    Pattaya police to summon core redshirt leaders for questioning over Asean Summit 2009 breakup

    Pattaya police said they will officially summon five core leaders of the United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) for questioning over their roles relevant to the storming by hundreds of redshirt protesters into the Royal Cliff Beach Hotel where the Asean Summit was being held in April 2009.

    Pattaya police superintendent Pol Col Apichai Krobpet identified the five core leaders as Jatuporn Promphan, Nattawut Saikur, Veerakarn Musikapong, Adisorn Piengket, and Weng Tochirakarn.

    The planned issuance of summons came after the Appeals Court on March 22 sentenced a core redshirt leader Arisman Pongruangrong and 12 other core members to four years in prison with no suspension of jail sentence after finding them guilty of forced entry to the hotel to disrupt the summit.

    The police chief of Pattaya made clear that they are to be summoned for questioning only for some information, while denying it will be arrest warrant.

    Three former UDD leaders acknowledge charges related to 2009 Asean Summit in Pattaya


    Three former co-leaders of the red-shirt movement or the United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship turned themselves in to Pattaya police on Monday to acknowledge charges against them for their role in the breakup of the Asean Summit in the resort city in 2009.

    Veerakarn Musikapong, Dr Weng Tochirakarn and Natthawuth Saikua showed up at Pattaya Muang district police station along with several supporters. They were informed of the charges against them, had their testimonies documented and finger prints stamped.

    They were released on bail after acknowledging the charges.

    Earlier, another red-shirt leader, Arisman Pongruangrong was sentenced to four years imprisonment for breaking up the Asean Summit.

    I don't suppose the Nevin organised and paid for mob, the 'blue shirts' that originally violently attacked the red shirt demonstrators, thus forcing them to retreat into the hotel and conference venue, will face any charges? There are many witnesses.


    Nah, didn't think so.

    Anyway, good- a major loss of face and embarrassment for Thailand.

    UDD leaders face charges for masterminding disruption of 2009 Asean summit in Pattaya


    Leaders of the red-shirt United Front of Democracy Against Dictatorship (UDD) would face criminal charges in Chon Buri for masterminding disruption of the Asean summit back in 2009, even though they were not in Pattaya during the incident, Pattaya police said on Monday.

    Senior UDD figures such as Jatuporn Promphan, Nattawut Saikua, Veerapong Musikapong and Weng Tojirakarn were in Bangkok during the incident, which resulted in the international summit having to be cancelled.

    Pol Colonel Sahas Horavichit, deputy commandant of Chon Buri police station, said the red-shirt leaders would – following a recent complaint – be charged for arranging for the assembly of more than 10 people for an unlawful purpose, as the UDD demonstration had caused disruption of the Asean summit.

    Sahas said police would also investigate the matter further and bring other suspects to justice.

    He insisted that although the suspects were not at the scene, they could still be charged as there was evidence that proved their criminal intent.

    The red-shirt leaders, who reported themselves to the police on Monday, said they questioned the procedure but were ready to cooperate.

    The case regarding the disruption of the summit has already been settled in two courts, but an additional complaint was filed only recently with the police to press charges against the red-shirt leaders despite the fact that they were not in Pattaya when the incident took place.

    Still no cake: http://www.nationmultimedia.com/news...gnews/30314665

    Even the BPaste and Notion admit that PT (latest morph) will likely win the next election. This ongoing, spiteful political persecution will only make it more inevitable. People ain't stoopid.

    The only 'embarrassment' is on the part of all the Red Shirt commie rabble-rousers who don't like this current phase of peacefulness LOS is enjoying.

    Commies.

    You are aware, right, that the popularly elected Thaksin government was the most capitalistic government this sad excuse for a nation has ever had? Economic results followed,

    Still, I suppose you are used to being the whipping boy by now, after all of these years. At least you have a sense of humor, irony. You might even be worth having a beer with sometime, if you could swallow your bile.
