Oh, so it’s not just me who thinks he’s corrupt
Quote from HRW:
"A human rights abuser of the worst kind" and "under any definition, I don't see how Thaksin can be fit and proper"
HRW doesn’t understand that all you need is money. In recent comments in my articles, I was accused of supporting a military coup and being all kinds of things which I found extremely laughable. And now you see why.
The Premier League has replied by defending the fit and proper person test. That means that human rights abusers are ok then.
The allegations against Thaksin are:
- Extrajudicial killings during a "war on drugs". HRW says 2,500 people were killed in three months during 2003
- Used the Thai military to suppress a south Thailand insurgency
- Suppressed the Thai media, that’s why you don’t know a lot about it
- Various conflict of interest with family members and business deals
See folks, the League are patsies, unwilling to stand up for anything proper. Just look at Ken Bates and Leeds, a joke beyond jokes. And unfortunately City fans, at least the ones in these comments, are blinded by loyalty to their club and accuse me of having a grudge. I don't, look here and here. Take the blinders off: the ‘fit and proper person’ test is not a real test.
