EC calls for closure of hi-thaksin.netDecember 6th, 2007 - 11:34 pm ICT by admin
Bangkok, 06 December, 2007 (PRD), The Election Commission (EC) requests relevant units to close down www.hi-thaksin.net as its content is deemed inappropriate and may stir repercussions on national security.
Election Commissioner Sodsri Sattayathum (สดศรี สัตยธรรม) says EC has no mandate to close down the website and voices strong disagreement with the content which contains speeches of deposed Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra.
As for the People Power Party’s announcement that it will appoint Mr Thaksin as advisor if elected as the government, Mrs Sodsri says EC has already informed the party of the limitations of the disbanded 111 TRT executives. She affirms EC has the power to dissolve political parties even if the new government is formed.
