Republicanism and those shirts IV

14 09 2018

The flag of the Dutch municipality of Enschede is getting quite a run in Thailand.

The Bangkok Post reports another arrest associated with the t-shirts alleged to be for the Organization for a Thai Federation.

Jinda Achariyasilp, 55, a vendor, was arrested in Chon Buri “for allegedly making and distributing T-shirts for the anti-monarchist … movement…”.

Deputy Dictator Gen Prawit Wongsuwan, pleased his watch story is being buried by alleged republicanism, states that “the Laos government was looking for more associates of the movement.”

Jinda was arrested on Wednesday “with 16 T-shirts bearing the emblem of the movement, white and red ribbons and fabrics for the production of the emblem. She also had a list of T-shirt deliveries, 10 unaddressed parcels and script drafts for phone-ins to a programme run by a man known as Lung Sanam Luang, believed to lead the pro-republic movement.”

Officials claimed she “had delivered T-shirts to members in Chon Buri and nearby provinces…”, suggesting the movement, if there is one, is bigger than the junta thugs have suggested.

Jinda was said to have “confessed” and was taken off to the 11th Military Circle in Bangkok for further interrogation, without legal assistance, which is the norm in the junta’s world.
