CRES to go

10 12 2010

The Bangkok Post reports that CRES has “agreed to recommend to the cabinet that it lift the emergency decree in Bangkok and surrounding provinces.” This means that “CRES would be dissolved once the decree was lifted and a new centre would be established to implement the peace-keeping plan prepared by the Internal Security Operations Command. The Internal Security Act would be imposed to enable the deployment of soldiers should there be a further outbreak of unrest…”. CRES has existed since 12 March 2010.

Is it a coincidence that the “CRES decision to recommend the lifting of the emergency decree came shortly after the Constitution Court dismissed another lawsuit against the ruling Democrat Party. The move yesterday negated the threat of a possible dissolution of the party for allegedly failing to declare a 258 million baht contribution from a private donor”?
