Sonthi denies influencing Tribunal

(BangkokPost.com) - Council for National Security chairman Sonthi Boonyaratkalin denied having lobbied the Constitution Tribunal to decide that Thai Rak Thai party is guilty of electoral fraud.

Gen Sonthi insisted that the CNS was not involved in the verdict - "not even a tiny bit."

His response came after local media reported that he had met with a tribunal judge, Ackaratorn Chularat, prior to the Tribunal ruling on Wednesday. Gen Sonthi did not explain that alleged meeting.

He added that he does not think the verdict will lead to violence, situation so he is not concerned about anti-junta rallies.

Gen Sonthi, however, accepted that Thai Rak Thai supporters believe the junta is the source of all problems, because it is determined to eradicate the administration under the Thaksin government. The transition from that to democracy is not easy, he said.
