Army’s chief thug

29 03 2018

The Nation reports that chief Army thug (or Army chief) General Chalermchai Sittisart has threatened pro-“election” activists.

Speaking of a series of rallies calling for an “election” in November (as The Dictator previously promised) the Army godfather singled out the Democracy Restoration Group. The Army is trying to show that the group is backed by “others” – meaning Thaksin Shinawatra and his followers.

We are not sure about some of the things this General godfather is reported to have said, but he apparently “called the activists’ demands … ‘groundless’, [saying]… “[t]hey have no condition. They just want to make movements…”. That’s not what has been coming from other reporting, where the activists have made particular demands.

The threat was then made and made very clear: “Eventually, ‘somebody’ will take care of them backstage anyway…”.

It is remarkable that even this murderous military can make such public threats.
