Paradox lies at the heart of Thai quest for justice
Red-shirt 'terror', Army 'sniper' cases illustrate the Kingdom's dilemmaOn the surface, it seems fair. One "state" agency, the Attorney General's Office, is pursuing "terrorism" cases against some red shirt members, while one "government" agency, the Department of Special Investigation, is going after those "responsible" for shooting the red shirts.
Fairness, however, may exist only on paper. Pessimists see no way forward that Thailand can go from here. How can two agencies, which are under government influence one way or another, handle cases that underline the country's political divide? In other words, how can we expect justice from this kind of situation?
