Joint Submission to the UN Universal Periodic Review Working Group of the Human Rights Council, 12th Session re: human rights violations associated with Thailand’s anti-drug laws

Voir ce en Français

Human rights violations committed in the name of drug control are common in Thailand, including the unlawful application of the death penalty and the denial of the highest attainable standard of health and numerous concerns with respect to compulsory treatment. Capital punishment is regularly imposed on people convicted of drug-related offences and the government has failed to adequately deliver evidence-based interventions that are proven to reduce the transmission of blood-borne viruses and bacterial infections. There are also concerns with respect the number of women in prison, particularly for drug-related offences.
