conviction of violation of Article 112 in Thailand.  Arnon soon began writing letters from prison, which were then disseminated via social media by his family and supporters. The letters are a record of both the injustice of the judicial process and how one human rights defender is holding the line against this injustice. The record of his life and struggle in the letters is also an essential history of Thailand. The Article 112 Project, part of the Justice in Southeast Asia Lab (JSEALab) at UW-Madison, is translating these letters from Thai into English. This is the first volume of Arnon’s prison letters; the twenty-five letters in this collection were written between 3 October and 15 November 2023.
