PAD and anti-monarchism

4 04 2011

The People’s Alliance for Democracy has “called on the army to take more serious action against anti-monarchy activities.” It seems the army commander has confirmed that there is an ongoing crackdown on anti-monarchy movements.

Somewhat oddly, PAD’s Prapan Khoonmee said the television interview with Princess Chulabhorn “was proof that lese majeste activities on the internet remain rampant. He said it was the first time a member of the Royal Family expressed such opinions in public.” Certainly, the general tenor of her interview included concerns about rumors and “limited understanding.”

Prapan urged “the army should take more action than word on protecting the Monarchy since attempts to undermine the country’s most revered institution have not yet ceased.”
