Thai Justice

Thai Court Orders Dissolution of Ruling Party

Thailand is in a state of political turmoil after the nation"s constitutional court ordered the dissolution of the ruling People Power Party for electoral fraud. The court also ruled that the current Prime Minister—Somchai Wongsawat—and 36 other party members be banned from politics for five years. Minutes after the ruling, the PPP said members would regroup under a new name and propose a new prime minister. The court's decision comes after weeks of anti-government protests including a blockade of Thailand's two main airports.

Now that's justice.

Psssst... Do Something
