Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva insisted on Tuesday that there was no secret prison for torturing terrorists in Thailand as reported by the Washington Post newspaper.
Mr Abhisit said there was no cooperation between the Thai government and the US in setting up a secret prison as alleged.
“It’s an old story and it is totally groundless as this government has never resorted to the use of violent means,” Mr Abhisit said. The report would not affect the summit between Asean and its dialog partners being held in Phuket.
Mr Abhisit said he will meet US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at Government House about 5pm today.
