Buddha Issara arrested I

24 05 2018

Like others, we are somewhat mystified by the arrest of fascist monk Buddha Issara. The English report we have seen states:

At Wat Onoi in Kamphaeng Saen district, police arrested activist abbot Phra Buddha Isara, who gained front-page notoriety for his support of the Bangkok Shutdown movement in 2013-14. He was held on a charge of supporting robbery during the demonstrations led by the People’s Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC).

The police case against Phra Buddha Isara relates to a group of anti-Yingluck Shinawatra government demonstrators he led which in 2013 robbed Special Branch police of guns during their protest.

We do recall that the events mentioned and the monk’s many interventions, as well as the support he had for The Dictator. We recall his support for the popcorn gunman and other shooters. We remember that he held and tortured some police. Maybe the police are paying back.

Buddha Issara and friend
