The niece of an army private beaten to death at the Narathiwat Ratchanakarin army camp in 2011 during a training exercise has asked the Office of the Attorney-General (OAG) for help in a defamation case brought against her by an army officer.

Narissarawan Kaewnopparat, niece of Pvt Wichian Puaksom, submitted a fresh petition Thursday with the OAG asking for fair treatment. She was accompanied by lawyer Natthasiri Berkman from the Cross-Cultural Foundation and an Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights official.

Phanchot Boonsiri, who heads the investigation section of the OAG, received the complaint from Ms Narisarawan.
