According to a new report, yes. The Bangkok Post:

Red shirt detainees are being tortured, forced to confess to crimes and jailed without any chance to defend themselves, a damning report reveals.

The National Human Rights Commission subcommittee on civil and political rights concluded its study into the red shirt detentions in June but its findings were not made public until last week.

The study found the Centre for the Resolution of the Emergency Situation had detained 422 people for violating the emergency decree.

The report revealed the red shirt detainees had experienced torture and forced confession, arrest without proper investigation and strong evidence, arbitrary detention, and overcrowded detention facilities.
