Ousted Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra filed a defamation complaint on Friday against two TV hosts for linking him to the recent raid for weapons in Pathum Thani.

 

Thaksin's lawyer, Chumsai Sriyapai, filed a complaint on his behalf with the Technology Crime Suppression division.

 

The "Yukol Asks Straightforwardly, Sonthiyarn Answers" programme on Spring News Channel was broadcast on Thursday.

 

Wuttipong "Ko Tee" Kottham-makhun, has been accused by the police of possessing seized weapons following a raid on a building in Pathum Thani.

I had thought that there was a new law which obliges the plaintiff to bring his complaint personally on the spot.
 

If there isn't, there should be. A person, and I mean any person, has fled the country to avoid prosecution by the legal system, that person should not be able to bring a suit against anyone in the country.

He didn't do anything wrong, you think?

Just a good guy?

Short memories are very much in vogue!

Agree, but perhaps it's convenient short memories.

- Massive abuse of power to aid his family to buy land which is the common wealth of all Thai, documents all signed on TV, numerous state officials standing around all looking very sheepish, 'this is illegal probably on their mind' but too scared to say anything.

 

- Involvement is the massive KT bank totally innappropriate loan to Myanmar government so that they had the funds to buy the paymasters products. Case already heard and several KT senior staff now in jail on 18 year sentences.

 

- Some 15 more cases, already shown many times that the evidence is overwhelming... 

 

But of course it's all just politically motivated.

A small correction Scorecard.

 

The loan to Myanmar was through the Eximbank. The KT loan, in which Oak was involved, was AFAIK property related.

Maybe we can get Trump to visit Thaksin in Dubai-  a one way ticket only. He can tell Thaksin how to make Thailand great again!!

 

 

Or they could buy twin blood diamond mines, just about suitable for their morals and values.

Well, someone believes Thaksin when he says he's never ever done anything wrong ever, in his entire life. Thaksin the Innocent.

 

Hmmm.

 

Convicted of a crime he has never denied or appealed but legged it before sentence. His lawyer was convicted of trying to bribe the judges.

Previously charged with asset concealment which he said was "an honest mistake". Got off on split decision. One judge who found him not guilty admitted later he thought he was guilty but deserved a chance as he's just been made PM.

Over 15 plus serious cases where he is charged but cannot be prosecuted as Thai law requires the accused to be charged in person in court. One is the infamous Krungthai Bank fraud where co-defendants have been found guilty and sentenced to 18 years.

 

Thaksin and other members of his family claim every charge for everything is "politically motivated". Several of them have convictions and some are currently involved in court cases.

 

But, some people swallow the propaganda, even when research is so easy these days, and believe it's all political. The only thing political is using political positions and influence to steal very large sums of money.

Well, everyone else is using the stupid defamation law, so why not!

It will just cause them some grief, time and money. Then go away!

 

Thaksin has and does use this law often and regularly.

 

He used in when in power to silence critics and now uses it to silence anything that might show the Shins in a bad light. 

 

I doubt he does this personally. More likely the lawyers have a standing brief to monitor and act.

 

The laws great for those with money - and that's the same everywhere.
