New clips on the Constitutional Court

30 10 2010

The Bangkok Post and The Nation both report that new clips are posted on the web, putting more pressure on the Constitutional Court. The new videos are said to have surfaced to show judges allegedly “discussing leaks of sensitive information from their office.”

The Post says the “video [sic], uploaded to YouTube on Friday, allegedly shows former court employee Pasit Sakdanarong and two judges discussing ways to fight off the adverse impacts from alleged fraud involving the recruitment of court officials. In the video, the three discuss ways to head off plans by the Puea Thai Party to release a set of videos allegedly featuring fraudulent acts by judges involved in the recruitment scam.”

This particular clip is remarkable as it appears to show “those present at the meeting knew from Mr Jatuporn’s remarks that conversations had been secretly recorded at the court, although the tapes had not yet been released.” They also mention the “leaking of exam papers to applicants who were close to court judges, including the son of a judge.” The participants also know that these allegations are with the opposition. They plan how to shift blame on the clips.

Abhisit and the Democrat Party continue to cling to the line that “the key to the issue” is Pasit: “It’s all a plot to discredit the Constitution Court and lead to the dissolution of the Democrat Party…”.

Abhisit and the ICC « Political Prisoners in Thailand

[…] Why? How is this a blot on and justice system? The case made is that the Thai state has engaged in illegal actions. Perhaps the emphasis on justice could more easily be questioned in the context of the debasement of the Thai legal system, demonstrated time and again in recent years. Amsterdam and his fellows make a case and seek legal redress, something that seems impossible in Thailand. Ask those subject to imprisonment and secret trials for lese majeste. Ask those who watch clips of judges making corrupt deals. […]
