Evidence Thai troops killed Japanese cameraman

Evidence Thai troops killed Japanese cameraman – AFP, November 19, 2011
…”Under Thai criminal law a security official may be exempted if he acted on his commander’s order, but there must be people responsible for the incident who gave the order,” Chalerm told Ambassador Seiji Kojima.
“I think this case will be fought through the courts,” he added.
Kojima thanked Chalerm for his assurances that the government will establish the truth about Muramoto’s death.
[AFP attempts to point out the divided and extremely partisan nature of Thai politics now, but misses the real meaning here of what Charlerm is saying. He is signalling that unless the establishment relents on some sort of pardon on Thaksin, the government will engage in activities considered very undesirable in the Thai world–open accusations and truth-telling.]
