Arisman jailed for one year for defaming Abhisit
By The Nation

 

BANGKOK: -- The Supreme Court on Friday upheld the Appeals Court’s conviction ruling against red-shirt leader Arisman Pongruangrong and sentenced him to one year in jail for defaming former prime minister Abhisit Vejjajiva.

 

The Supreme Court convicted Arisman on two counts of defamation – for defaming Abhisit on October 11, 2009 and on October 17, 2009 – when he addressed red-shirt protesters at the Democracy Monument and in front of the Government House. The speeches were also broadcast on People Channel satellite TV.

 

The court gave Arisman a six-month jail term for each count and declined to commute the penalty on the ground that he had also defamed the Royal institution.

 

Arisman was not present to hear the ruling as he is serving a four-year jail term after the Appeals Court convicted him for invading the Royal Cliff Beach Hotel in Pattaya to block the Asean Summit.

 

Arisman’s lawyer Supachai Chaosuankluay told The Nation that his defence team are in the process of appealing against the ruling in the Royal Cliff Beach case.

Whilst approx. 300 cops surrounded the hotel and didn't notice him coming down the front of the building clumsily on the tied bed sheets with lots of uniformed cops on each floor of the hotel trying to assist his descent, all live on many TV channels plus the cops supposedly searching inside also couldn't find him and miraculously his get away car was not noticed by the cops.

 

Any wonder the cops are seen as a sick joke and under the control of the fled paymaster, and frightened of the same, and with lots of talk about being on his 'payroll'.

Jail for making comments but community service and 7 years of haggling in the courts to get the compensation reduced for killing a van load of people, then the redbull idiot who kills a copper and enjoys life to the max putting his two fingers up to the law in this neck of the woods. Can one of the js lovers explain that to me please.

Well first point, most of the court decisions and police actions you elude too (and yes quite troubling and lacking in balance) happened way before the latest coup.

 

Given that fact did you object when these decisions happened / were published?

Objecting being a Farang is not on, but commenting yes many times and as the latest court case was this week and last week on both, its current so as you said quite troubling and lacking in balance by those uptop

He's a turd who should be in prison for other things. Meanwhile, the Red Bull turd must be packing up all his stuff for his imminent return and prison sentence.

But now the junta is in control, remember? So why haven't they sorted everything out? I mean, with article 44 and a government answerable to no one the junta still willfully ignore the "deficiencies" of the police. Maybe you, as a junta supporter, can explain?

I'm not a great fan of Abhisit - but his recent comments about the missing plaque showed at least some in the establishment care about what is going on in the broadest sense.

Don't be taking bets on this. If he is packing its to move on to the next jet set party. I am sure his passport is good to go as well.

The great thing about being a junta supporter is you are accountable to no-one and you have the guns. So therefore no need to explain.
