    Avoiding a religious row

    News, Editorial, Published on 20/01/2016

    » It is unclear why authorities in the South have pushed a project for a new Buddhist park in Pattani province. Indeed, as of yesterday at least, provincial officials had provided no specifics.

    Hemp plan won't work

    News, Editorial, Published on 02/01/2017

Gen Paiboon, who now sits on the Privy Council, at least had a vision of how to turn the "war on drugs" into rational justice.
