Abhisit, the so called Oxford educated Prime Minister, is literally diving deep into ridicule, day after day, about the boat people scandal.
Under international pressure, he tries to play the western card, by showing that he’s willing to have open discussions with the UNCR (the UN agency wishes to have access to the refugees). Willing to cooperate…
The UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) has sought access to 126 Rohingya boat people believed to be held on Sai Daeng Island in the Andaman Sea.
However, the military told the Foreign Ministry yesterday it had “no clear information” about refugees in its custody that the UN wants to talk to.
Prime Minister Abhisit said: “We are glad to work with international organisations and concerned countries but they must understand that the problem does not begin here.“
The UN refugee agency had the right to inquire over possible rights violations but it must work on cooperative basis with proper procedures set by the Thai government, he said. (Nation)
Abhisit is apparently fool enough to think that he can fool people with the regular cheap thai rethoric. It’s amazing.
So to summarize he’s glad to talk to international organisations… but we have to understand that the problem does not begin in Thailand… Nice excuse. Wake me up, it’s a nightmare.
Does he mean that if the thai navy is killing refugees (sorry : sending them far away, adrift at sea, with no food and no water) it’s not a problem because the issue does not begin in Thailand… ?
And what about the pathetic call for the respect of the “proper procedures” ? Abhisit is like a child, caught smoking in the toilets, and who tries to not loose face.
As for the comment from the military (“no clear information“), it would be a shame if it was not hysterically dumb.
Change with Abhisit ? Yes we can’t.
I’ve got a moved thought for all the suckers who believed that Abhisit would bring change to the thai political life.
I hope that they start to understand better now…
