BANGKOK, 23 January 2012 (NNT) – The Democrat Party is challenging Mrs. Nalinee Taveensin, the new Minister to the Prime Minister’s Office, to publicly condemn the U.S. for blacklisting her in order to prove the matter as inaccurate.
According to the report, Mrs. Nalinee has been on the U.S blacklist for her business affiliations with Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe and his family. The U.S. has sanctioned against the African country for human right violations as well as those who support it, which include the newly-appointed minister of Thailand.
Democrat Party Spokesperson Mr. Chavanond Intarakomalyasut raised his suspicion as to why Mrs. Nalinee did not defend herself against the U.S. when she had the chance four years ago, given how well-known she was among international businesspeople.
The Spokesperson further added that her recent public announcement regarding the U.S. blacklist was only a setup to distort the truth and mislead the public. He said he wished that she would be the last disreputable person the government would appoint to its administration.
