Shui-Meng Ng

Shui-Meng Ng is the wife of disappeared Laotian activist Sombath Somphone, who has not been seen since he was kidnapped in December 2012. Ng, who is originally from Singapore, has CCTV video footage of the government agents taking her husband in front of a police post, but officials refuse to admit any complicity. Sombath is an internationally acclaimed community organizer and civil society leader in Laos. Since his arrest, Ng has campaigned around the world for her husband’s release. Laos has been a communist one-party dictatorship since 1975, and is one of the most corrupt countries in the world. Freedom House ranks the country as one of the “worst of the worst” in terms of fundamental freedoms.
