Future Forward sails into heavier storms

Future Forward sails into heavier storms

As many analysts, detractors, opponents and insiders say, the Constitution Court’s Wednesday verdict against Thanathorn Juangroongruangkit, stripping him of his MP status, is just the beginning. His and the Future Forward Party’s paths ahead continue to be plagued with great and potentially treacherous uncertainties.

 

Although Future Forward’s spokeswoman Pannika Wanich insisted that Thanathorn remained the party’s leader and prime ministerial candidate, the court’s verdict leaves some room for more and heavier legal action that can also badly affect the party. The Election Commission was waiting for the “guilty” verdict which would allow the panel to move to the next step.

 

So far, the “guilty” ruling has disqualified Thanathorn as an MP, as the court decided that he registered for the March election while still holding shares in a company with media-related operations. The court did not say it was an oversight or intention to break the law, but the EC is set to launch new charges that it was the latter.

Im sorry but bring back Tacksin. I lived in Thailand when he was PM and it was a beautiful place to live. I did not like him but the Thai people loved him and kept voting for him and that is called democracy. One can only imagine how prosperous Thailand would be now. If I remember the country was growing at 14~15%. I'm sorry but all I see now is a country being dragged down by a cancer of greed. Thailand was doomed since 2006. A purge is required and all generals require to be audited by outside auditors and if dirty shot (which probably means every single one of them)! Oh just remember what happened last time outside auditors were brought into Thailand they were murdered.

Perhaps you need a re-read of my post. I thought I was clear.

I am not talking about Thai secrets being exposed in "the wider world". I am talking about Thai secrets  being exposed domestically (causing backlash ie an impeachment trial).

 

Here's an example for you: It is alleged that many Thai politicians, police, high-office government employees etc have offshore accounts containing skimmed money. There would be a trail and many people would be aware of this. Yet it seems like nobody ever "blows the whistle or leaks the facts". Pity !

I take your point.  My point is, the allegations you quote must have some basis by whistle-blowers (bank clerks?) yet there is no concerted effort to follow your trail from within Thailand (unless the perpetrator has offended a Mr Big(ger).  When Companies doing business with Thailand say they will not play by these rules, some action might follow.
