Cambodia mulls Thai junta’s request for three extraditions

Thu, 27 October 2016

Cambodian authorities are “processing” a request from Thailand’s military government to extradite three Thai citizens for the crime of insulting the monarchy, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said yesterday.

A number of extradition requests – 19 in total – have been made to seven countries for suspects of the widely condemned lese majeste laws in the wake of the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s death.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Chum Sounry yesterday confirmed the government had received a request to extradite three Thai nationals who had fled into Cambodia “for insulting the Thai monarchy”.

“Now the competent authorities are processing this request, so it is not the right time to issue detailed information,” Sounry said, remaining tight-lipped on the details of the alleged offences of the three people.

and from the Bangkok post;
The government has sought cooperation from seven foreign countries to which 19 lese majeste suspects are thought to have fled. It would like them extradited back to Thailand.

Justice Minister Paiboon Koomchaya claimed Wednesday the seven foreign countries has given a positive response, although he refused to give details.

He said the embassies of the countries contacted him directly after he wrote to them last week, asking for their cooperation on the requests to extradite the 19 suspects.

Gen Paiboon said the countries said they understood Thailand's situation and problems the country was facing but the extradition process might hit snags in international law.

The justice minister, however, said he was still hopeful about the chances of extradition, adding the government was reviewing laws relating to the issue.

Gen Paiboon refused to disclose the names of the countries, saying it is a sensitive issue and could affect international relations. The countries are the United States, Britain, Sweden, France, Australia, New Zealand and Japan.
Funny as Cambodia is not mentioned,,,
