Condemn the Prime Minister's Reconciliation with "The Terrorists of The New Thai State"
Following the announcement of The Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva on Monday May 3, 2010 to reconcile with in order to solve the national crises, and the statement that if the protesters abandon the rally before May 5, 2010 then the PM would dissolve the parliament to set the general election date on November 14, 2010, People's Alliances For Democracy held a meeting and passed a resolution to take a stance as follows.
1. We agree to the major reform of Thailand and constructing of state welfare system which should have been done long ago with the public taking part, as PAD has called for since 2008. However, the proposals for reconciliation lack of details. The announcement seems like the government take itself out of the problem and become a middle man between two opposing or disputing groups whereas actually it is the government who proclaims the presence of terrorists among the protesters as well as a lot of military weapons, armed forces, and gangs of outlaws who pose threats to and harm innocent people, in addittion to subversive anti-royalist movements which want to abolish the Monarchy. Therefore, the government must strictly enforce the law instead of negotiating to reconcile and yielding to the terrorist movements of the "New Thai State".
2. Amidst such current problems, we consider the announcement to dissolve the house and going to a general election on November 14, 2010, an annihilation of the reformation of the country, justice system and the rule of law. It would make politicians concentrate only to compete in the election, and bureaucrats become ignorant to arrest political racketeers, armed political gangsters, terrorist movements, subversive anti-royalist movements, and abusive political media. From the declaration of the date of house dissolution onward, the election day and the post election, the country will become anarchy and lawless. The situation will become worse and much more devastated than ever. The "New Thai State" who will win the state authority, will dominate all bureaucrat offices particularly in the justice system before the court. The state media will be used for propaganda and more people will be killed by military weapons.
In addition, ignorance to search for military weapons [within the rally site] and to set checkpoints [outside the rally site] to search for weapons, allowing the red-shirts to have time to smuggle the weapons out of the rally site, is so dangerous to the people and democracy that it can eventually lead to the "New Thai State" 's terrorism.
3. We condemn the declaration of the general election date in advance that it ruins the reform of Thailand and does not deter the "New Thai State" 's subversive anti-royalists. In addition, it is a give away of the country to the malicious "New Thai State" 's terrorists. Therefore, the declaration of the general election date is only an irresponsible and selfish survival exit of the Prime Minister without consideration to the disasters of the country and people who will face the forthcoming political crises.
4. The premature specifying of the general election date to be on November 14, 2010 indicates that it is a result of a secret deal between Thaksin regime and the government. This government only wants to make use of this-year annual budget and push forward the next-year budget as well as to strategically promote bureaucratic, military, and police officers, in addition to attempt to amend the constitution for government coalition politicians' interests which include a bypass or diversion from disbanding the Democrat party. Whereas Thaksin regime and the "New Thai State" movement want to usurp the state authority as soon as possible.
We suspect that there is a conspiracy between the government and the fugitive criminal Thaksin to pardon or delay Thaksin's and his family's cases or block the cases off the court. There are going to be amnesties granted for political cases, particularly all politicians who were sentenced to suspension of voting rights [and representing rights following the verdicts of electoral frauds by 111 politicians from Thai Rak Thai party and 101 politicians from People's Power party of Thaksin]. Under these conditions, the fugitive criminal Thaksin agrees to refrain from politics which obviously conform with the Prime Minister's five proposals to reconcile.
We call for the government to sincerely deny the above matters and to confirm that they will not happen. Otherwise, it would mean that those politicians conspire for their interests only, and unethically betray the people. We insist that we will at our best, oppose the amendment of the constitute by politicians who commit only to their own interests and their amnesty.
5. Still, the "New Thai State" 's terrorist movements have not given up the rally as the Prime Minister announced before May 5, 2010. Moreover, as a result of the government's weakness, they both openly and secretly, insist on other additional demands for their and the fugitive criminal Thaksin's advantages.
We call for the Prime Minister's reconsideration and revocation of the plan to reconcile with the "New Thai State" 's terrorist movements. We call for the Prime Minister's review to revoke the premature calling a general election date. The PM should concentrate on reforming the country and state welfare system in parallel with strict law enforcement in order to return peace and construct security in safety of the people's lives and properties.
6. We reiterate that the ignorance of the red-shirts core leaders to protect the rallying people's lives and the [government's] past lack of law enforcement throughout have resulted in loss of lives and properties of soldiers and innocent people of both sides. If the government is still ignorant to enforce the law and not punishing or reshuffle idle bureaucrats and politicians in-charge, we would call for Mr.Abhisit Vejjajiva to express the responsibility by resigning from the Prime Minister post to let other sincere, capable and efficient Prime Ministers to enforce the law and reform Thailand instead of him, for the rule of law, the legal state principle and peace to be returned to Thai people.
