Abhisit and the slippery eel

19 09 2012

The Bangkok Post has a short story stating that former premier Abhisit Vejjajiva has scolded his former minion at the now defunct but not forgotten Centre for the Resolution of Emergency Situations, Tharit Pengdit.

Tharit was boss at the Department of Special Investigation under Abhisit and surprisingly remained in that post under Yingluck Shinawatra. It seems that the Puea Thai Party recognized that Tharit was slippery enough to squirm and turn in their direction, even if he was throwing red shirts in jail at Abhisit’s direction until the July 2011 election.

Abhisit must also have known that Tharit was as slippery as an eel. Now that Tharit is threatening DSI investigations that could see Abhisit and other members of his government investigated for murder, Abhisit has tried to grab the eel again, reminding Tharit of his culpability:

Mr Abhisit said Mr Tarit had probably forgotten the fact that the DSI chief was also a member of the CRES at the time. If the CRES is prosecuted in relation to the taxi driver’s death, the DSI chief could be regarded as a suspect as well.

Abhisit is right, and the idea of the eel interrogating himself in his bathroom mirror each morning comes to mind. DSI is being asked to further investigate and discussions of deals and justice/justice denied continue.
