สัญญลักษณ์สันติภาพ ที่ยิ่งลักษณ์ใส่ห้อยคอ มันกะจะบอกให้ชาวโลกรู้ว่า มันนะเป็นพวก peacemaker แต่ในความเป็นจริงที่อยู่ในคอมัน สมควรจะเป็นรูปนี้มากกว่า CR.เส้นทางสู่การปฏิรูปประเทศไทย
The accusation was made in a statement issued by the NSC officials led by Mr Pornchart Bunnag, NSC deputy secretary-general, which was read at the protest stage of the People’s Democratic Reform Committee at Lumpini park Thursday night.
In her capacity as the chair of the NSC, the statement said that the prime minister had never convened a meeting of the NSC to discuss the problems which can be interpreted as meaning that the prime minister has abetted or condoned the wrongdoings.
Army bunkers to be adjusted to look more friendly
Today, Yingluck was at it again. She said something like the military bunkers on the streets – the ones protecting us – were damaging the image of democracy. Gen. Prayuth therefore asked whether the bunkers should be decorated in pink to make them more appealing. What an excellent response.
March 5 – China National Cereals, Oils and Foodstuffs Corporation (COFCO) today agreed to buy one million tonnes of rice from Thailand, according to Thailand’s Foreign Trade Department.
A memorandum of understanding (MoU) was signed by COFCO and the Foreign Trade Department. The move was aimed to release rice in the Thai government’s stockpiles and to increase the proportion of Thai rice in China.
COFCO is one of China’s state-owned food processing holding companies.
Foreign Trade Department’s director-general Surasak Riengkrue said department representatives were in China yesterday and today for rice purchase negotiations and closer trading relations between the two parties.
The meeting was a success, he said, for the MoU was signed, with rice to be shipped to China in a series of shipments within 12 months. The first lot of rice is to be transported from March to July at 400,000 tonnes, with the end of March aiming at 100,000 tonnes of rice to be delivered.
Mr Surasak said this MoU is a positive sign that China shows interests to buy more rice from Thailand.
The Foreign Trade Department will promote and invite Thai rice entrepreneurs to offer rice prices and improve rice quality to deliver to COFCO soonest as stated in the contract.
He added that Thailand is negotiating with other countries to sell more rice and expected to succeed in signing government-to-government agreements with several more countries.
The department also plans to release rice by inviting interested entrepreneurs to offer bids to buy rice in the government’s stockpiles next Monday at 500,000 tonnes. MCOT
The UDD supporters are ready to fight anyone who rises against Yingluck – which means us – and will amass arms and weapons, including by arming police troops and the family members of police.
They have denounced the judiciary, noting that no courts can be trusted, so they will travel into Bangkok to shut down the courts and other independent agencies. As you may have seen in the news today, the date on which Yingluck was supposed to come hear the NACC charges against her, the UDD supporters cemented the gates of the NACC .
CAUSE SHE HAS TO SPEAK AND ANSWER WITHOUT ANY SCRIBD
CHIANG MAI, Feb 27 – Caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra today declined her political opponent Suthep Thaugsuban’s challenge to a verbal duel on resolving Thailand’s political conflict.
Mr Suthep, secretary general of the People’s Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC), said he was ready for a dialogue with Ms Yingluck, or even ousted prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra, anytime and anywhere in Bangkok on the condition that it must be a one-on-one negotiation and broadcast live to the public.
Ms Yingluck said she agreed to a negotiation under the constitutional framework on the condition that Mr Suthep must end the rallies to pave the way for elections, and the issues for the talks must be clearly defined.
“If the dialogue is held beyond the constitutional framework, knowledgeable people from different fields must participate and make joint decisions. I myself cannot decide on behalf of people in the entire nation,” she said.
“If we share a similar framework, negotiation is possible, otherwise it’s difficult to talk. I myself agree with negotiations for peace but I need someone to help look at other problem-solving perspectives. We should not close the framework for negotiations.”
Asked if the negotiation should be broadcast live, Ms Yingluck said she alone could not answer the question and opinions from several people would be more beneficial as there would be knowledgeable people to jointly find resolutions.
She added, “There should be a framework at a certain stage to know who will do what. If we don’t have a framework, the dialogue will be endless. A framework will lead us to the goal. It’s useless if we keep on talking in parallel.
“Upholding democracy doesn’t mean the other side will be the loser or the winner. We have to cherish the nation without obstinacy. I want the nation and the people to win.”
She said the government welcomed advice from the United Nations which is experienced in resolving national conflicts but people in the country would have to eventually find their own solutions.
Mr Vicha Mahakhun, NACC spokesman and head of the team investigating Ms Yingluck’s role in the fake rice deal with China, said today (Tuesday) that the right to copy the documents was exclusive to the accused, in this case the prime minister, and that she could not assign anybody or a lawyer to do on her behalf although she could assign someone to acknowledge the charge.
He admitted that he had not been notified by Ms Yingluck whether she would show up or not or whether she would ask for a postponement in which case the NACC would consider whether the postponement request was reasonable or not.
But if the prime minister does not want to acknowledge the charge, the NACC will notify her about the charge by mail, said Mr Vicha.
He explained that even if the prime minister was formally charged only the Senate could vote her out of the office.
The NACC spokesman disclosed that he was approached by former Pheu Thai MPs asking whether the commission could be lenient with her. He said he told the ex-MPs that the NACC would not be an independent organization if it did not do its job properly after having been intimidated.
Mr Vicha jokingly said that he could not reply the prime minister’s Facebook message in the social media because they were not Facebook friends yet.
He also dismissed the Pheu Thai party’s accusation that the NACC had deliberately dragged its feet on the probe against former prime minister Abhisit Vejjajiva over the rice price guarantee scheme which has been going on for about four years whereas it took the commission only 21 days on complete the probe against the prime minister on the rice pledging scheme.
He defended that the probe on the rice pledging scheme began in December 2012 and took more than a year to complete and not 21 days as suggested by the ruling party.
