Thai Generals Don't Count

The Nation

Excerpt from "Thaksin petition will be thrown out":

"Meanwhile, Chulalongkorn University's Faculty of Political Sciences dean Charat Suwanmala lectured yesterday on petitioning for clemency, saying laws in most countries opposes amnesty for politicians convicted of conflict of interest.

"If politicians are sentenced to jail and a government siding with them legislates to grant amnesty, the justice system is under the influence of lawmakers and the government, and the balance of power is disrupted,'' he said."

I guess Charat will be calling for every general and military officer still alive and participated in a coup will have their legislative amnesties and executive pardons rescinded and will be tried for treason.
