    » Nope, this is not about missing persons from various protests over the years, but rather Court cases. Here is a tiny list: 1. The 2-3 digit lottery case with about 50 people involved 2.

The election case (local administration) 7. The LM case against Sondhi Sorry for my bias, but most of the "missing" cases are in fact connected to the PAD/Dem. Anybody able to help complete the list?[/quote:1rvtzamh] Howabout 8. Charges pending with the EC on Suthep's violation of giving scholarships in the South during the elections? That should be a red card with disolution of the Party. EC originally didn't even touch the case till PT pushed the case.

    • SARDINES commented : [quote="Chris-TH":sqx97mmm]Well, judging from the news today some of the missing cases are emerging: [color=#FF0000:sqx97mmm][b:sqx97mmm]We have an EC case against Suthep,[/b:sqx97mmm][/color:sqx97mmm] the Thaksin assets case, and the PAD case(s). What wonders me a bit about the PAD case(s) is that the PAD lawyer has requested the police to interview more people. I thought that witnesses were presented in court and no to the institution that are about to press charges.[/quote:sqx97mmm] The most that can happen to Suthep is that he will have to step down and perhaps be disqualified from politics for a number of years if found guilty. (which if things have gone the direction that they have, he might be let off... but let's see). However, since this is a local election for a local post, even if found guilty there will no need to be a party disolution. SARDINES

    Writer jailed for 'insulting' Thai royals

    » Writer jailed for 'insulting' Thai royals Australian writer Harry Nicolaides is jailed for three years after being found guilty of insulting the Thai monarchy in his novel. Today news from the BBC, after heard the news I thought that maybe it time that maybe we should all discussing this kind of...

    • SARDINES commented : Stategically, I believe that powers made a big boo-boo in enforcing it it so harshly this time and even jailing the writer. This will bring a unwanted hail storm concerning the issue of this law and major bad publicity that the powers be, don't want OR should not want. I think sombody(ies) have shot themselves in the foot. SARDINES

    • SARDINES commented : I hope journalists everywhere and NGO's can keep the limelight and pressure on this. SARDINES

    • SARDINES commented : [quote="triptrip":zsxqfgio][quote:zsxqfgio] I have much respect for the R_yal family and I also have much respect for my freedom of speech and expression. Therefore my question is does we need to apply the same rules to the R_yal family as we have apply for \\ /////? Does they deserve the same right rules of law to \\ ///// good example? [/quote:zsxqfgio] Actually, if the same rules for us is applicable to the Rayol family then the Rayol family can sue anyone who defames them in the court of law, just like the man on the street dont you think? The rayol family does attract a lot of attention and naturally some people may want to provoke them like say something really nasty but without proper evidence supporting their claims. Much like a celebrity who is in the limelight all the time and people writing ludicrous claims about their personal life, think of the recent "pregnancy" of Lydia. If I say your family or mum is a \\\ /////, would you not be insulted and sue me for defamation unless I have 100% evidence that your mom indeed sold her body? Even if that's true, there's no need for me to tell the whole world about it with or without your consent. Sometimes, I think it's really difficult to be in the Rayol family since it's really a case of danmed if you do and danmed if you don't. p.s. I dont support the lese majeste law as I think it's outdated.[/quote:zsxqfgio] Hi triptrip, The difference with the lese majeste law and the above taking to court on slander is that under the lese majeste law, whether it is true or not, you face imprisonment. If what's said or printed is true even with evidence to back up, if an insult is made, you get a ticket to jail (criminal code article 12) if the law is good or not in it's current state, you decide. I can't comment much on this
