The military has refused to reveal footage of the summary execution of a Lahu activist, saying it might confuse the investigation process. On 27 March 2016, the 3rd Region Army chief Lt Gen Vijak Siribansop said the military has already sent to the police CCTV evidence of the checkpoint where Lahu activist Chaiyapoom Pasae was executed. The military therefore has no authority to reveal the evidence to the public without court permission.
