Chiang Rai students
18 Oct 2010
A student and two red shirts in Chiang Rai have been arrested for selling flip-flops printed with the face of Abhisit Vejjajiva. This is the second time the high school student has been arrested; in July he joined four college students in staging a protest in the town against the government crackdown on the red shirts in Ratchaprasong and the Emergency Decree.

The mother of the high school student has been told by the Provincial Juvenile Centre not to send her son for psychotherapy scheduled for next Monday and Tuesday, as her son has been found to be normal. The Director of the Centre insists that the agency has followed procedures without discrimination. The Centre’s findings from its examination of the student will be sent to police to be forwarded to the prosecution.
