Thai Patriots Network activist Ratree Pipattanapaiboon has talked about her experience while serving two years out of a six-year prison term in Cambodia on charges of illegal entry, spying and entering a military area without permission. Three days after being granted a royal pardon, Ms Ratree looked back at her gruelling time behind bars after she and six other Thais, were arrested on Dec 29, 2010. She spoke to ASTV's Kon Cha Thueng Chan (Before Monday) TV show on Sunday night. Here are excerpts from her interview.
