Updated: Military cover-up continues

19 12 2015

The Corruption Park scandal just won’t go away. Most of the reason for that is that the junta is using very heavy-handed measures to stamp out all discussion of military corruption.

Prachatai reports that the police have been ordered by the military junta to issue “summon[s] letters for at least 11 Rajabhakti activists for violating the Thai junta’s political gathering ban.”  According to the report:

Chanoknan Ruamsab, one of the key leaders of the New Democracy Movement (NDM), a pro-democracy activist group, told Prachatai that on Friday, 18 December 2015, she received a summon letter from Suan Rot Fai Thonburi Police Station in Bangkok.

The letter orders her and 10 other activists whom were intercepted and detained en route an excursion to Rajabhakti Park [2]earlier this month to report to the police station at 9 am on 22 December 2015.

The summon order states that she and her fellow activists have been accused of violating the junta’s National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO)’s Order No. 3/2015, which prohibits political gatherings of five or more persons.

The cover-up continues.

Update: Saksit Saiyasombut at Asian Correspondent has a useful round-up of information on Corruption Park.
