Thai Red shirt activist Phontip Weeden reports he has also had the same materials sent from Thailand, according to Andrew MacGregor Marshall.

United Nations Human Rights Commission Concerned
The incident came as the UN Human Rights Office said it was profoundly concerned over continuing reports of enforced disappearances in Southeast Asia. The UN has urgently called on all countries in the region to criminalize the act. Furthermore to ratify the International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance.
About 10 Thai dissidents living in exile in Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia have been victims of enforced disappearance. Even more some were found dead later while others have not been found yet.
Wanchalearm Satsaksit, a Thai dissident living in Cambodia, was abducted in Phnom Penh in June. Thai political activists believe that the case had some connection with the Thai government.
The abduction of Wanchalearm was believed to be the trigger for the current protests against the government. The protesters are demanding an end to government intimidation of its critics, rewriting of the Constitution, dissolving Parliament and reforming the monarchy.
