Thaksin’s “Asylum” Announcement:

“Regarding the non-appearance at the Supreme Court”

 

From Sovereign Myth

The following is my rough and quick translation of Thaksin’s announcement from England, 11th August, regarding his non-appearance at the Supreme Court of Thailand.
***************************************

“Firstly, I would like to apologize to the judges involved in the Rachadapisek land case and to all my Thai brothers and sisters who have supported me, for traveling to England – a country that holds to the principle of democracy above all else – without reporting to the Supreme Court division for Political Office Holders.
Those things that have happened to me, my family and those who are close to me, are a product of the attempt to eliminate me from politics, by assassination and subsequently by the coup d’état. [The coup group] appointed antagonistic individuals to pursue cases against me, and to draft a constitution that preserved dictatorial power; and appointed those who supported the coup into the various organs in order to pursue me.

After the election on 23 December 2007, the majority of the people voted for the People’s Power Party, the majority of whose members were former members from Thai Rak Thai [Thaksin’s old party] to return to their duties as representatives of the people.I thought the situation was improving and that I would have the opportunity to prove my innocence, and receive justice, thus I returned to Thailand on the 28 February 2008.But the situation got worse; and the things that happened to me and my family were like the fruit of a poison tree, the fruit from such a tree is poison: the preservation of dictatorship by managing democracy and interfering in the justice system… to eliminate me and my family, by those who consider me their political enemy. They do so with no concern for the legal system… or the universal rule of law, whether it is in regard to witness evidence or the use of retrospective measures; they did not use the principles of the rule of law and the legal state. My family and I have been subject to continuous injustice.

The obvious interference in the justice system and the use of double standards that denies justice to me and my family and those involved can not be compared to the fact that the country’s long-standing processes of justice and the esteemed organizations involved have now degenerated; their politicization and lack of neutrality is a great loss to the country.

Besides this, my life has been under threat and wherever I traveled I have had to use bullet proof vehicles: this is what I get from giving myself to the nation, the palace and the people with great energy for six years as prime minister
I thus apologize one more time that I have had to make this decision to live in England, and I affirm that:

1 My family and I are inestimably loyal to the monarchy and to all members of the royal family, even though there are those who have slanderously suggested otherwise.

2 While I am not perfect, I am not as bad as I have been accused of being. When the appropriate time comes, I will declare the truth for all to know; today, is not my day, to my supporters, please continue to be patient.

3. Like all Thai people, if I have good fortune I request to die on Thai soil.

With respect and love,

Police Lieutenant Thaksin Shinawatra

  1. You tell me who is the Dictator in Thailand?

  2. I’m one of the majority Thai people who wish for Thaksin to come back.Now Thailand has been drawn much backward.Everthing is deteriorated.It is difficult to understand why does our hero have to suffer like this.We know he (and also his family) had been treated unfairly.We hope there must be one day that he will return.Thailand needs the good and the bright people to lead the country.Thaksin is the best and the brightest we have ever had.We pray for you,my dear Thaksin…we are still waiting for you…and wish you all the best.

  3. I lOve PAD

    PAD fight for our country!!!

  4. Thaksin is the best and the brightest we have ever had.We pray for you,my dear Thaksin…we are still waiting for you…and wish you all the best.

    YES,I agree with You.
    And I hope Thailand to Be TRUE Democracy SOON.

  5. I don’t care who you are I love my king not you !! Corruption !!! Liar !!! Check your jail id !!!

  6. We love our king. We hate everything that try to destroy our king. Thaksin why don’t you get back to face the truth. I beleive that Thaksin can do everyting for himself even the thing he want to do is so much violent , negative impact significatly to Thailand and our king.

  7. love thaksin forever

    you are hero of thai peoples

  8. “We love our king. We hate everything that try to destroy our king. Thaksin why don’t you get back to face the truth. I beleive that Thaksin can do everyting for himself even the thing he want to do is so much violent , negative impact significatly to Thailand and our king.”

    I agree with you.

    I LOVE THE KING.
    LONG LIVE THE KING.
    รักในหลวง ขอพระองค์จงทรงพระเจริญยิ่งยืนนาน

    If Thaksin not wrong, why he do not come back to Thailand?

  9. Why would Thaksin come back to Thailand when people who is against him would go as far as killing him. You all saw what happened to one of the leaders of the readshirts? If he comes back to Thailand he won’t even get the chance to explain without getting killed. I belive that Thaksin is not against the monarcy, but his intellect frigtens the Thai people. Don’t you see that Thailand is a much worse place after he went? He did all good for you. Eventhough it was not perfect. All the redshirts want’s is true democracy, and if you really cared about Thailand, you would make a re-election. Thaksin does not have to be the leader, but clearly the primeminister you have now, is not doing well for the Thai people. Why not make a compromise and settle this once for all. Do you really want Thailand to go under?

  10. If it is true democracy now, then why not make a re-election? I you are so sure that the government now is the one that people wants? And by people i mean the majority, since you all call it democracy?
