Update on the anti-monarchy “conspiracy”

24 02 2012

While it is hardly a surprise, The Nation has a brief report worth reading.

The investigation into an alleged plot to topple the monarchy has hit a dead end and may become a cold case, Pavesana Mulpramook, deputy chief of the Department of Special Investigation, said Friday.

Unless the graphic found can explain how the plot was hatched and carried out, investigators have no more leads left to pursue,” he said.

Pavesana was referring to a chart on the alleged conspiracy plot that was circulated by the Centre for the Resolution of the Emergency Situation in the midst of redshirt related political turmoil in April 2010.

The concocted “map,” produced by conspiricists amongst the Abhisit Vejjajiva regime, is reproduced below:

The Nation report continues:

He said four military officers attached to the CRES would give their statements on March 6 in order to shed light on the chart. If they fail to explain it, then the case would collapse because even Suthep Thaugsuban, who was CRES director, cannot recall how the chart came about to be linked to the conspiracy theory, he said.

Of course, there aren’t going to be many who will want to admit to concocting a document that was meant as a tool for repression. Then again, dopey yellow shirts continue to cling to it as in the case of the rather dull Tul Sitthisomwong speaking of people he shouts are anti-monarchist conspiricists, mentioning them by name at Prachatai, in blatant slanders.

Surrounded “by a dozen security officers who were interrogating him,” he was pressured to provide information with what looks to PPT to be a clear intent to map an anti-monarchy movement, perhaps adding to their earlier manufacture of just such a chart.
