Interpol not act on political arrest warrant : Thaksin

タイの有力英字紙The Nationの本日5月27日の記事
驚きました。
現政権からおとがめを受けるのではないかと心配しています。
新聞社の本分とは事実をわかりやすく市民に伝えることと行政への監視的役割だと思います。
事実(真実)を伝えようとする新聞社の気迫が伝わってきました。
私はこの記事の記述は真実だと思いますが、そうではないタクシンはテロリストだと批判する日本人が多く見受けられます。

Interpol not act on political arrest warrant : Thaksin
国際刑事警察機構タクシン元首相の逮捕要請を拒否

The Thai Criminal Court has issued an arrest warrant for Thaksin on terrorism charges for allegedly involving in the red protests in Bangkok that left 88 people dead.
"In my mind, I always advocate ... peaceful protest," he said. "Thailand needs reconciliation."
He described the burning of buildings blamed on his supporters as a "set up."
"The big fire ... must be the work of (a) professional," he said.
He said it was "definitely" not the work of a red shirt and "it must be well planned ahead."
"As an ex-police (officer), I can assure you that this is a well planned and professionally done" act of arson, he said.
Meanwhile he told New York Times he did not finance or organize the Red Shirt movement that had staged a two-month sit-in here.
"No, no, no," he said.
As evidence, he said that during the military crackdown last week when 15 people died, "I was in Paris ? they sent my picture ? shopping at Louis Vuitton with my daughter."
After that, as red shirt leaders were being rounded up and arrested in Thailand, he said, he went to the Cannes film festival.
"I am in contact with them, and they ask for advice sometimes," he said, describing his relationship with the protest leaders. Some of those leaders asserted that he was more directly involved.
The telephone interview was one of several media interviews organized by lawyers for Thaksin, who was speaking from an undisclosed location outside Thailand, on the same day they filed an appeal against the terrorism accusation; the charge carries a maximum sentence of death.
"I have been in Uganda, Moscow, Saudi and Lebanon," he said, naming just a few of the countries he has visited on what seems an endless world tour.
"During what is happening in Thailand, I'm traveling for my business in many countries," he said. "How can I become a terrorist?"

note:
国際刑事警察機構とは

Interpol, acronym for the International Criminal Police Organization, a worldwide clearinghouse for police information. Conceived in 1914, Interpol was formally established in 1923 with headquarters at Vienna. In 1938, it was effectively disbanded by Hitler's Anschluss of Austria. After World War II, the agency was reconstituted (1946) with headquarters in Paris. Its principal services are to provide its 188 member nations with information on the whereabouts of international criminals, to organize seminars on scientific crime detection, and to facilitate the apprehension of criminals. It does not apprehend criminals directly; Interpol has no officials who do policing or criminal investigative work. The organization claims to avoid those crimes that deal with political, military, religious, or racial matters. Interpol has been most successful with regard to counterfeiting, forgery, smuggling, and the narcotics trade.
