BANGKOK — The Supreme Court on Friday rejected an attempt by pro-democracy activists to prosecute junta chairman Prayuth Chan-ocha for armed insurrection by staging his coup four years ago.

 

In today’s verdict, the court affirmed the rulings handed down by two lower courts dismissing the lawsuit. The activist who brought the case to the court warned it might set a precedent for other coup leaders in the future.

Supreme Court dismisses Resistant Citizen’s high treason case against military junta

By Thai PBS

The Supreme Court today upheld the earlier ruling of two lower courts to dismiss a lawsuit filed by 15  activists accusing junta chairman Gen  Prayut  Chan-o-cha and four military top brass of high treason for staging a coup d’etat against an elected government in 2014.

 

The highest court reasoned that what the military junta had done was not against the laws, and agreed with the rulings by the Court of First Instance and the Appeals Court to dismiss their lawsuits.

 

One of the 15 activists of the group Mr Anond Nampha said they respected and accepted the final ruling of the Supreme Court.

Except for the fact that it was against the laws of the country at that time. Just shows that the courts in Thailand don't follow the laws. I mean, the criminal code is not linked to the constitution - that's why during the time there was no constitution, you would still go to prison if you murdered someone.

The highest court reasoned that what the military junta had done was not against the laws“.

 Anyone care to define the word ‘reasoned’ as used in this sentence?
