EC mulls criminal charges against dissolved Future Forward Party

The Election Commission is studying the Constitutional Court’s ruling dissolving the Future Forward Party to determine whether a criminal case can be brought against it.

 

According to the organic law on the political parties, the violations of Section 62 which gives political parties only seven ways to raise funds and Section 66 limiting the amount of money that can be collected in donations at Bt10 million , allow the commission to lay charges under the penal code.

 

The penalties might be imprisonment for up to five years, a fine of up to Bt100,000 or both, or the party could be barred from the next election and fined up to Bt1 million and its executives could be banned from politics for five years.

 

EC secretary-general Jarungvith Phumma filed a letter to the former leader of Future Forward asking him to hand over the accounts and financial status of the party to the registrar of political parties within 30 days. It will then pass on the information to the

 

Office of the Auditor General of Thailand within 180 days since the party has been dissolved.

 

Moreover, former executives of the dissolved party must continue their functions until the accounts are clarified.

 

In regard to the party's MPs whose rights for an election were not revoked, the EC ordered them to register with other political parties within 60 days.

Well isn't that the basic idea.

Maybe the current ruling group of MPs will split into two 'opposing groups' and people will be given a choice between them.

The ideology has been taken on. The upcoming generations of voters are only going to vote 1 way.

All this absurdity will only make any military entity even more unpopular in future.

True, any dignity that the military has enjoyed has been ruined by cha cha.   He is a bully in Thailand and acts cowardly towards the US and China.

These people really do not understand the concept of making themselves a laughing stock. Having bought their way into their positions with the patronage and status which ( they assume ) it brings; they expect everyone, Thai and foreign, to hang on their every word. They pnever in their wildest dreams expect to be regarded as a joke. If/when the awful realisation dawns, they will lash out. It is all they know how to do.

 

Unfortunately accurate analysis.
