DSI urged to reveal findings on Pathum Wanaram Temple killings

The mother of a paramedic killed at Pathum Wanaram Temple on 19 May has urged the Department of Special Investigation to reveal the results of autopsies carried out on those who were killed and protested against the indefinite postponement in announcing the results by the DSI Director-General.

On 8 Nov, Phayao Akkahad, mother of Kamonkade, told reporters at the DSI that she was disappointed that the agency had indefinitely postponed its announcement of the autopsy results.  She believed that it had acquired plenty of evidence, and many witnesses had been summoned for interrogation. 

She said that the DSI staff had been active on their work, but its senior officers did not want to reveal the information to the public and family members of those who were killed.  The agency should at least report any progress it has made, and it has promised to finish the investigation in 45 days, she said.

However, some DSI officials insisted to her that progress had been made in the investigation, and if she wanted any specific information, she could call and ask.  The announcement of the findings will take place soon, because the press have continued to follow this issue, the officials said.       

When asked about the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, she said that she had not heard anything from them, not even a phone call or a letter.

The Thai government

The Thai government 'investigating' itself is as valid as the Burmese 'election'.

The DSI spent their time planting1 pornography on a laptop computer that Phra Supoj had used when they were tasked with 'investigating' Phra Supoj Suvacano's brutal murder. Their 'job' as they saw it was to impugn the victim, to make sure there was NO investigation into Phra Supoj's murder, and to make sure that the murderers' stayed free.

You can rest assured their goals and consequent MO are unchanged in the present instance.

The DSI is just another clan in the greater crime-family that is the government of Thailand. There will be no change in Thailand, or anywhere else on this earth, unless and until it comes bottom-up from the people.

1The first line of the Bangkok Post article cited above :

A team of investigators was so obsessed with the sexual activities of a murdered monk that it bungled the inquiry, the Department of Special Investigation says.

There were no sexual activities to obsessed with.

The Bangkok Post knew that yet they printed that libelous, let alone defamatory, line at the very top of their 'report' in an vile, slimy attempt to ameliorate the every-bit-as-vile act by the DSI itself.

The Regime, the DSI, the Bangkok Post... all institutions so vile and corrupt as to seem beyond redemption.

There is no hope from of ANY truth at all about ANYTHING at all EVER coming from the DSI... or the Bangkok Post.

@JFL: It's easy to sink into

@JFL:

It's easy to sink into that bleak state of mind isn't it? In the face of so much evidence that Thailand is irredeemably corrupt from the very top to the very bottom, and that Thais managed to get an integrity and ethics by-pass at some stage during the top-down propagandising during the past several self-congratulatory decades.

But the country and those Thais whom I would describe as 'good people' (yes, that means the people who think as I do and with whom I resonate, so it is a subjective and relative description) are collectively worth saving.

People who point out what they believe is the bad and highlight what they believe is the good help, if only a little.

But the country and those

But the country and those Thais whom I would describe as 'good people' (yes, that means the people who think as I do and with whom I resonate, so it is a subjective and relative description) are collectively worth saving.

And they are in the overwhelming majority! It is perhaps 4% of the population, the PAD, the so-called Bangkok "elite" who have the lock on power... because of their partnership with the military and their guns.

The majority certainly have the power to overcome... and I certainly hope and expect they will!
