Human Rights Watch called on Thai authorities on Wednesday to immediately find the murderer of environmental activist Prajob Naowa-opas, who was shot dead in front of witnesses in Chachoengsao on Monday. 

"The cold-blooded killing of Prajob marks yet another example of the fundamental failure of Thai authorities to protect activists who risk their lives while defending their communities," Brad Adams, Asia director at Human Rights Watch, said.

"The government must undertake a serious investigation to bring those responsible for his death to justice, regardless of the status or political affiliation of the killers."
