BANGKOK, 15 October 2010 (NNT) – The Democrat Party has retorted Thaksin Shinawatra’s statement in connection with the release of Aung San Su Kyi, saying the comment is misleading.

In light of former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra’s statement, made after the release of Aung San Su Kyi by the Burmese junta, saying the release of political prisoners was a positive sign of the junta regime’s inclination to work towards reconciliation and true justice in the society, Democrat MP Attaporn Ponlaboot hit back at the former premier. The MP said if Thaksin really meant what he had said—agreeing with the fight for human rights and democracy in Burma– why then did he not ask the Burmese junta government to release Su Kyi when the former premier was in power?

Thaksin has now revealed his true colors by riding on Aung San Su Kyi’s coattails when, in fact, he is totally different from the Burmese fighter for democracy, Attaporn added.
