The military has harassed Boonyuen Siritum, a consumer rights and energy reform activist and former senator at her house in a bid to suppress rallies on energy reform. Eight military officers on Wednesday morning raided the house of the former elected senator for Samut Songkhram Province and accused her of inciting people to stage rallies and being unusually rich. The officers searched the house in Samut Songkhram’s Muang District without warrant, claiming that they can search any house under martial law.
