Charter court accepts media share cases of 32 pro-government MPs

The Constitutional Court today (Wednesday) agreed to accept for consideration the cases of 32 pro-government MPs accused by the opposition Future Forward party of owning or holding shares in media companies in violation of the election law.

 

At the same time, the court decided to drop the cases of nine other pro-government MPs facing similar allegations on the grounds that the evidence, presented by the Future Forward party in the form of memoranda of association of companies registered at the Business Development Department, did not clearly indicate the firms intended to engage in the media business.

 

The nine MPs who were let off the hook were Mr. Sastra Sriparn, Mr. Surasak Chingnawan, Ms. Parim Pooncharoen, Ms. Pareena Kraikupt, Mr. Chaivuth Thanakamansorn, Mr. Chakkrabhand Pornnimit, Mr. Korn Chatikavanich, Mr. Pramual Pongwarade and Mr. Akkaradet Wongpitakrote.

 

Since these cases were dropped, the court did not consider the Future Forward party’s demand that they should be suspended from performing their duty as MPs.

Looks like quite the opposite to me. 9 off the hook 32 to go. Do you think the result will be different. Consitutionl Court. Hfff! Just another arm of the junta. And yes, I still call them the junta as they were not democratically elected.

Time can be so useful at times. I believe it took nearly 400 days before the verdict on ownership of media shares  by the wife of Foreign Minister Mr Don was reached.

Well,  I got that wrong. Thought they would find some pathetic excuse to not accept these cases.

Guess the media frenzy got to them.

 

Still, when it all shakes out it won't come to anything. This will drag on and fizzle out.

A fine example of double standards. No suspension for Phalang Pracharat MPs, while FFP candidate Phubet Henlod was disqualified for the very same accusations. And Thanathorn is suspended for nearly identical accusations.

 

I wonder what the differences are? Oh.. "khon dee" vs "evil closet  commies" who battle pizza laws. I see.
