The deaths in military custody of lese majeste suspects Prakrom Warunprapha and Suriyan Sujaritpalawong means that evidence of military wrongdoing on the the military’s homage to some monarchs at Rajabhakti Park.
That one of the military men accused in the corruption and royal-linked case – Col Khachachart Boondee – has fled the country also helps the high-level military figures involved and stymies investigations.
The Bangkok Post reports that “[a]n amulet trader accused of demanding millions of baht of commission fees during the construction of the Rajabhakti Park … has fled the country…”. How convenient is that. He is said to have flown out on a TG flight last Friday. He had already been “interviewed” about the case.
We can’t help but wonder if Jirawong Wattanathewasilp will appear in court today, as scheduled. He’s the ast survivor of the three men arrested for “lese majeste” in mid-October.
