Thailand. This is beyond tragic.
At a brainstorming session, the representative from the Office of Narcotics Control Board yesterday disclosed that some 1,400 people were killed and labelled as drug suspects though they had no link to drugs.
“The government’s drug policy was unclear. Operation staff hence did everything to achieve the goal of reducing the number of drug traffickers,” the representative said. “The death toll was highest in February when the policy was first implemented. The number of deaths came down in the next two months.”
