Thaienews would like to present the evidence to our readers’ consideration, that this is NOT ‘about payback politics’, but a crime, a massacre, that both of them have to face the consequences.
They were not witnesses of the crime, but perpetrators of the crime.
1. The following document is the Internal ‘Top Secret’ government document that both Suthep Thaugsuban and Colonel Sansern Kaewkamnerd acknowledged that it was genuine.
The essence of the document is that it showed Abhisit Vejjajiva, the Prime Minister at the time, was the one who issued the order through Suthep Thaugsuban with acknowledgement from the Army Chief, ordering the military to disperse the protesters, which resulted in 92 deaths, over 2,000 injuries, and more than 400 protesters arrested.
2. The following is the ‘Lessons Learned’ document from the military ‘Information operation’, which really a ‘Misinformation operation’, accusing the Red Shirt demonstrators as ‘terrorists’. This misinformation operation laid groundwork for ‘license to kill’ and created an environment for the people to be more amenable to the military actions.
The essence of this document is that it showed the effectiveness of the ‘Information operation’. Through coordinated operations of the government and the military, many Thais were brainwashed into supportive of the military actions. With Thai media constantly showing the burning images of Central World department store, Siam Theater amongst others, had created impression that the Red shirts were criminal, arsonists, and deserved to die.
3. The following is the ‘Lessons Learned’ document from the ‘Tighten the Cordon operation’ used in dispersing the protesters.
Lesson 7The essence of this document is that it was clear from the start among the military apparatus that the government had plan to use the military force to pressure the United Front of Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD). They used the military to cordon off the site to pressure the protesters to end the occupation, not to bring back negotiation. On 12 May, then Prime Minister Abhisit, while in the meeting of the Centre for the Resolution of the Emergency Situation (CRES), ordered the military to activate the plan.
This ‘Tighten the Cordon operation’ is a military ‘battle’ plan against the protesters which employed heavy military machineries such as tanks, live ammunitions, and snipers to cordon off the protest site preventing people from going in or out.
4. The following document listed the names of the military commanders involved in the operations on 10 April-19 May 2010.
The essence of the document is that it showed place and time of the military personnel who involved in the operations. It also listed the names and places of protesters killed from the operations, which can be used to implicate those involved.
5. The following is the document from the Truth for Reconciliation Commission of Thailand (TRCT), which Abhisit commissioned. As part of its missions, the TRCT was to investigate and determine the truth about the violence that occurred during April-May 2010. It founded that at least 13 protester deaths were from the military actions.

The essence of the report is that at least 13 protester deaths were from the government actions. The report did not mention the so-called ‘Men in Black’ were responsible for any protesters’ death during 10 April-19 May 2010. Investigations into these deaths either by the police or the Department of Special Investigation (DSI) were tainted with political interference, no attempts to bring those responsible to justice. The report did not support any amnesty plan.

6. From the Wongsak Sawasdipanich’s Interview on Suthep’s shotguns request
The Matichon-Weekly issued number 1618 dated 19-25 August 2011 had a report on Wongsak’s refusal to order the provincial governors to turnovers the 300 shotguns to Suthep.
Wongsak said that Suthep phoned him and asked him to turnover 300 shotgun rifles to CRES, but he refused because it was beyond his authority.
He expressed disagreement with using force to settle conflicts no matter what ‘color of shirts’ you are. The conflict should be settled through dialog, not under barrel of a gun. This perhaps made him got transferred from director-general of the Provincial Administration. He later got his old job back.
7. TRCT unveiled charges against Red Shirts were ‘Inflated’
Somchai Hom-laor, chairman of the TRCT’s fact finding subcommittee, said many charges filed against Red Shirts had been inflated and now 53 Red Shirts faced accusations of arson and terrorism, carrying a maximum penalty of death.
He also said police investigators and public prosecutors admitted to being pressured by the Abhisit Vejjajiva government’s policy makers to inflate charges and they had ended up filing ‘indiscriminate’ charges against the Red Shirts demonstrators.
“The feeling of the [Red Shirts] demonstrators is that they are victims of a one-sided judicial process while state officers who have committed crimes to a greater or lesser extent are not being put through the judicial process.” Somchai said according to the Nation.
8. DSI had the policy that ‘came from the top’ to blame the Red Shirts as much as possible.
In the BBC documentary, Thailand – Justice Under Fire, reported a conversation with anonymous DSI official who stated that:
“The DSI has policy to blame the Red Shirts as much as possible. If the perpetrators could not be found, blame the Red Shirts. If you could not find who fired the shot, you have to assume that the Red Shirts and their supporters did it. This order was from the chief of the DSI”.
9. Col Sansern claimed the order to use force came from Mark and Tuek
On 15 November 2011, Col Sansern Kaewkamnerd, spokesperson of the Centre for the Resolution of the Emergency Situation (CRES), said during the police investigations into the bloody crackdown of the protesters during April-May 2010 that CRES came into existence through the executive order of then Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva, while Suthep Thaugsuban as deputy prime minister and CRES chairman.
He stated that the military will not be able to use force in dispersing the Red Shirts without having order from CRES which got its order from Abhisit and Suthep.
10. Suthep admitted at Rachaprasong that he was the one who issued the order.
During the July-3-election rally at Rachaprasong, Suthep Thaugsuban admitted that he ordered everything; “Mark had nothing to do with it”, he was quoted as saying.
I ordered everything I am responsible
From the above documents, eye-witnesses, and reports; is it safe to say that Mark-and-Tuek, were the perpetrators and should be responsible for their crimes?
Is it too much to ask for their arrests and prosecutions? What kind of justice would they receive--- the same as the Red Shirt Arisman Pongruangrong who was denied bail for afraid of fleeing, or something special for the elites?
