  4. Amnesty International urges Thailand to revoke repressive laws The Thai government had declared human rights a national agenda, but what had happened in reality were on the contrary as human rights violations continue unabated, said Amnesty International Thailand’s Director Piyanut Kotsan. The human rights group called on the Thai authorities to revoke the Head of the NCPO Oder no. 3/2558 and other “repressive laws” that infringe on freedom of expression and peaceful assembly, to bring an end to arbitrary detention, to stop trying civilians in the military court. Amnesty International (AI) today (Feb 22) launched the “Amnesty International Report 2017/2018: The State of the World’s Human Rights” which documents and analyzes the state of human rights in 159 countries around the world in the past 2017. It was found, according to the AI, countries including Thailand have imposed severe restrictions on freedom of expression and peaceful assembly. “Amnesty International has found in 2017, human rights defenders; environmental activists; students; villagers demanding community rights; lawyers; media; academics; and active citizens in Thailand continued to endure a strenuous clampdown on their freedom of expression, either by the state or private sector,” the AI said in its statement. The AI pointed out that the laws that have often been invoked included: Section 44 of the 2014 Interim Constitution; Section 116 of the Penal Code; The Computer Crimes Act; The Head of the NCPO Oder no. 3/2558, which contain provisions or are interpreted not in compliance with international human rights standards that Thailand is obliged to follow.

    ‘Robbed’ woman apologises for damaging taxi drivers’ reputation By The Nation A woman who has confessed to filing a false complaint with police claiming a taxi driver had robbed her, has apologised for damaging the reputation of all taxi drivers.

  8. ‘Robbed’ woman apologises for damaging taxi drivers’ reputation By The Nation A woman who has confessed to filing a false complaint with police claiming a taxi driver had robbed her, has apologised for damaging the reputation of all taxi drivers. Thongprakai Suksriraj, 26, issued the apology during a press conference held at the Metropolitan Police Bureau at 11.30am on Thursday. She filed a complaint with the Lard Prao police station at 3.45am on Wednesday, claiming to have been robbed of a handbag with Bt14,000 in cash at the Nida intersection while taking a taxi from an entertainment venue in the Ratchada area to her condominium in the Seri Thai area. Thongprakai said she cut her own left arm with a razor due to the stress she developed after being left to raise her child alone. She said she lied to a friend to whom she owed money, and the friend took her to file the complaint with police out of genuine concern for her. “The wounds were self-inflicted with a razor. I did it under stress,” she told the media. “At that moment, I thought there was no way out. I felt under tremendous pressure. “Now, the stress is heavier,” she said. "I filed the complaint because my friend led me to, because she was concerned about me. She thought [my story] was real, so the issue escalated out of control." Raising her hands in a wai, Thongprakai said: “I would like to offer my apology to all taxi drivers for damaging their reputation.” Lard Prao police chief Pol Colonel Passakorn Ratanapanadda said Thongprakai faces two counts of charges, including filing false statements with the authorities, which carries a maximum jail term of three years and a maximum fine of Bt5,000. Thongprakai was also charged with violating the computer crime act by posting false information after posting the lie about the robbery on her Facebook wall. The charge carries a maximum jail term of five years and a maximum fine of Bt100,000. Source: http://www.nationmultimedia.com/detail/breakingnews/30339466 -- © Copyright The Nation 2018-2-22

  10. 11 passengers injured as bus crashes into tree By The Nation Eleven passengers were injured when an air-conditioned bus in Bangkok crashed into a tree on a slippery road following rains on Thursday. Pol Lt-Colonel Chitawan Nua-on, deputy inspector of Ratburana Police Station, said the accident happened in front of the Ratburana district office at 11.30am. Bus No Por-Or 6 plying the Bang Lamphu-Phra Pradaeng route crashed into a large roadside tree on Ratburana Road. Many of the 11 passengers suffered head injuries and bruises. They were rushed to the Suksawat Hospital. Driver Thongsuk said his bus was heading to the Phra Pradaeng stop and most passengers were getting ready to get off when he lost control of the bus. He said the road was slippery and the wornout bus tyres could not grip properly. He said that as he lost control, he saw many vehicles on the right lane so he decided to stop the bus by crashing it into the tree instead of the other vehicles. Chitawan said police would interrogate the injured passengers before deciding whether to charge the bus driver.

    Government defends its corruption-fighting record By The Nation As he covers his eyes to avoid the sun, Deputy Premier and Defence Minister General Prawit Wongsuwan (centre, bottom row) displays a luxury watch he is wearing, during a photo call with other members of a new cabinet in Bangkok on December 4, 2017. The government has defended its record despite the country’s failure to achieve significant improvement in international rankings on public-sector corruption, and insists that the luxury-watch scandal involving deputy premier General Prawit Wongsuwan is not related to the unimpressive ranking.

  12. Government defends its corruption-fighting record By The Nation As he covers his eyes to avoid the sun, Deputy Premier and Defence Minister General Prawit Wongsuwan (centre, bottom row) displays a luxury watch he is wearing, during a photo call with other members of a new cabinet in Bangkok on December 4, 2017. The government has defended its record despite the country’s failure to achieve significant improvement in international rankings on public-sector corruption, and insists that the luxury-watch scandal involving deputy premier General Prawit Wongsuwan is not related to the unimpressive ranking. Thailand’s ranking in the latest global Corruption Perception Index 2017 rose to 96 from 101 last year. Thailand scored 37 this year, up from 35 last year. The index, prepared by Transparency International, ranks 180 countries and territories by perceived levels of public-sector corruption. Nine key sources are used to compile the index, including the International Country Risk Guide, Economist Intelligence Unit, and the World Economic Forum’s Executive Opinion Survey. The ranking uses a scale of 0 to 100, in which 0 is “highly corrupt” and 100 is “very clean”. “I don’t know. But the score has nothing to do with the [watch] matter,” Deputy Prime Minister Wissanu Krea-ngam replied on Thursday when asked if Thailand’s score improved only slightly due to the scandal involving Prawut’s apparently extensive collection of luxury watches. Regarding concern that the score had dropped due to lack of efficiency in scrutinising corruption among government employees, National Anti-Corruption Commission chairman Pol General Watcharapol Prasarnrajkit said that no country was able to thoroughly investigate corruption.

  14. Up to Prawit to resign from advising anti-graft body, says co-deputy PM Wissanu By The Nation This December 4, 2017 photo shows the ruling junta’s second-in-command, Deputy PM General Prawit Wongsuwan, covering his eyes while displaying a watch he is wearing during a photo call with other members of a new cabinet in Bangkok. / AFP PHOTO It is up to luxury watch-wearing Deputy PM General Prawit Wongsuwan to decide whether he will step down from advising a government anti-graft body, said Deputy PM Wissanu Krea-ngam on Thursday. Wissanu was responding to a call for PM General Prayut Chan-o-cha, to ask Prawit to resign from advising the board of directors of the Centre for National Anti-Corruption (CNAC). “To resign or not it’s up to Prawit,” responded Wissanu. “And to oust him or not, it depends on another person.” Prawit has never attended meetings of the CNAC, he added. Tortrakul Yomnak, chairman of a CNAC sub-committee of the board, submitted a letter to Prayut on behalf of the board chairman. The letter called on Prayut to take action against Prawit, by asking the scandal-clad deputy PM to resign from the post. Prawit has been hit with an ongoing watch scandal since last December, when he was first seen wearing a luxury watch costing more than Bt2 million and a diamond ring. Prawit later was exposed by social media for wearing around 25 luxury watches with a worth estimated to exceed Bt30 million, and failing to declare them in his assets listing to the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC). The agency is investigating the origin of the watches. Prawit said they were borrowed from his friends, some of whom had died, and had already returned them to their owners.
