SIHRG observers have completed a trial observation of two Burmese migrants on trial on the island of Koh Samui Thailand for the murder of two British citizens last summer. The verdict of guilty and death penalties was delivered on Christmas Eve. SIHRG is considering its report on the proceedings.

The FINAL REPORT of Trial Observers from SIHRG was published in June 2015 on proceedings against Egyptian civil society activist Alaa Abd El-Fattah. This report was drawn to the attention of Prime Minister of the UK David Cameron in a letter from the President of EuroMed Rights timed to co-incide with the visit of Egypt President el-Sisi in November 2015. See the letter HERE
