Not she, her accountant was the culprit, but the error had been corrected. They deplored the heavy words to have used the tax, but which served to protect her manager who was accused of embezzlement. The affair was discussed on web press with sneering remarks about the high fees paid artists gain. â € ~ hundred thousand baht for 1 or 2 hours work. And then they try to evade taxes or less to dragenâ € ™, someone wrote.

– Odd coincidence. Deputy Secretary of the Ministry of Defence Chatree Thatti was posted on Monday for punishment and a day later, his son (23) Pheemdet, who studied in Canada, in a traffic accident killed.

father, as Permanent Secretary Sathian Phoemthongin and Director General of the Secretariat Pinpas Sariwas Department on the grounds that he and the others had dared criticize the preferred candidate of the Minister of Defence for the succession of the Secretary.

– We have only a few warning shots fired with blank cartridges to deter protesters.

The paper draws this conclusion following the interrogation of Abhisit this week and then Vice Prime Minister Suthep Thaugsuban about their role in fighting the red shirt riots in April and May last year. â € ~ There can be no doubt that both can be helpful in investigating the violence, arson and killing. But many other people too. The political and street leaders of the red shirts in 2010 played a key â € “maybe a criminele.â € ™

The quarrel between Tarit and army commander Prayuth Chan-ocha is significant.
