BANGKOK: -- Security authorities still attempt to locate hardcore red shirt leader Wutthipong Kotchathamkhun, or “Ko Tee”, over arrest warrants in 21 cases including for lese majeste, despite failing to get cooperation from his safe haven country, Laos.

 

Thawip Netniyom, National Security Council secretary general, said on Tuesday that Ko Tee is still in Laos.

 

He said he sought cooperation from the country.

 

“So far, there is no progress [from Laos to hand over Ko Tee],” he said. “We cannot do much because it’s all about cooperation. 

 

“The best thing neighbouring countries should do is to give collaboration.

 

“We have sought cooperation at every level. Prime Minister Prayut, a deputy premier and myself have done so every time we visited the country.”

 

Asked if Thailand had failed to get good cooperation, Thawip said: “Sincerity to each other is important.”

 

Since early this year, Thawip has sent several requests to Laos authorities for Ko Tee to be arrested.

 

Ko Tee is said to be politically active there.

Heh. Doesn't Laos understand how important the little general is?

 

Maybe he'll send the boys round. No wait. It didn't turn out very well for Thailand last time - when they sent Chavalit in to sort out the Laos farmers. Got a bit of a kicking iirc.

 

Perhaps they don't understand how much of a threat Koh Tee is. Perhaps they think someone's telling porkies...

I can't imagine anyone politically active in Laos. Politics just does not exist - well, not what most people see. Good for Lao. Thailand's Lese Majesty laws are ridiculous. 15 years for saying or writing ONE true fact!!!!

I ofter wonder which century Thailand is in. Maybe call in the Spanish Inquisition - although they may be too mild for Thailand.

So you approve of military juntas paying to have people they don't like killed in other countries?

Why should a military junta not copy the US-Government? It seems perfectly normal.Just order another drone in China.

Because the US government is elected, subject to checks and balances, have a constitution that is not ripped to shreds every five minutes and can be voted out of office?

 

But back to the matter at hand: Do you advocate the extrajudicial killing of Ko Tee?
