Following the death of inmate rebel Netiporn” Boong” Sanesangkhom on Tuesday, activists have increased their calling for the transfer of young political prisoners.

Nattawut Saikuar, a previous crimson- top head, posted his condolences on Twitter.

” No one is supposed to die for thinking differently”, he wrote.

He urged the government to discharge all kids already facing charges under Section 112 of the Criminal Code, the lese-majeste laws, and expressed his hope that Netiporn’s passing may get the last of its kind.

Pannika Wanich, a key part of the Progressive Movement, wrote on social press:” Do we need to wait for another suicide, so people may understand? People with opposing viewpoints should not be imprisoned or die.

” Rights for loan may be granted to people. Three people are currently on poverty cuts, of which three are already in prison, she continued.

Netiporn, 28, went into respiratory arrest at the Central Correctional Hospital only after 6am Tuesday. At 11.22 a.m., she was transported to Thammasat University Hospital, where she was later declared dead.

Lawyers claimed Netiporn had been greatly weakened by the earlier hunger strike, despite the Department of Corrections ‘ claim that she had been eating typically in recent weeks.

On January 27, Netiporn launched a hunger strike to demand the release of social prisoners and their loan. She was imprisoned after her bail was revoked in connection with a lese-majeste command she was facing.

Wednesday at 9am at Thammasat University Hospital will be the subject of an examination to determine the death’s precise reason. Family people and doctors have been invited to see, said Justice Minister Tawee Sodsong, who expressed the president’s apologies.

In a democracy, the criticism Move Forward Party stated on its Facebook page that it is firmly convinced that all people should have access to the same right, independence, and freedom of expression.

Every party should build a safe haven for everyone to escape the political turmoil, particularly by granting bail to suspects connected to politically sensitive cases, it said.

David Daly, the EU ambassador to Thailand, wrote on social media that he was” saddened by the passing” of Netiporn. Ministers from the US, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands and Sweden posted related information.

On Tuesday night, a few hundred people showed up at lighting rallies in honor of Netiporn at the Bangkok South Criminal Court on Charoen Krung Road and the Criminal Court on Ratchadaphisek Road.

Rangsiman Rome, a well-known Move Forward MP, performed a three- finger welcome at the latter location.

Netiporn was a contentious and outspoken number in the protest movement, even among himself. She frequently received harsh criticism for her violent and combative behavior.

One fresh, ex-activist who fled worldwide last year claimed that Netiporn had manipulated her when she was 16 through” child grooming.”

The advocate said that Netiporn had likewise taken Thanalop” Yok” Phalanchai, a 15- year- ancient who faces a lese- uncorrectable cost, from her parents without their permission.

Thanalop has argued that she never engaged in any self-promotion and that she never was manipulated. She made the announcement earlier this year, however, that she would stop political engagement to concentrate on her research.

Netiporn left her teenage student all of her funds, bank deposits, and other possessions in a will, according to local media reports.
