She could end up sharing a cell with Blair and Bush if PMs are held criminally accountable.

On that basis, every former PM or President in 'Western' countries would be in prison.

Wouldn't it be interesting if, after every former PM or President in Western countries had left power, there were to be a popular-vote on how long a prison-sentence they would then have to serve ? :whistling:

 

I can think of several whom I wouldn't mind seeing behind-bars ! And some who should be serving Life !

 

And it might discourage some of the more venal ones from attempting to gain power in the first place ? :cool:

 

Oh well, back to Reality  ...  :coffee1:

The Yellows' heads will literally explode. They'll be breaking out the hand-clappers and whistles from storage.

 

I assume there is still a way, another set of charges to be ginned up, to convict her of a minor crime (with no jail time) which would prevent her from running for political office for the next 100 years. (Or, that may well have already been done?)

 

The precedent of imprisoning a PM for faulty government program might be too much, save for a banana republic?

 

Good thing the junta gave themselves a blanket amnesty.

Prayuth and his people were smart giving themselves immunity on day one.

And if they have been criminally derelict in their duties and ignored strong warnings from well respected people / bodies they should be.

There have been strong warnings and evidence that the economic capacity of countries where coups take place goes down. We won't of course see the self-amnestied coup makers held to account for this.

IMHO I don't think it matters whether she is guilty of this and that or not, 'someone' wants to get at the 'man abroad'. If there is a 'not guilty' verdict then 'someone' will simply find another way.

"....strong line of defence was that she had no “special intention” to cause damage ...."

Well, I suppose Vorayuth (Ferrari), Jenphob (Benz), Praewa na Ayuttaya (Honda) all had no "special intention" to kill their victims. Twisted logic?

Whichever way Yingluck's verdict goes, tens of thousands will be pissed off.

Not 100% right

 

Not Guilty Yes 10 of thousands will

Guilty it will be 10 of Millions

 

but that is life in los

Ratcatcher, there will be just as many people who will be thrilled at an aquital.

At least 60% Thailand and more pointedly the majority of the army conscripts who the Junta are currently relying on.

Whichever way the verdict goes, nothing will happen until after October.

 

Then the fun will really begin. 

Absolutely true
