    Thailand drops case against five men with NKorean weapons

    BANGKOK: (AFP) -- Thailand said Thursday it had decided to drop a case against the five member crew of a plane carrying sanctions-busting weapons from North Korea.

    "The trial here will not benefit Thailand so we have decided to drop the charges," said Thanapich Mulapruk, spokesman for the Office of the Attorney General, in a statement.

    "Their countries of origin want to try the men in their home countries," he said.

    Another official from the attorney general's office said the Belarussian pilot and four Kazakh crew would not be formally extradited.

    "(We) are sending an official to file a petition with the court to release all five men," Kayasit Pissawanprkan told reporters. "This is not an extradition but we consider them as having entered (Thailand) illegally."

    No decision has been taken on what to do with the seized haul, which arrived on December 11 when the crew requested to land their Russian-made Ilyushin-76 plane at Thailand's domestic Don Mueang airport for refuelling.

    The men claimed they were carrying oil drilling equipment bound for Ukraine.

    The 35-tonne cargo, which included missiles and rocket-propelled grenades, is being held at an air force base north of Bangkok.

    "The plane landed to refuel. [highlight=yellow:70c64fb358]Those arms were not aimed at attacking Thailand so the trial does not benefit (us)[/highlight:70c64fb358]," added Thanapich.

    Police had charged the five men with possessing illegal weapons and ammunition, smuggling weapons and other banned products and failing to report the cache.

    Kazakhstan and Belarus both petitioned Thailand to ask for their nationals to be released for trial in their home countries.

    A flight plan obtained by investigators showed the plane was bound for Iran, while US intelligence chief Dennis Blair has said that it was headed for an unspecified Middle Eastern destination.

    The United Nations banned all North Korean arms exports in a tougher resolution passed in June following the North's latest missile and nuclear tests.

    The Bangkok case is believed to be the first airborne arms cargo from Pyongyang to have been seized since then.

    Thailand to deport crews of weapons cargo plane

    BANGKOK: -- Thai prosecutors decided to drop charges against the five crews of an aircraft alleged of smuggling weapons from North Korea.

    The crews will be deported [highlight=yellow:00c1f37ebd]to maintain good relations with their home countries.[/highlight:00c1f37ebd]

    The Attorney General's Office said the decision was made after the governments of Belarus and Kazakhstan contacted the Thai Foreign Ministry and requested the crew's release to face prosecution at their respective home country.

    BANGKOK: -- (AFP) Thailand on Thursday dropped a case against a plane crew who landed in the country carrying sanctions-busting weapons from North Korea, saying it was not in the national interest to prosecute.

    Officials said the Belarussian pilot and Kazakh crew would be deported to face trial in their home countries.
    "The trial here will not benefit Thailand so we have decided to drop the charges," said Thanapich Mulapruk, spokesman for the attorney general's office, in a statement.

    "Their countries of origin want to try the men in their home countries."

    Another official from the attorney general's office said the five men would not be formally extradited.

    "This is not an extradition but we consider them as having entered (Thailand) illegally," Kayasit Pissawanprkan told reporters.

    Prison authorities said they were awaiting a court order to hand the men over to police for fingerprinting before they are in turn handed to immigration officials for deportation.

    No decision has been taken on what to do with the seized haul, which arrived on December 11, when the crew requested to land their Ilyushin-76 plane at Thailand's domestic Don Mueang airport for refuelling.

    The men claimed they were carrying oil drilling equipment bound for Ukraine.

    The 35-tonne cargo, which included missiles and rocket-propelled grenades, is being held at an air force base north of Bangkok.

    Thai authorities intercepted the haul following a tip-off from US authorities.

    A spokeswoman for the US Embassy in Bangkok said she could not immediately comment on the release.

    Thanapich added: "The plane landed to refuel. Those arms were not aimed at attacking Thailand so the trial does not benefit (us)."

    Police had charged the five with possessing illegal weapons and ammunition, smuggling weapons and other banned products and failing to report the cache.
    Kazakhstan and Belarus both petitioned Thailand to ask for their nationals to be released for trial in their home countries.
    A flight plan obtained by investigators showed the plane was bound for Iran, while US intelligence chief Dennis Blair has said that it was headed for an unspecified Middle Eastern destination.

    Analyst Thitinan Pongsudhirak, director of the Institute of Security and International Studies at Bangkok's Chulalongkorn university, said [highlight=yellow:00c1f37ebd]the decision to release the men was a blow to the United States.[/highlight:00c1f37ebd]

    "It will be received as another point against Thailand in the American scheme of things," said Thitinan, adding that Thailand did not want to gain enemies by proceeding with the case.

    "I think the conclusion here was that the North Koreans have sparred with the Americans and there's a UN resolution on this, but why should Thailand be dragged into it?" he said.

    The United Nations banned all North Korean arms exports in a tougher resolution passed in June following the North's latest missile and nuclear tests.
    The Bangkok case is believed to be the first airborne arms cargo from Pyongyang to have been seized since then.

    The five men had been held at the same jail as Russian alleged arms dealer Viktor Bout, dubbed the "Merchant of Death".

    He was arrested in Bangkok in March 2008 while allegedly agreeing to supply missiles to Colombian rebels. The Thai government is perceived to have worked closely with Washington on that case and is appealing a court decision rejecting a US request for his extradition.
    Das Land wird immer mehr zur Drehscheibe fuer Geheimdienstgeplaenkel zwischen der USA, Russland und andere, - und Thailand will sich raushalten,

    nicht mehr eine Linie mit der USA.

    Der Druck aus Bush Zeiten, in Thailand CIA Foltergefaengnisse zu betreiben,
    wirkt noch Jahre nach.
    Die Thais werden es nie vergessen, wie damals der Satz beendet wurde, wenn ihr Euch gegen unsere Unterstuetzung entscheidet, dann [highlight=yellow:00c1f37ebd]...[/highlight:00c1f37ebd]

    nicht mit Thailand

    Aktionismus oder Aufklärung?

    RIA Novosti - Am Mittwoch hat ein Gericht in Bangkok damit begonnen die Umstände der Auslieferung von Viktor Bout an die Vereinigten Staaten zu untersuchen. Der mutmaßliche russische Waffenhändler wird im Oktober vor Gericht stehen, aber es ist unwahrscheinlich, dass das amerikanische Gericht Details seiner Übergabe hinterfragt. In Thailand wird der Fall offensichtlich genutzt, um den ehemaligen Ministerpräsidenten, der an dem Auslieferungsersuchen beteiligt war, anzugreifen.

    Vejjajiva und einige seiner Minister gaben die Beteiligung an der Auslieferung zu während andere eine Beteiligung leugneten. Aber wer hat die endgültige Entscheidung getroffen, um den Amerikanern Bout zu übergeben - vor allem wenn dabei thailändische Gesetze gebrochen wurden.
