Suthep: No policy to kill the innocent

The government has no policy to kill innocent people or supporters of the pro-Thaksin United front for Democracy against Dictatorship, Deputy Prime Minister for security affairs Suthep Thaugsuban said on Friday.

He said the government had nothing to do with the death of  Chakkarin Krongkaew, a close aide of UDD co-leader Suporn Atthawong, who was shot dead in Nakhon Ratchasima’s Buayai district on Thursday night.

Mr Suthep said he will order police to rapidly hunt down the gunmen.

Asked about the National Human Rights Commission’s remark that use of the emergency decree by the government was an abuse of human rights, Mr Suthep said the government was ready to answer to any investigation. It could show that the emergency  law was necessary and that  there was no abuse of human rights.

Responding to  criticism that only supporters of the government were invited to join in the five-point national reconciliation road map proposed by the prime minister, the deputy premier said it was just a starting point.

He said the government will make room for all parties to take part in the reconciliation plan.
