Defiant Thanathorn returns, to submit defence with EC next week

Firebrand leader of Future Forward Party Thanathorn Juangroongruangkit expressed confidence tonight that he would not be penalized by the Election Commission in connection with the allegation that he breached the Constitution and the election by holding shares in a media firm while registering for the March-24 election.

 

Speaking to reporters at Suvarnabhumi airport, Thanathorn said he will submit his defence with the commission on April 29 and insisted on his innocence.

 

Thanathorn was greeted by an army of supporters upon his return from a week-long trip to Europe during which the Election Commission announced it had pressed charge against the 41-year-old politician for his alleged holding of shares in V Luck Media Co Ltd.

You need to be a brave man indeed to stick your head above the parapet in Thailand.

True, but he's in with the "not so in crowd" which makes things worse.

Different political agenda, but clearly capable of becoming as much a nuisance to the Thai elite as Tommy Robinson is proving to the UK establishment.

 

Tenacious Tommy - a villain to some and a working class hero to millions - has bounced back from a jail sentence and another imminent court appearance by announcing he'll fight for a seat in the upcoming EU parliamentary elections.

 

For Thanathorn's sake, one can only hope he's as tough and persistent as the much-maligned lad from Luton.

What is there to wonder, ain't nobody squeaky clean in that club.

 

Maybe, He believes he can do something positive for the country, it's people and make a little on the side as well, without the wholesale theft of public money.

Thanathorn an intelligent, successful international businessman along with being busy raising a family must really love Thailand and want the best for it. If I had his millions and was always being tormented by the junta government, I’d say it wasn’t worth the headache. 😞😞😞
