Once the interrogation room doors shut behind Attasith Nussa, eight plainclothes officers descended upon him quickly.
The leading officer approached the 35-year-old Thai pro-democracy protester and asked him if he came alone to the October 29 vigil in Bangkok.
Attasith said the same officer, dressed in a button-up shirt, then replied, “‘Well it’s good that you travelled alone. This way we can say you died in a motorcycle accident when they ask what happened to you.’”
Not long after the verbal threats started, violence ensued. Over the next hour, Attasith endured a brutal torture session.
The incident has left him angry and confused. He now wants to change the police system so this doesn’t continue to happen to anyone else.
