Wolf with a Conscience


It turns out that not all of the junta-approved judges were willing to believe the ‘evidence’ used in the [it is of course illegal to criticise the verdict of a court in Thailand, which will tell you all you need to know about the system] ‘controversial’ decision to find former PM Thaksin Shinawatra ‘guilty’ of ‘abuse of power’ under ‘controversial’ new laws introduced by the PAD and approved by well-known friends of the poor Generals Jackboots, Dracula and Robber Baron.

Congratulations to ML Rithithep Devakula for standing up for the rule of law [it is of course illegal to criticise a court decision in Thailand and I would never dream of doing so].

The story, in the Nation, is somewhat amusingly included in the ‘politics’ section.
