Subject: Contacting a relative in Belgium

 

Your Excellency:

 

A family in Thailand would be grateful for your assistance in contacting a loved one in Belgium.

 

Efforts to contact Mr. Chanyut Chokjanphen, age 20, directly by telephone and by mail and indirectly through acquaintances and the police in Belgium have failed.

 

The family fears for Mr. Chanyut’s life and safety.

Mr. Chanyut has tried several times in recent years to contact his family by telephoning neighbors in Thailand.

 

According to several Thais in Antwerp, Mr. Chanyut has lived and worked in a local Thai restaurant for the past four or five years. But a check of restaurants serving Thai food in Antwerp has turned up no trace of him.

The Antwerp city government and city police recently provided an official address for Mr. Chanyut but acquaintances in Antwerp who went to the address reported that he did not live there.

 

The Antwerp telephone directory does not list a number for Mr. Chanyut but lists a number at the address for a person who the police claim lives with him. The phone never answers and recorded messages left at the number for Mr. Chanyut to call back have not been answered.

 

The city police claim that they have investigated the matter and that Mr. Chanyut does not want to speak to his family. The police are beneath contempt. This is an obvious lie, as Chanyut’s attempts to contact the family by telephone make clear.

 

The family hopes that you can obtain an appropriate response from officials in Belgium. Please inquire into

Mr. Chanyut’s whereabouts and request that he be put in contact with his family.

 

Mr. Chanyut can call his family at the following telephone number: 66 – 08 -  9501 - 4780. A translator fluent in Dutch, English, French and Thai will be present.

Mr. Chanyut should contact the above email addresses to arrange live audio-visual communication in order to confirm first hand that he is alive and to describe himself the conditions he is living in.

 

Mr. Chanyut is domiciled in Non Pa Sang Township of Pha Khao District of Loei Province . He is now subject to conscription by the army. He should call the township headman, Mr. Boonthom Ragkaew, at 66 - 87 - 214 - 1383 and 66 – 85 - 756 - 5799, and leave a telephone number and address at which he can be contacted.

 

Please do not refer this matter to non-governmental organizations.

 

For additional details please feel free to contact me, preferably by email.

 

You can consult recent correspondence with Belgian officials on the website  http://members.tripod.com/chanyut_1/foryourreference/ .

 

On behalf of the Chokjanphen family, I am,

 

Sincerely yours,

 

J. Rosemont
