Apiwan was a prominent Red Shirt leader. He was member of the Pheu Thai Party of former Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra, and a member of the Thai parliament and served as Yingluck's Deputy Prime Minister. The military government that deposed the elected government in May, 2014, charged Apiwan with Lese Majeste for allegedly insulting the Thai Monarchy. Rather than face the charges, Apiwan fled Thailand to the Philippines. He died of a lung infection in the Philippines on Oct 6. The military government gave his family permission to bring him back to Thailand for the funeral. [Photo/IC]
