Get financial audits on every member of parliament now and the past 10 years , families included , see how many can pass , lock the ones who fail up and seize all assets , then begin again with the police .  How many more prisons would be needed

But, but the "government" might not function with the remaining three "honest" Thais?

Muckraking, mud slinging and dirty tricks to the front asap.

It took them more than 10 years to finalize what looks like a straightforward case? Really?

Yes. Really.

Thainess fashion.

No dog in this hunt but the timeline is curious...


alleged "crime" took place in 2012


relevant law passed in 2018


indicted in 2023




"Show me the man and I’ll show you the crime"


Lavrentiy Beria, the most ruthless and longest-serving secret police chief in Joseph Stalin’s reign of terror in Russia and Eastern Europe, bragged that he could prove criminal conduct on anyone, even the innocent.




He fled into exile after the 2014 coup and hasn't been back. I think the initial charges against were to do with illegal logging but probably could get enough evidence to stick. If you look at his Wiki entry you can understand why they have been trying to charge him for 9 years. His father was a member of the Seri Thai and fought the Japanese occupiers in WW2. BTW I am not a fan of Thaksin and his family.


"The junta ordered all cabinet members to report to their headquarters, but unlike other politicians Charupong refused to turn himself in. He claims to have taken shelter at an unspecified place in Northeastern Thailand.[7][8] As a consequence, the National Council for Peace and Order blocked his bank accounts and assets.[9]


On 24 June 2014, Charupong announced the formation of the Organisation of Free Thais for Human Rights and Democracy (OFHD),[10] seeking to restore Thai popular sovereignty in the face of the 2014 Thai coup d'état. The date chosen is the 82nd anniversary of the Siamese Revolution of 1932. The organisation's name recalls the Thai underground resistance movement against Imperial Japan during World War II known as the Free Thai Movement (Thai: เสรีไทย, Seri Thai).[11]


On 24 June 2015, Charupong, acting as Secretary-General of OFHD, in a video uploaded on YouTube warned Thais of the risk Thailand turning into a failed state and detailed three goals of OFHD: (1) abolition of the Privy Council, (2) depoliticization/democratization/normalization of the Thai Army, and (3) depoliticization of the Thai judiciary."
