Thanathorn seeks more public scrutiny of Military

Recommended Posts

The military has always governed in Thailand, first in the shadows always ready to intervene, now in the sunlight.
The situation is very dangerous in case the new chiefs of the armed forces decide to make a coup against the junta that governs at the moment!
So friend, calm down you wanted them, keep them!

Future Forward Party (FFP) leader Thanathorn Juangroongruangkit said that one of the structural problems in the Military is it is not open to scrutiny by members of the House of Representatives and people of the country, especially with its reputation for human rights violations such as physical assault.

A protected species with a huge budget... transparency is not on the agenda!

I would think pigs will fly first before this happens. Now with that said by Thanathorn, they will now probably go for his jugular.

Problem is that we know who would be on the 'independent body' and their rank too

It doesn't have to be an existing so-called "independent body."

I suggest a tri-partisan (3 largest parties in NLA) to either conduct the investigation directly as a "star chamber" with subpoena power or form a selection committee to nominate citizens at-large not holding public office currently or for the last six years for appointment by the NLA as part of a Special Investigative Committee for Examining Military (SICEM). To prevent political dominance in the appointment to this investigative body by simple majority, a two-thirds vote by the NLA would be required.
