Mystery surrounds the disappearance of high-profile Lao activist Sombath Somphone, almost three weeks after he was last seen.
Mr Sombath’s wife, Ng Shui Meng, says police have not contacted her about the case for over a week.
“The CCTV footage shows that he was last stopped at the police post [in the capital Vientiane], that his jeep was driven away by unknown person right at the police post and he was taken away in a truck which stopped at a police post,” Ms Ng told Radio Australia.
The government has denied any involvement, hinting at a possible business or personal conflict as the reason for his disappearance.
