Read the report (pdf)

Two PHR researchers report from Thailand that actions by anti-government protesters — who first blockaded and later forcibly entered and searched a major hospital in central Bangkok in April 2010 — were a gross violation of humanitarian principles. The report also expresses grave concern over the failure of Thai security forces to provide adequate protection to medical personnel and patients.
