    Re: aktuelle Situation in Thailand

    Fuer die, die nur noch in den reinen Inofthread schauen, diese Info, selbstverstaendlich unkommentiert und/oder unmarked:

    As troops continued their crackdown on protesters, Amnesty International criticized the government´s approach.
    Benjamin Zawacki, the organization´s Thailand specialist, told CNN that 35 of the people killed since Thursday were unarmed, including a 17-year-old boy and two medics.

    "Our concern is that the government is using live ammunition or live rounds preemptively, rather than as a last resort, and using them against persons who are unarmed and present no credible threat to the soldiers or anyone else," he said.

    But government officials maintained that they were following rules of engagement. Troops only use live bullets when first attacked by terrorists with war weapons, Col. Sansern Kaewkamnerd told reporters.

    So sieht inzwischen wohl die Nahrungsversorgung im Sperrgebiet aus. Irgendwoher organisiert. Oder von den Anwohnern eingekauft.

    Re: aktuelle Situation in Thailand

    Warum die thailändischen Zeitungen ihre Zählweise verändert haben, weiß ich nicht. Aber heute vermeldeten sie eine Zahl mit größerer moralischer Implikation:


    "Death toll in protests rise to 68
    Sixty-eight people have been killed in clashes between soldiers and red-shirt protesters since April 10, with 37 of them having been killed in the latest sparring near the Rajprasong rally site, Erawan Emergency Medical Centre's director, Phetpong Kamjornkitjakarn, said yesterday.

    He added that 296 people have been injured from last Friday until yesterday, with 14 of them in intensive care units. One of the foreigners injured and unidentified thus far is said to be a reporter from overseas. He is being treated at Bumrungrad Hospital.

    Meanwhile, help is needed for the family of a Poh Teck Tung Foundation volunteer who was shot dead while rescuing a victim near Soi Ngam Duphli on Saturday. Mana Saenprasert's family said the 21-year-old was the sole breadwinner and that they had not been offered any financial help by any agencies. The family lives in Bon Kai.

    Mana's elder sister Kanravee, 32, said her brother worked as a taxi driver, while her other two brothers were unemployed. Moreover, Mana had borrowed Bt200,000 to purchase his taxi and needed to pay more than Bt1,000 a day to the loanshark. Since none of the agencies have offered the family any assistance, Kanravee hoped other people would step in.

    A friend recounted that Mana had gone out to buy some food, and stopped to help the injured man, before he was killed. This was his last rescue mission, the friend lamented. Mana used to also volunteer as a firefighter.

    Meanwhile, the wife of a Vajira Hospital rescue worker, Boonthing Parnsila, 25, who was shot dead last Friday night, called on the authorities to bring the murderer to justice.

    Boonthing was helping injured people in Soi Rangnam when he was shot dead.

    "I want the law to be enforced strictly. Police should investigate this case and punish the killer. I don't want agencies to just offer help and not punish the murderer to justice. Money cannot compensate for the loss of his life," Wara.... Ketkaew, 24, said. She and Boonthing have a nine-month-old boy.

    "I'm very proud of my husband and I intend to instil his mindset in my son so he can serve the country," Wara.... said. She added that Boonthing often helped guard Wat Devaraj Kunchorn and was loved by his neighbours because he helped everybody.

    To help, call Kanravee at (089) 136 0834 and Wara.... at (087) 322 3514.

    Meanwhile, the bodies of two red-shirt protesters, Wongsakorn Plangsri, 40 and Suphan Thoomthong, 49, were brought home to Si Sa Ket province yesterday. They were both killed in the clashes on Monday, and will be cremated this weekend.

    In a related report, the Ramathibodi Hospital is seeking urgent platelet donations. Donors can call (02) 201 1219 and (02) 201 1229. People who believe they might have lost relatives in the clashes can also go to Ramathibodhi Hospital to identify bodies."

    Peace hopes fading

    Angry reds boo off leaders'attempts to talk peace; govt: Protesters must leave Rajprasong before any talks; Thaksin allegedly makes demands which govt saysit cannot accept

    Angry red-shirt protesters booed off their leaders' attempts to enter an immediate peace process with the government yesterday, presenting another major stumbling block to attempts to end the bloody violence plaguing Bangkok.

    Before the major twist in the evening, former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra was decried by the government as the main mastermind of the violence and the key obstacle to peace. The government also rejected calls for a mutual cease-fire, saying the red shirts must leave the Rajprasong intersection first before any peace talks can begin.

    But a group of five senators, led by Senator Lertrat Ratanavanich, visited the Rajprasong stage early in the evening and managed to convince the leaders to agree to a unilateral cease-fire to immediately kick-start the peace process. When Lertrat announced the agreement to protesters, they greeted him with boos and threw articles.

    Red leaders took turns to try to pacify the crowd, who still sounded very upset as they spoke. The leaders said dozens of times that their intention to "save lives" should not be interpreted as a "secret deal" with the government. "Even dogs can't do that [striking a secret deal with the government]," said Natthawut Saikua.

    After spending two months portraying the Abhisit government as the worst tyrant, the leaders found out that the crowd had taken it all seriously, with emotions fuelled by the heavy casualties inflicted on the movement after four days of violence. Last night, therefore, was a make-or-break moment which would reveal if the leaders could still control the crowd or it has become an independent, unpredictable force of its own.

    The defiant crowd presented another snag after Thaksin allegedly made demands that could not be met by the government. According to a government source, Thaksin, through his representatives, appeared uninterested in an early end to the red shirts' protests and riots as long as he did not get what he wanted.

    "As long as Thaksin does not get what he wants, he won't let this end so easily," said the source. "His latest condition is that he wants not only amnesty in the different cases against him, but also have his passports returned. Those conditions cannot be met by the government."

    Violence continued but with decreased intensity in Bangkok, with Bon Kai and Rajprarop remaining the most sensitive areas, where sporadic gunshots and explosions were still heard. The fatality toll since last Friday was 37, excluding Maj-General Khattiya Sawasdipol. Nearly 300 people are injured.

    Thaksin's influence in the ongoing secret talks between the government and the red shirts was confirmed by another source from the opposition Pheu Thai Party.

    The source, who is close to the ex-premier, said that certain Pheu Thai leaders and Thaksin's close relatives were also involved in the secret talks. In addition to other conditions, such as the date for a new election, Thaksin also made his personal demands.

    "Up till now, there have been no positive responses to the demands. These include a return of part of assets from the asset-seizure case and a return of Thaksin's passports," said the Pheu Thai source.

    The source also said that Thaksin has a "trump card" in hand that he would use if the talks fail.

    "The real strategists [Thaksin's allies from the military] will play an underground game by staging sabotage acts in different areas throughout the city and other major provinces in order to pressure the government to accept Thaksin's conditions," the source said.

    Meanwhile, the Cabinet yesterday declared the three remaining work days of the week as public holidays in Bangkok to facilitate the operations to restore peace in the city.

    During yesterday's Cabinet meeting at the 11th Infantry Regiment, the head strategist of the operation, deputy Army chief of staff Lt-General Dawpong Rattanasuban, explained to the ministers about the military-led operation. He was assigned by Deputy Prime Minister Suthep Thaugsuban, who heads the Centre for the Resolution of the Emergency Situation.

    The general said Army snipers were responsible for some deaths during the mayhem but those killed were carrying weapons, a government source quoted him as saying. "When the bodies or the injured people were taken away [from the scene], the weapons lying beside them were left behind," he was quoted by the source as telling the Cabinet.

    Dawpong also said that many of the deaths were caused by heavily armed men siding with the red shirts. "More than a hundred grenades were fired from M79 launchers," he said, adding that deaths of "innocent people" were often wrongly blamed on the military.

    In a related development, Pheu Thai MPs plan to submit a petition to Senate Speaker Prasopsuk Boondej this morning seeking impeachment of Suthep and Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva for ordering the military operations on the red shirts.

    MP Surapong Towichakchaikul said the party resolved that all of its MPs sign the petition. Any MP who fails to take part would not be fielded in the next election as they would be suspected of possible defection.

    Also yesterday, Thammasat University's law lecturer Parinya Thewanarumitkul released an open letter reminding the prime minister and red-shirt leader Jatu.... Promphan that they were fellow protesters 18 years ago when there were street demonstrations against a coup leader becoming prime minister. The protests led to a deadly military crackdown.
