    NCCC has deliberated the facts and informed the charges to the respondents. All were allowed to explain and defend themselves.

    1.Mr.Somchai Wongsawat, the Prime Minister then, was the head of the government which had to administer the country for the safety of the people and had to respect the people's rights of expression as stipulate by the Constitution. Although it appeared that Mr.Somchai Wongsawat had contacted Mr.Chai Chidchob, the House Speaker, to change the meeting place or postpone the assembly but Mr.Chai Chidchob still insisted for the original time and place. However, police officers used violent measures against the people and resulted in injuries and deaths.

    Despite that there were serious injuries from police officers' operations to gain an entry into the parliament at the dawn of October 7, 2008, General Chavalit Yongjaiyudth expressed a responsibility by announcing a resignation from the Deputy Prime Minister post, Mr.Somchai Wongsawat still did not order the police officers under his command, to stop the operations. Instead, he let the actions gradually progress to more violences from dawn to dark and to resultant injuries and deaths. The actions or inactions of Mr.Somchai Wongsawat, therefore, are criminal offenses according to article 157 of the criminal code, as he was an officer who, deliberately inflicted damage to anyone, by unduly performed or avoided to perform the duty.

    2. As for General Chavalit Yongjaiyudth, the Deputy Prime Minister then, the excessively violent and fatal operations of the police officers to open up the routes for members of parliaments to enter the parliamentary assembly to attend the government's inauguration declaration of policy, without due consideration to the lives and safety of the democratic ralliers, were operations following orders of Mr.Somchai Wongsawat and General Chavalit Yongjaiyudth. General Chavalit Yongjaiyudth had assigned Police General Boonrit Ratanaporn and Police Major General Surapong Siripakdee to follow up the situation all along. Therefore, the decision to announce the resignation, after the damages had been done, could not dismiss him from liabilities.

    General Chavalit Yongjaiyudth, the Deputy Prime Minister then, had the duty to administer the country next to the Prime Minister and was authorized by the Prime Minister and the cabinet to command the National Police Bureau to carry out operations to open up entrances for the MPs into the parliamentary assembly. Therefore, such actions or inactions of his fall in to article 157 of the criminal code, as he was an officer who, deliberately inflicted damage to anyone, by unduly performed or avoided to perform the duty.

    3. After the crackdown of the rallies at dawn and despite severe injuries as bad as several severed limbs and extensive media broadcast, Police General Patcharawas Wongsuwan, the Commander of the National Police Bureau then, who was directly responsible to the policies from politicians to carry out operations to open up entrances for the MPs into the parliamentary assembly, remained ignorant and failed to order a cancellation of the operations, or yielded to the politicians' policies which he claimed he might not resist. His acts were irresponsible to his duty which primarily demanded due care of safety of the people.

    Although Police General Patcharawas Wongsuwan tried to request a change of the assembly site or a postpone of the assembly which exhibit an attempt to avoid the confrontation of the people and the police officers; it could not cancel the effects from the operations of the police officers under his command.

    What Police General Patcharawas Wongsuwan did following the orders of the Prime Minister and the Deputy Prime Minister, without refraining from actions which were harmful to the people, but caused such damages, was not a norm of a police officer who has the duty to protect people. Therefore, according to article 79(5) and (6) of the 2004 National Police Act, such actions or inactions of Police General Patcharawas Wongsuwan, the Commander of the National Police Bureau, are considered highly corrupt because of severe violations of the disciplines and avoidance of actions which resulted in damages to the bureaucratic service. Also, his acts are criminal offenses according to article 157 of the criminal code, as he was an officer who unduly performed or avoided to perform the duty to deliberately inflict damage to anyone.

    4. Since the matter of fact is that police officers under the command of Police Lieutenant General Suchart Muankaew, the Commander of the Metropolitan Police and Situation Commander in the peace keeping plan (Korakot/48), used too excessive force which resulted in serious injuries and deaths, therefore, Police Lieutenant General Suchart Muankaew has to be responsible to all incidences where police officers dispersed the ralliers.

    Although Police Lieutenant General Suchart Muankaew had knew of the incidences in the morning of October 7, 2008 when police officers under the assignment from him, had fired and thrown teargas canisters into the crowd which surrounded the parliament, resulting in a lot of serious injuries, at 16:00 Police Lieutenant General Suchart Muankaew remained ordering the force with teargas to go on dispersing the crowd which resulted in some more people injured from the teargas. About 19:00, police officers in front and inside of the headquarter of the metropolitan office still fired teargas canisters at PAD ralliers, resulting in deaths and several other serious injuries, lost of legs and hands.

    Being the situation commander, Police Lieutenant General Suchart Muankaew knew that using teargas to disperse the crowd had resulted in injuries to the people, but he did not reconsider or cease the procedures.

    Instead, he ordered the same procedures in the afternoon and a repeat at dark. Such acts of Police Lieutenant General Suchart Muankaew, the Commander of the Metropolitan Police then, are considered highly corrupt because of severe violations of the disciplines because of causing serious injuries to people during bureaucratic operations and carrying out or avoidance of actions which resulted in damages to the bureaucratic service. Also, his acts are criminal offenses according to article 157 of the criminal code and article 79(3) (5) (6)the 2003 National Police Act, as he was an officer who unduly performed or avoided to perform the duty to deliberately inflict damage to anyone.

    As for Police Major General Likit Klin-ual, deputy commander of the metropoliltan police, Major General Ekarat Mee-preecha, deputy commander of the metropoliltan police, Police Major General Wiboon Bangthamai, deputy commander of the metropoliltan police, Police Major General Jaktip Chaijinda, deputy commander of the metropoliltan police, and other police officers in operation for the dispersal of this rally were carrying out duties under control and command of the commander of the metropoliltan police, as the situation commander, and under the Commander of the Police Bureau. The acts and the evidences are not sufficient to indicate violation to the bureaucratic duties. Therefore, the accusations are dismissed. As for Police General Wirot Paholwej, the Deputy Commander of the Police Bureau, there is no evidence to indicate a direct authority to the situation. The accusation is invalid and to be dismissed.

    According to 1999 articles 92 and 70 of the Counter Corruption Act, in association with the Constitution, the cases of Police General Patcharawas Wongsuwan and Police Lieutenant General Suchart Muankaew are to be filed to their superiors to deliberate for disciplinary punishments, while the cases of Mr.Somchai Wongsawat, General Chavalit Yongjaiyuth, Police General Patcharawas Wongsuwan and Police Lieutenant General Suchart Muankaew are to be filed to the Supreme Court, Criminal Section for the political post holders.

    Although General Chavalit was never a member of Thaksin's party "PPP" in Somchai's government even when he took the Deputy Prime Minister post, as soon as Chavalit is indicted by NCCC, he seeks to shelter under Thaksin's party "Pua Thai", claiming to help reconciliation and uniting the nation but actually he may be uniting with Thaksin's cronies to help consolidating political power for amending the laws for his own and for Thaksin amnesty.

    A decade ago, he sold a big lot of MPs in his Kwam Wang Mai (New Hope) party to consolidate Thaksin's TRT party and retired, after scandals of leaking baht devaluation information to Thaksin. CLICK.
