Nawat Tohcharoensuk

 

The Constitutional Court today ordered Nawat Tohcharoensuk, the Pheu Thai MP for Khon Kaen, to renounce his status as a member of parliament, after being sentenced to death for masterminding a murder by Khon Kaen criminal court.

 

The Election Commission of Thailand had requested a ruling by the Constitutional Court on whether Nawat should be disqualified as an MP , according to the Constitution of Thailand’s article 101 (6) and 96 (6), reasoning that Nawat had been given the death penalty and was being detained while filing an appeal to the supreme court.

 

The Constitutional Court accepted the request in accordance with article 82 of the Constitution and article 75 (5) of the constitutional act, ordering Nawat to immediately give up his status as a member of Parliament, before that a public pronouncement will be made.

 

At the Khon Kaen criminal court, Nawat was found guilty of hiring the other defendants to shoot dead Suchart Khotethum, the assistant chief of Khon Kaen provincial administration organisation, for the victim's affair with his wife.

What hope can Thailand actually have when an MP supposedly in the good guys' camp is bona fide human garbage?

The fact his party haven't cut him loose fully already speaks volumes about just how murky the Thai political sphere is. As much as i loathe the pro military camp, you can't help but feel that this idiot is as bad as or worse than any in their ranks.

Trying to get bail after a death sentence has been given in a pretty open and shut case is the pinnacle of absurdity. Depressing as per

It is new territory, MP's expected immunity. I think this is the first time an MP has been convicted of a serious crime, so they are going through the motions to work out the process because admitting fault and accepting responsibility is a struggle for some. It also allows other to get their defences in place.

That is the thing on both sides are they doing exactly the same. The PTP is as bad as the junta because they kept standing by this guy just like the junta stood by their garbage. Both are utter hypocrites for only attacking the other side their bad MP. Had the PTP any moral high ground they would have kicked this guy out themselves.

 

The only party that I like and should be in government is future forward.

Last time the PTP had a guy in their ranks that shot his wife and he could not be convicted until the immunity ran out. They stood by their guy (sickening like the current mob stood by their drug dealing guy). I feel that immunity is nice.. but not for murder, drug dealing and such.
