Chuwit says Suthep alone cannot topple Thaksin regime

Recommended Posts

@arminbkk. Someone we just might not be able to mention on this forum. Sorry for the indirect reply, but for the past two days this forum has prevented me from making quoted replies.

I hate Chuwit with a passion for what he instigated 10+ years ago without any real consequences on Sukhumvit, before he even became a MP.

I personally knew someone who committed suicide because of his actions.

There is always an ulterior motive with this man.

Do you also know the full story? or is it what you heard from someone about someone who told someone?

The full story is out there Lemoncake.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chuwit_Kamolvisit

In January 2003, Chuwit was accused of having hired some 600 men to raze several bars, shops, a laundry and a travel agency on "Sukhumvit Square", a plot of land he owns at Sukhumvit Soi 10. This was an apparent attempt to remove the low rent tenants so the land could be developed. The tenants had been led to believe they had valid leases from another company and were not notified of the raid, which took place very early on a Sunday morning. Chuwit was arrested and spent a month in jail. He denied responsibility and was finally released on bail.

It's been some time, obviously, but I use to go there almost every day around this time. I knew the owner of an internet cafe there and use to play pool at one of the bars in the early afternoons. I was there the day before and there the day it was demolished. It was horrible.

From my hazy memory, somebody was subletting without Chuwit's permission. Everybody had been warned, but they believed it was OK as this other person promised them he had a contract. Which he didn't. Warnings were given, but nobody heeded them.

A dastardly act for sure. The guy who owned the internet cafe lost everything. The army guys retreated to their base so they wouldn't be arrested. I remember the police waiting outside the gates to arrest the guy in charge of the crew. Horrible.

Absolutely spot on, and as sad as it is people lost everything, do keep in mind Chuwit was also out of pocket and then also donated the land to the city

Everybody lost, only the Indian guy made nice dosh

He didn't raze several bars, shops etc ... it was several dozen. A lot of very good people running very legitimate businesses - bars, craft shops, souvenir shops, clothes shops, salons - were ruined because of him.

At this very moment, there are portions of Chinatown where people who have run businesses for decades are being turned out by the owner of the property and their leases suddenly terminated. Let's see you dare to criticize that owner.

And who might that owner be?

Don't ask questions that cannot be answered. Do some research and it will become clear.

You answered my question already.

Suthep should be in police custody already! How can a law breaker judge a government?

How can a convicted criminal run a country?

As far as I am concerned he (Thaksin) does not run the Thai government. The fact is PM Yingluck runs the Thai government very efficiently and it is the criminals that are trying to bring her government down.

If the 'opposition' do succeed in bringing down the government, it will be a very sad day for loyal Thai citizens. and a tragedy for Asean leaders want to see a stable and prosperous Thailand at ASEAN's center.

I know that some Thai people want cash and blood now. However the majority of the Thai people have waited sixty-seven years for Thailand to elect a Thai Government that works for all of the Thai people all of the time.

"the Thai people have waited sixty-seven years for Thailand to elect a Thai Government that works for all of the Thai people all of the time."

and they're still waiting. They're obviously not going to get it from this government.

If you believe that Thaksin doesn't control the government, that is your prerogative. However reality tells us differently. Thaksin has always controlled TRT, PPP and now PTP. He would have it no other way.

Yingluck, bless her, is his youngest sister and a very attractive lady but she merely drives the bus, he is the conductor and what he says goes.

Why do you think these PT ministers and toadies fly back and forth to Dubai, Hong Kong or whatever exotic locale Thaksin has chosen for lunch? Why do you think he Skypes in his orders to the government?

At this very moment I suspect Mr Thaksin is a very worried person.

If the opposition movement and its broad ranging support manage to surgically and efficiently put this government out of its misery it will be a bright day for Thailand and a day of celebration for loyal Thais.

I am sure the leaders of ASEAN are wondering what on earth is going on with this present (now recessed) government.

Eventually, something had to give in, so Chuwit build Chuwit Garden and donated it to the people of Bangkok.

He wasn't so charitable.

The courts ordered him to do it .

If I remember correctly it had to be parkland for minimum 5 years which has expired by now. He may have since donated it however.

So Chuwit owned the land, people were using the land with no legal right to do so, and he removed them. Is this not something any landowner anywhere has the right to do?

Indy Indy Indy .... you must be trolling!

I can't think of a single person outside of PTP and their convicted criminal financier that would make that statement publicly .... and I can't think of one that would say it privately even including PTP and Thaksin :) Remember there is only the one convicted criminal that we can talk about :)

No in a normal society, razing everything that is on the land, in the middle of the night, by some demolition crew is NOT the way to reprosses your land. In a normal society (and in this case Thailand included) you go to a court of law and if the owner is well within his right, businesses get prior notification that they need to vacate the premises, with the added advantage that they can secure their belongings.

Turning the lot into Chuwit park was part of his get out of jail card..

Do you have a link to court ruling, because i never heard he was ordered by the court.

He was disliked and that was the reason from my knowledge and there was no stature or time frame. Chuwit garden has been there for as long as i can remember.

It has full time staff and is cleaned daily, all paid by Chuwit
