Two Political Parties, Two different Sets of Standards

It’s up setting to read that demonstrators two years ago are finally, finally going to hear charges brought against them while only three months ago the anti-government protesters are soon to hear the charges against them.
And the present government wants to understand why most of the nation’s populous is so upset.
The current ruling government in power:
PAD accused to hear charges
Leaders and supporters of the People’s Alliance for Democracy (PAD) will report to the Crime Suppression Division on Thursday to hear charges in connection with the blockade of Suvarnabhumi and Don Mueang airports in late 2008, PAD lawyer Nitithorn Lamlua said.
Mr Nitithorn on Wednesday went to the CSD headquarters to make the preparations.
Most of the suspects would would show up, except those who had already surrendered, to hear the charges, he said.
Mr Nitithorn said he and Suwat Apaipak would act as defence lawyers.  Some of the suspects might appoint their own lawyers.
Of the 79 suspects, four surrendered earlier — Rear Admiral Min Kolkikkamchorn (retired); Lakkhana Didyasarin, the treasurer of the New Politics Party; Suchart Srisang, a former MP for Maha Sarakham; and Pinij Sithiho, a former MP for Loei.
Recently arrested deomonstrators:
DSI told to present findings in 60 days
The Department of Special Investigation (DSI) has been instructed to present its findings in detail in 60 days on the autopsies of the 91 people who died during the violent protests of the United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship from March to May, Deputy Prime Minister Suthep Thaugsuban said on Wednesday.
Mr Suthep said the instruction was given at a meeting of the Centre for the Resolution of the Emergency Situation (CRES) after the DSI was criticised for being too slow to conclude its investigation.
The DSI is required to explain where, how and when each of the 91 was killed, by whom, and in what circumstances.
If the DSI did not have enough staff to finish the work in 60 days it could seek help from the police, Mr Suthep said.
The DSI called a press conference on Wednesday, only to say that it was not yet able to finalise its findings.
