Repeating his claim of last week, Jatuporn said a memorandum on Thai-Cambodian ties, classified as secret and sent from Foreign Minister Kasit Piromya to Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva, was purportedly a plot to assassinate Thaksin.
“The term “get rid of” is a codeword for killing,” he said, claiming such a codeword is commonly understood by MFA officials.
At yesterday’s press conference, Jatuporn focused on the five-page annex to the main document which he touched on last week.
The annex outlined responses of varying intensity to the prime minister of Cambodia, he said. The 18 measures included a ban on Thai citizens visiting Cambodian casinos, cancellation of the extradition treaty, reinforcement of troops along the borders, and cancellation of the memorandum of understanding (MOU) on maritime boundaries.
He said the MFA analysis shed light on the dilemma of memorandums of understanding previously signed with Cambodia.
