Huge (non-)surprise

28 08 2014

PPT was certainly not alone in being anything but surprised when the politicized judiciary threw out the murder charges against  elite, royalist anti-democrats Abhisit Vejjajiva and Suthep Thaugsuban.

Both order three cold-blooded attacks on red shirt protesters, in 2009 and in April and May 2010. About a hundred deaths and thousands of injuries resulted.

The Criminal Court ruled that:

any alleged wrongdoing or abuse of power by Mr. Abhisit and Mr. Suthep must be dealt with by the Supreme Court’s Division for Holders of Political Office, as the two men were Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister at the time of the military operation.

Just to ensure that the double standards were adequately revealed, the “ruling also transferred authority to pursue the charges from the DSI to the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC),” meaning that nothing is ever likely to happen on the charges. It seems that the military’s well-known impunity when it slaughters its citizens extends to elite, royalist anti-democrats.

Flying in the face of considerable evidence, Abhisit and Suthep have always denied the murder charges, claiming that unidentified “men in black” were responsible for all deaths. This lie has been repeated by The Dictator, General Prayuth Chan-ocha, who commanded the murderous attacks.

The evidence is that the military was “responsible for the majority of deaths caused by the crackdown, including a soldier who was reportedly killed in a ‘friendly fire’ in April 2010.” In addition, video evidence has shown soldiers “shooting indiscriminately into the crowds of protesters.”

Suthep, Abhisit and Prayuth are responsible for these murders.
