    Veera Prateepchaikul, Published on 09/09/2014

    » The management of TV Channel 3 seems to have forgotten that about a decade ago Supinya Klangnarong, then a vocal activist of the NGO the Campaign for Media Reform was charged with criminal defamation by Shin Corp for alleged defamatory remarks she made at a seminar entitled "Five Years of Thai Rak Thai – Shin Corp Gets Richer".

    Veera Prateepchaikul, Published on 01/07/2014

    » I couldn’t agree more with former senator Somchai Sawaengkarn who said on his Facebook page last week that the mainstream media has downplayed the Saraburi military court’s issuing of an arrest warrant for Lt Gen Manas Paorik, former deputy commander of the 3rd Army Region and a senior member of the Pheu Thai party.

    Veera Prateepchaikul, Published on 06/05/2014

It will be known this week, or maybe next week, whether caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra and, by extension, her cabinet will survive the scrutiny of the Constitutional Court over the transfer of Thawil Pliensri, secretary-general of Natioinal Security Council - ruled by the Administrative Court to be unfair and an abuse of authority.

    Crime and punishment of Somyot

    Voranai Vanijaka, Published on 01/05/2014

    » I don’t much care for Somyot Prueksakasemsuk's politics, although his strong conviction to them is admirable. I respect his idealism, but his allegiance leaves much to be desired.

    Out with the outdated Thai regime

    Voranai Vanijaka, Published on 25/12/2013

    » A friend of mine who is a businessman was asked why he was not out in the streets protesting. Is he not against corruption? But of course, he’s against corruption. In fact, he hates it so much that he has filed a lawsuit against a certain government ministry over unethical practices.

    Yingluck must apologise to the people

    Veera Prateepchaikul, Published on 12/11/2013

    » The mood of quite a few protesters has clearly gone beyond the blanket amnesty issue. The shouts of "Yingluck get out" that resonated at every protest site – Samsen railway station, Silom, Asoke intersection and Ratchadamnoen – along with the ear-deafening whistle blowing are indicative of the mood.
