Thailand | Former chief of NP, 3 other employees charged in murder of environmental activist

BANGKOK — A Thai court on Monday issued arrest warrants for the former head of a major national park and three park employees accused of killing an ethnic Karen environmental activist.


The Department of Special Investigation announced that a special court for state officials approved the warrants in the case of Porlajee Rakchongcharoen, who was last seen in the custody of Kaeng Krachan National Park officials in western Thailand in April 2014. The four face several related charges as well, including holding a person against his will, robbery and concealing a corpse.
