Four Akha Accused of Drug Trafficking Without Evidence
Ampur Mae Faluang PolicePolice come to Bpah Mah Hahn Akha and forced four Akhas to pose for a picture as "drug suspects" while having no charges and no case against them. When the four protested to the government office the administrators said that being "singled out" was no big deal. For the Akha involved this is a big deal. Harrassment such as this disrupts the village, wastes the time of farmers and costs them money going more than two hour's drive to the local government office to try and clear their names.
