Puppet Yingluck's Reign
Commence Of Anti-Laundering of Thaksin's Crimes
( Last edit 2012-05-30 )
Yingluck's Pua Thai party has only one major objective, that is, to launder Thaksin.
On May 29, 2012 at Pra Arthit House, core leaders of PAD gave a press release about the rally to protest the draft Reconciliation Act which had been scheduled at the King Rama V plaza at 13:00 on May 30, 2012. Major general Chamlong Srimuang, a core leader of PAD said, "No matter which drafts of the Reconciliation Act submitted to the parliament, if passed, core leaders would also benefit. There would be no more visit to the courts. This morning, Mr.Sondhi Limthongkul had to go to the court. However, we cannot put our or our group's interests as the criteria. We have to put the country first. We do not want the personal interests here. We are also confident that we have all along sacrificed for the country. If we are guilty, we have to accept the punishment. No problem. This is better than trickily enact the law to launder themselves and utterly and unprecedentedly destroy the justice system. Can Thai people stay silent and let them pass this way? We have to come out because if they are passed, the country would certainly fail. Moreover, the Lese Majeste cases would be dropped. Would we allow that? If passed, the Reconciliation Act would lift all cases and criminal code article 112's amendment would not matter anymore. Soon, any rich would not mind how severe the offenses are, so long as they own the majority in the parliament. The parliament would enact the amnesty law for themselves. If so, how would the country survive?"
Major general Chamlong continued, "In this rally, we will carefully discuss. We will be there and discuss about all steps similarly to the last three rallies which we carefully carried out and successfully achieved. Lengthy or not will depend on the situation which we would consider appropriate.
Major general Chamlong said, "As a soldier, I see General Sondhi Boonyaklin who submitted the draft Reconciliation Act to the parliament, as the worst former coup leader. However, for soldiers, good or bad belongs to individual. General Sondhi should realize this. He has changed for some unknown causes but has defamed all soldiers."
Major general Chamlong continued, "Tomorrow, there will be many groups rallying which is good and would not mind, so long as the goal is the same, that is against the 3-4 drafts of the Reconciliation Act which destroy the country. I used to be an MP and senator but I have never seen any country-devastating like this one. We shall oppose it at our best. I would like to say through the media that for whatever steps ahead we shall be careful and caring for the protesters and the peace-keeping officers. But the rally cannot be barred because we follow article 71 of the Constitution which states that each person has the duty to protect national interests. If we do not come out, not carrying out the duty, there would be damages which we cannot allow. I wish the authority in 3 bodies (the attorney general, Electoral Committee and the National Counter Corruption Committee) would rapidly execute the matters which PAD have submitted on April 26, 2012. Now that it is without any progress, the authorities please hastily carry out the tasks."
Mr.Pipop Thongchai, a core leader of PAD, said, "For whichever drafts of Reconciliation Act, the results are amnesty for Pol.Lt.Col.Thaksin Shinawatra and refunding of 46 billion baht which would destroy the justice system. Since the Constitutional Court's verdicts bind all organizations, proposal of the law to abolish the justice system is a big issue. In the future if the court has convicted any politicians for any cases, politicians who hold the majority in the parliament would enact the law to nullify such verdicts. Therefore, these Reconciliation Act drafts are not only helping Pol.Lt.Col.Thaksin but also destructive to the country. We have to come out to protest."
Mr.Panthep Puapongpan, the speaker of PAD, said, "Tomorrow, as we know, there will be a lot of people joining the rally, not only PAD members because these drafts do not lead to reconciliation, but divisiveness instead. The drafts are against several articles of the Constitution, namely article 3 and 309. They do not follow the rule of law and create conflicts of interests because the supportive politicians would benefit from the Act. They are against article 216 which stipulates that Constitutional Court's verdicts bind all authorities whereas the parliament is abolishing such verdicts. The drafts also violate several articles of criminal code such as undue execution of duty, for they only benefit certain groups of people at certain time, leaving a lot of other convicts out which is unfair. The drafts violate article 191 and 192 of the criminal code because they help suspects under interrogation or convicted fugitives to flee. Therefore, tomorrow after the submission of the letter to the parliament, we shall proceed according to the Constitution and the criminal code.
Yingluck's party government is rushing for amnesty for Thaksin through legislation and ignoring of justice
