The courts are practicing double standards, attacking Thaksin and Thai Rak Thai/People’s Power Party corruption while ignoring illegal coups, mob violence and corruption by opposition politicians and the military.A story in Thursday's Bangkok Post provides the most recent evidence of this trend:
The Appeals Court on Thursday dropped insurrection charges against all PAD leaders, and core leaders Chamlong Srimuang and Chaiwat Sinsuwong won bail to return to the protest stage at the People's Alliance for Democracy.How is it that powerful PAD leaders like Sondhi choose to "surrender" to the court at their convenience?
The Appeals Court maintained two of the original five charges against the nine PAD leaders, but dismissed the controversial treason charge.
Sondhi Limthongkul and fellow PAD leaders said they would now surrender to the court. They had refused to report to authorities after the government filed charges last month.
