The op-ed discusses how in recent months, Thai authorities have shifted their approach to where pro-democracy protesters (formerly detained for protesting) are now largely being released on strict bail conditions to await trial. However, both detention and the current bail conditions fall short of international human rights law standards, in particular Thailand’s treaty obligations under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.
