Thai prime minister accused of war crimes

26 10 2010

That’s a catchy headline and it is in the U.K.’s Telegraph. It is followed by this: “Abhisit Vejjajiva, the Old Etonian prime minister of Thailand, was accused of crimes against humanity during military operations to break up the Bangkok riots earlier this year in a complaint lodged on Tuesday at the International Criminal Court (ICC).”

The complaint lodged appears to be the one at Thaksin Shinawatra’s lawyer’s blog, Robert Amsterdam Thailand. Amsterdam says that a “preliminary filing [is] submitted to the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) to notify with regard to the situation in the Kingdom of Thailand.” He has some parts of the filing at his site and promises more. The posted document is 62 pages and downloads as a PDF.
