Auf den Briten warten übrigens noch weitere Gerichtsverfahren. {--

Zitat
However, Hall is still set to stand trial in a civil defamation case that begins Oct. 30 at Nakhon Pathom Court. A third trial addressing alleged violations of Thailand’s Computer Crimes Act is set for Nov. 17, and another civil suit hasn’t yet been scheduled.

Seit 3 Jahren zieht sich nun der Verleumdungsprozess der Dosenananasfirma "Natural Fruit" gegen Andy Hall hin:

Nun gibt es einen Wink vom Justizministerium, er möge sich "versöhnlich" geben und beim morgigen Urteilsverkündungstag eine aussergerichtliche Einigung ermöglichen.


Justice Ministry just sent me this message requesting I reconcile/compromise with ‪#‎naturalfruit‬ at court tomorrow. Ridiculous to suggest I should reconcile/compromise with a company #naturalfruit that wants me in jail for legitimate research ‪#‎freeandyhall‬ Recommend Thai Justice Ministry send message loud & clear to #naturalfruit 'drop all the charges against Andy Hall.' Am confident of victory






This negotiation stage with Natural Fruit has been going on for 3 years already. Many meetings, many conversations, many discussions and every time Natural Fruit said they would 'accept only an apology from me to them that my research was wrong' to drop the cases. Negotiations prior to the Aljazeera trial, negotiations at Nakhon Pathom civil court etc. I have also made my approaches known to Natural Fruit with a positive intention to end these cases several times, to end the cases that are wasting time of many people for no good reason. A recent message floated around was that if I apologised, Natural Fruit would kindly only charge me the exorbitant fees they have been paying their legal team. That is not on the table as an option. The fact Ministry of Justice think I or my team should be raising the issue of negotiation or compromise again tomorrow at court during my indictment is completely out of the question now. At this stage there are only two options. (1) NF drop this most serious case and withdraw the other 3 cases and appeals; OR (2) It goes to a full trial. If it is option (1) there is a chance my legal team will not launch the counter prosecutions against the company, the Prakanong prosecutor and the Attorney General's office that we are currently preparing, just a chance. If (2), then there is no going back anymore I am confident of victory and I will win this case as I have done no wrong beyond legitimate research in the public interest. However to strengthen the rule of law (and not out of revenge or ill feeling, as I have no negative feelings towards the company or its management, only compassion), I shall then be launching a number of counter prosecutions against all those involved in this judicial harassment as a means to deter others from undertaking such actions in the future against human rights defenders in Thailand.

Zum Fall Andy Hall, der ziemlich viel Wirbel gemacht hat.



http://www.bangkokpost.com/opinion/opinion/1093677/a-very-un-thai-affair-andy-hall-and-natural-fruit




Gemäss englischem Zeitungsbericht

https://www.theguardian.com/global-development-professionals-network/2016/sep/24/rights-activist-andy-hall-loud-persistent-punished-thailand


ist der Schaden für die Ananasfirma "Natural Fruit" nicht durch den Bericht von Andy Hall entstanden sondern dass sich die Firma wiederholt geweigert hatte, ihren Produktionsprozess auditieren zu lassen, worauf ausländische Firmen dann die Lieferverträge dann nicht mehr verlängerten bzw. kündigten.

In einem weiteren Verfahren gegen Andy Hall hatte Thailands oberster Gerichtshof im Berufungsverfahren den Einspruch gegen einen früheren Freispruch bei eine Verleumdungsklage sowohl der betroffenen Dosenananasfabrik "Natural Fruit" wie auch des Generalstaatsanwaltes !! abgeschmettert.

Es stehen jedoch noch 2 weitere Verleumdungsklagen der "Natural Fruit" gegen ihn an

Der prominente Arbeitsnehmeraktivist Andy Hall hat angesichts einer neu anrollenden Verleumdungsprozesslawine gegen ihn heute nacht Thailand verlassen und wird sobald nicht wiederkommen

Vom Flughafen aus veröffentlichte er folgende Erklärung:


07.11.2016
Public Statement on Leaving Thailand: 7th November 2016

It was indeed a welcome development that the Supreme Court of Thailand issued its judgment on 3rd November 2016 at Prakanong Court dismissing, after almost 4 years at a final stage of appeal, a criminal defamation case against me. In this case I was prosecuted as a researcher and migrant activist for criminal defamation by Thailand’s Attorney General and Public Prosecutor, as joint plaintiffs with Natural Fruit Company Ltd. This case related to an interview I gave to Aljazeera in Yangon in 2013 in which I explained about research I conducted on alleged migrant worker rights abuses in Thailand’s food processing industry and my experience of the response by Natural Fruit Company Ltd. in criminally prosecuting me.

As an individual and as an international affairs advisor to the Migrant Worker Rights Network (MWRN) and the State Enterprise Worker Relations Confederation (SERC), I have been dedicated to working as a human rights defender and activist for over 11 years. My goal has always been to improve living and working conditions of millions of exploited migrant workers in Thailand and ensure these workers access fully labour rights and other rights they are entitled under Thai law. However, in the end, the situation has not worked out as I planned or hoped. This work has entailed many personal challenges. I have in particular encountered insurmountable challenges with some companies and establishments.

For instance, on 20th September 2016 the Bangkok South Criminal Court issued its judgment convicting me for criminal defamation and computer crimes. This conviction resulted from a case prosecuted against me in relation to the publication of a report by Finnwatch on the situation of migrant worker rights violations in Thailand’s pineapple industry. I was a researcher providing raw data for this report and I did not analyse this data, write the report or publish it. However I was sentenced as defendant in this case to 4 years imprisonment and a 200, 000 baht fine. As I was seen to have given beneficial evidence at my trial in a case which also lasted for almost 4 years, I was given a 25% reduction in sentence to 3 years imprisonment and a 150, 000 baht fine. The court suspended my imprisonment sentence for 2 years on the basis that I was an activist working for public benefit. I shall appeal against this conviction once my lawyers receive the judgment.

In addition to these personal cases, recently it has been necessary for me to work with MWRN to support a case where migrant workers by necessity had to prosecute a chicken farm owner in Lopburi Province providing poultry to Betagro for export overseas. This case is now resulting in additional criminal prosecutions and threats of even more extensive litigation in Thailand’s Courts of Justice. When taken together, this ongoing, costly and extensive litigation on migrant labour issues creates challenges that critically prevent in many ways enhancement of migrant worker rights in Thailand.

Of course, in some situations the Thai government cooperates and assists to promote enhancement of migrant worker rights. I accept that in some circumstances and in certain issues or cases, the situation of migrant workers in Thailand has significantly improved. Credit should be given for this visible improvement. This genuine improvement has only occurred however when civil society and the Thai trade union movement has worked together in collaboration and harmony with more progressive employers, industries and establishments as well as with the Thai Government and overseas buyers.

Importantly on a personal level however, currently the situation in defending migrant worker rights for me and others who act as human rights defenders in similar situations has rapidly deteriorated in Thailand with significantly increased risks and aggressiveness evident. As a result, I want to ensure time for existing tense situations of conflict to reduce as well as provide time and space for the many parties to these existing disputes to fully understand the importance of migrant worker rights and the necessity for human rights defenders like myself to have their work increasingly promoted and protected. Only if such a positive situation is developed can people like myself work genuinely and most productively, free from threats and intimidation and without endless prosecutions that prevent our work from proceeding effectively.

I have discussed carefully and over a period of time with my colleagues and my legal team a plan to leave Thailand without specifying a return date given the increasingly negative developments highlighted above. I have now finally decided to leave Thailand today as planned, and with confidence that for now, this is the right decision for me and for MWRN. Concerning counter prosecutions against certain individuals and companies in relation to ongoing judicial harassment against me, I have assigned all authority to act on my behalf in these matters and during my absence from Thailand to my Head Lawyer. Any remaining work that I am responsible for has been assigned to MWRN’s team.

EXCLUSIVE-Prominent UK rights activist, fearing for safety, leaves Thailand


"The situation is not good right now. It's rapidly deteriorating. It doesn't feel safe. There are people who are intent on wearing me down."

"The reason I'm leaving is they said in court they're going to file a new criminal case against me, because it comes with all the restrictions - I'm not willing to be subjected to that criminal process again, and I'm also leaving because of the security issues."

Der britische Bürgerrechtler Andy Hall (37) verlässt heute Thailand. Er ist der nächste westliche Aktivist, der aus Angst um sein Leben und „aus Furcht vor Repressalien mafiöser Kreise‘ (Zitat Hall  vor seiner Abreise in Bangkok) dem Land den Rücken kehrt, in dem er für Menschenrechte von ethnischen Minderheiten gekämpft hat, dessen Sprache er in Wort und Schrift erlernte, in dem er von einflussreichen Großkonzernen beklagt und eingeschüchtert wurde und dessen Generalstaatsanwalt ihn hinter Gittern sehen wollte. Hall gibt auf und mit ihm geht ein Protagonist bürgerlichen Widerstandes.

Der Nordbrite war kein unbeschriebenes Blatt in Thailand. Er hat im weltweit Aufsehen erregenden Doppelmordprozess von Koh Tao als Berater der Verteidigung zweier burmesischer Angeklagter hinter den Kulissen die Strippen gezogen. Trotz ihrer Verurteilung zum Tode konnten die Fremdarbeiter Zaw Lin und Wai Phyo (beide 22) aus Myanmar einen moralischen Sieg für sich verbuchen. Ihr Schicksal und die von Prozessbeobachtern als ‚skandalös und dilettantisch‘ bezeichnete Ermittlung und Verfahrensführung wurden öffentlich...

Die Überschrift "Hall flieht" ist nicht ganz passend, da er legal ausgereist ist.

Die Einmischung der thailändischen Staatsanwaltschaft mit Unterstützung der klagenden Firmen hinterlässt einen faden Beigeschmack. Schliesslich können sich die Firmen selbst juristisch wehren.

Als Generalstaatsanwalt könnte man z.B. eine Anklage gegen den Red Bull Erben auf die Beine stellen, wenn die schon sonst nix zustandebringen...  {--
