Junta chief to terminate some 100 coup orders today

The chief of the National Council for Peace and Order will today issue his last order that will see the termination of some 100 coup orders, Deputy Prime Minister Wissanu Krea-ngam said on Tuesday.

 

Wissanu was commenting on a meeting with chief coalition whip Wirat Rattanset who consulted him Monday about the annulment of orders issued by the NCPO following the 2014 coup.

 

Wissanu said Wirat informed him that several motions were about to be put on the House agenda in relation to the request for the cancellation of coup orders.

 

The deputy prime minister said he explained to Wirat that the government would be ready to provide explanations to the House regarding the coup orders.

 

He informed Wirat that the NCPO chief would on Tuesday issue a final order to terminate some 100 coup orders that were no longer needed, such as those pertaining to the media and the martial court.

 

He said some orders did not have to be cancelled as they are time-tied and will automatically lapse on expiry.

 

After the last order is issued to terminate the coup orders, only a few will remain, Wissanu said.

 

He added that the government agencies concerned felt these remaining orders needed to be kept in place because they were issued to improve outdated laws. Wissanu said the House would simply have to consider whether to change their status from coup order to acts or whether to terminate them.

 

Wirat also asked Wissanu about the coup orders that saw many local administration officials suspended from duty.

 

Wisssanu said he explained to Wirat that some of the suspended officials have not been reinstated to their posts because they are still facing probes by either the National Anti-Corruption Commission or the Public Sector Anti-Corruption Commission.

 

Once cleared of corruption charges, the prime minister can issue orders to reintegrate them, Wisssanu added.

Does this mean we can really let rip with the comments without fear of persecution?Or are they just going to convert the orders to "acts" so that everything remains the same,including section 44?

Old ones not needed as they were probably updated and already passed by another dept, the NLA.

Various orders issued by 2014 coupmakers scrapped

By The Nation

A total of 66 subordinate laws and orders issued by the coupmakers after seizing power on May 22, 2014 stand annulled after coup leader and Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha yesterday issued a nullification order.

 

Many of the laws and orders remain effective.

 

Prayut's announcement of National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) Order 9/2019 came with the publication in the Royal Gazette website at 6.05pm on Monday.

 

Of the 66 orders, 28 of them are NCPO announcements, 29 are NCPO orders, four are orders of NCPO chief Prayut and five are NCPO orders requiring criminal investigations to be under the jurisdiction of military courts.

 

The nullification order was issued under a special authority of the draconian and controversial Article 44 and Article 265 of the Constitution.

What are you asking, can we start describing the dictator as a dictator now that he is apparently no longer a dictator? 

I am asking if we can call the man an armed and dagerous bandit who held up this country at gun point and illegally interferes in a democratic election and breaking constitutional laws with a total disregard for any laws other than his own and now many people now legitimise him with respectful titles like leader and primmincer,makes me physically want to have a spew!
