Influential persons suspected of killing prominent conservation leader

Relatives accuse illegal loggers

A prominent leader of the Lampang forest conservation group has been shot dead. Following his death, relatives and villagers carried the coffin containing 58 year old Suraphon Sirichan to the provincial governor, urging him to take urgent action to apprehend influential illegal log dealers who they claim masterminded the August 11 killing.

Suraphon, the headman of Moo 7 village, tambon Mae Mog in Thoen district, was ambushed and shot dead by an unknown number of killers. To date, 17 representatives of villagers have been murdered for standing up to ensure justice for their communities. All these crimes have taken place during the term of office of the present government which has a much vaunted policy to suppress influential people in society.
