Military don't follow political leadership...Angkhana insists
Angkhana Neelapaijit, whose husband has "disappeared" mysteriously for years while defending southern activists as a lawyer, says the bomb-detecting GT200 incident shows that the military hasn't followed the "politics-leads-military" policy.
She tells Thai Post in an inteview published today: "After the test results are known, the government tells the military to stop using GT200s but the army hasn't stopped. My question is: Does politics really lead the military in solving the southern problems?
Angkhana says the military has all along stated that their strategy is to follow the government's political lead. "That's what they have been telling the people. But what happens today show that soldiers still refuse to follow political policy."
