Send lawyers, guns and money

17 11 2011

At The Nation, the two promised law suits against the government for alleged mishandling of the nation’s biggest-ever flood disaster have now morphed to be a “string of lawsuits.” In fact, they are the same two cases mentioned a few days ago, but then this newspaper is pretty darn good at concocting headlines and stories, especially when attacking anything to do with “the evil ones.”

The two groups plan “to sue state agencies, PM and Cabinet for the flooding situation and seek damages for victims.” Srisuwan Janya, chairman of the Stop Global Warming Thailand Association “will file a lawsuit with the Administrative Court against more than 10 government organisations that have worked to address flood problems” on 19 December. This will include: “Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra, the Cabinet, the Flood Relief Operations Centre (FROC), the Royal Irrigation Department, the Meteorological Department, the Metropolitan Waterworks Authority, the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (Egat), and the Hydro and Agro Informatics Institute…”. Notice how the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration is missing.

At least, following our admonition yesterday, the other suit planned by Narong Phetprasert includes the BMA. He says the “list of defendants” is likely to include “FROC, the Agriculture Ministry, the Natural Resources and Environment Ministry, Egat and the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration.

For a moment sounding like he has an ounce of political grey matter, Narong then collapses back into his more usual style when he adds that: “Although the previous government had mishandled last year’s flood control, the extent of flooding and damage did not warrant a court battle …, denying he was trying to target the Pheu Thai Party while sparing the Democrats.”

Working with the vivid yellow lot at the Law Society of Thailand ensures the anti-Puea Thai Party bias is clear. The coming together of the military, on a flood-induced wave of PR can’t hide its guns, with lawyers over money is likely to have opposition politicians in the Democrat Party shrieking with joy as they really enjoy having others do the heavy political lifting.
