Jakrapob Penkair’s case again postponed

15 06 2009

The Bangkok Post’s Breaking News (15 June 2009, click here) reports that the prosecution has again deferred a decision whether to indict former PM’s office minister Jakrapob Penkair on a lesè majesté charge.

The director-general of the Criminal Litigation Department, Kaiyasit Pissawongprakan, said the prosecutors had not received results of an additional examination of the translation of Jakrapob’s speech to the FCCT on 29 August 2007 and additional witness testimony from the police.

No arrest warrant has been issued yet in this case.

A leader of the United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship, Jakrapob fled the country after the Songkhran Uprising in April leaving behind charges of instigating violence at that time.

PTT readers might link to the short story and note the anti-Jakrapob construction of this rather short story.
