Threat to revoke Thai citizenship - Bangkok Post, August 29, 2003
This brief article about revoking Thai citizenship for ethnic
Chinese indicates another radical change in policy towards drugs.
Chinese villages in the area mentioned are dominated by descendants
of the Kuomintang (Chinese Nationalist Party), which left China
in 1949 after the Communists gained power. The 93rd regiment
of the KMT first moved to Burma and fought for many years against
the Burmese before moving to Thailand in the 1960s and being
given refugee status. They were permitted to traffic drugs in
the ensuring decades. Putting pressure on these groups signals
a change in a decades-old policy of looking the other way in
regards to the area's drug trafficking and probably indicates
PM Thakin's confidence in dealing with those in power who have
interests in the drug trade.
