“The SCA encourages the NHRCT to expand upon its activities in relation to all human rights issues, in particular monitoring the respect for the right to peaceful assembly and the protection of human rights defenders in that context. It should ensure that it is utilising the full breadth of its mandate to deal with these issues, including the formulation of recommendations that are in line with international human rights standards. All statements and reports should be made publicly available, as this will contribute to the credibility and independence of the institution, as well as promote its accessibility to all people in Thailand.”
