Multiplication of inane lese-majeste cases, an australian who rots in jail since august (for a book he wrote… and 7 copies were sold), the revolting boat people scandal… that’s a little bit too much for Abhisit’s shoulders and for his government.
The image of Thailand is literally sinking.
So let’s hope that they will do the right thing, and send back Nicolaides to Australia.
This insanity has to stop.
Foreign Minister Stephen Smith made the request in a letter to his Thai counterpart after Harry Nicolaides, 41, pleaded guilty this week to defaming the head of state, King Bhumibol Adulyadej, and his son.
“Now that the legal processes before Thailand’s courts have concluded, Australian officials have advised Thai officials that the Australian government strongly supports Mr. Nicolaides’s pardon application,” Smith said in a statement. (Bloomberg)
