Lahu Man Run Down and Killed by Thai Police

This Lahu man was chased down very difficult roads. He was driving a motorbike near his village, and the police spotted him very early in the morning and began chasing him in a truck. They chased him past Ah Yeh Akha village on the far side of the mountain, killed him when he probably ran out of gas, and threw him and his motorbike off a cliff. On the way back they ran into Ah Yeh, the 21 year old Akha boy who was going to buy broom, and they stold his money from him and murdered him next to his truck.

The Thais can never make up for the cruelty, the murder, that they have done to the mountain people.
