Jatuporn, lese majeste and Nitirat

2 02 2012

With respect to comments made in our last post, we were interested to see that Jatuporn Promphan has been quoted at The Nation in interesting ways. In the context of recent Puea Thai Party equivocation, his comments deserve attention.

Jatuporn

Jatuporn has reaffirmed that the royalist opponents have set up a “war room to cite the lese majeste issue as a pretext to topple the government by April.” He made the all too obvious point that the “lese majeste issue would be distorted in order to pin the blame on the government.”

Jatuporn made the point that the United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship and Nitirat “were free to persue their separate ideas.”

In a context where Puea Thai people have been displaying spinelessness, Jatuporn stated: “I am not panic-strickened to abandon (Nitirat) but I, Pheu Thai and Nitirat have respective stands…”. He claims that Nitirat had fallen prey to a “frame-up.”

Finally, he made the equally obvious point that:

Even though the campaign to amend Article 112 of the Criminal Code could solicit 10,000 signatures of support, there would be no MPs dare to vote for the amendment, he said.
