Judicial complicity

4 04 2014

How could it be otherwise? According to The Nation, the “Criminal Court has revoked the arrest warrants for People’s Democratic Reform Committee chief Suthep Thaugsuban and 17 PDRC core leaders on charges of violating the emergency decree…”.

The court had approved the warrants on 5 February “for the 18 PDRC leaders on charges of violating Article 11 and 12 of the emergency decree as requested by the Department of Special Investigation.” no-justice

However, as the “government lifted the state of emergency on March 18, the PDRC [the anti-democrats] petitioned the Criminal Court to revoke their warrants.”

The other 17 anti-democrats let off the hook are “Sathit Wongnongtoey, Chumpol Julasai, Buddhipongse Punnakanta, Isara Somchai, Witthaya Kaewparadai, Thaworn Senneam, Nataphol Teepsuwan, Akanat Promphan, Anchalee Paireerak, Nititorn Lamlua, Uthai Yodmanee, Samdin Lertbutr, Preecha Iamsuphan, Ratchayut Siriyothinphakdee, Kittichai Saisa-ard, Samran Rodphet, and Phansuwan Nakaew.”

Has PPT missed something in the report? They allegedly broke a law – the emergency decree – but because it is revoked their slates are wiped clean? Tell that to the red shirts jailed for similar offences.

The double standards are just too clear and the judiciary is demolishing itself.
