PPT is very pleased to be able to report that, according to the Bangkok Post, academic-for-hire Panitan Wattanayagorn, who was one of former premier Abhisit Vejjajiva mouthpieces, always “acting” government spokesman, deputy spokesman of the horrid Centre for the Resolution of the Emergency Situation (CRES), and a man who was paid to lie, is to soon to appear before the Department of Special Investigation.
That said, he has reportedly “deferred his appointment with the Department of Special Investigation for his role in the April-May 2010 bloody crackdown until Sept 24.” We can’t wait for this affront to all that an academic should be – principled, conducting research, and fearless in revealing truth – is to be made to account for his activities with military and the Abhisit regime.
This “professor” is now back with Chulalongkorn University’s Faculty of Political Science used that job to his own advantage – as he has done all along – claiming he couldn’t appear at DSI because “the faculty was holding examinations for its students.” That kind of pathetic excuse is Panitan’s chief characteristic.
Panitan says DSI “wanted to ask him about detailed information on how he performed his duties when he served as Mr Abhisit’s deputy secretary-general , which oversaw military operations against the red-shirt protesters. The agency also wanted to know where he obtained information used during the CRES’s operations.” We’d all like to know more about Panitan’s activities.
In his usual slithering style, Panitan has already made the claim that the DSI investigation of the 2010 political violence would only be useful if conducted “in a straightforward manner, without discrimination,” which has also been Abhisit’s claim. He also made claims about “justice,” a term that Panitan has not demonstrated any understanding when working for military and Abhisit’s regime.
