Mass Graves Found In The South

Recommended Posts

Abhisit calls on Govt to explain alleged mass graves

Democrat Party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva Sunday called on the government to explain alleged mass graves in the deep South which over 500 bodies were reportedly found.

Caretaker senator Kraisak Chonhavan made the allegations on Saturday, saying the graves had been found in southern border provinces by Khunying Pornthip Rojanasunan, acting director of the Forensic Science Institute.

Abhisit said he had learnt that the bodies appeared to have die in late 2004.

Abhisit said the government must clear the doubt over the issue as it would affect the on-going violence in the deep South.

The Nation

What a sad thing to be discovered. There has been a lot of bloodshed in the south, mainly since a certain party took control of the helm. The recent lychings of two school teachers was horrid enough and the media has made such a blown up case over this. I can only wonder how much attention this will get.

Some 300 unmarked graves found two months ago

That these graves where found 2 months ago and we are only now getting to hear about it suggests that there has been some kind of response from the government.

And I agree, very low.

Don't think so. :D

But Pornthip said the finding has raised new concerns about human rights abuses in the region where 1,200 people have died in two years of unrest.

80 percent of them were killed??? :o

Therefore, this government are blaming on the southern insurgency and pushing away all responsibilities.

No surprise with that at all. Given the war on drugs, "It was the dealers who killed everyone!' Tak Bai Massacre, "It was an honest mistake. Really, we didn't know when people are hog-tied and piled atop one another, they will suffocate in the brutal heat." The disappearance of a Thai human rights lawyer, Somchai Neelaphaijit. "No worry, he and his wife had an arguement is all."

How much lower will this go. Tsunami? I don't think that is a factor at all. I am not aware that Yala and Narathiwat were hot spots for the tsunami.

If they are wrong about the dates, I would guess that these bodies were hidden after the May 1992 unrest in Bangkok. Lots of eye witnesses said many more people were killed during that incident than the Government ever admitted.

Where are THOSE bodies? :o

The first question is still, why does it take 2 months of this to reach the Press?
