Justice, political satisfactions and lessons that must be learned

October 1, 2022: Thaksin Shinawatra’s political survival following a Constitutional Court ruling in 2001 taught one side of the ideological divide the virtue of patience. Prayut Chan-o-cha’s escape this week should do the same to the other.

 

The court is always targeted one way or the other. Had it gone the other way yesterday, Prayut’s supporters would have slammed the judges like Thanathorn Juangroongruangkit and Pita Limjaroenrat are doing now. If Thaksin had not been declared “not guilty” more than two decades ago, his fans would have bashed the court to pieces.

 

Thaksin was off the hook and the rest was history. Turmoil often went back to his questionable integrity and politics ever since has been plagued with allegations that Thailand’s judges are part of a conspiracy and, on the other hand, disrespect for the highest court’s verdicts are what causes trouble.

To be fair to Thaksin, he did make a declaration of his wealth, even if he did lie.

 

OTOH, Prayuth has refused point blank to do so.

 

Prayuth's advantage is that he has friends in higher places than Thaksin ever did.

 

But that cannot and will not last forever.
