Attacking Puea Thai

7 10 2013

In several recent posts PPT has mentioned the anti-Thaksin Shinawatra coalition’s use of the “broad judiciary” in seeking to bring down the Puea Thai Party-led government.

The failure of the Democrat Party in multiple elections, the military’s lack of appetite for a coup, and the fizzling of street-based protest means the judiciary and “independent organizations” remain the next best opposition tool. That these organizations are largely populated by opposition and judicial appointees makes them potential allies against the elected government the royalists hate.

Usefully, The Nation has produced the following chart of the cases that have been brought by the Democrat Party and associated (mostly unelected) senators and PAD-related groups:
