Democrats Gather Evidence on Pm’s Doctored Audio Clip

BANGKOK, Aug 30 (TNA) -- Thailand's ruling Democrat Party is gathering more evidence against those behind making and distributing a controversial audio clip of Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva ordering the use of violence to suppress anti-government protesters during the ASEAN summit and its aftermath in mid-April, a party spokesman said Sunday.

Spokesman Buranut Samutharak identified three groups he said could not deny responsibility in distributing the audio clip nationwide.

The first group, he said, were members of the anti-government United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship, the UDD Red Shirts. The 111 banned-from-politics former executives of the disbanded Thai Rak Thai Party including Pongthep Thepkarnchana, personal spokesman of ousted prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra, comprise the second group. The third group, said the Democrat spokesman, is the opposition Puea Thai Party which was responsible for displaying the clip via e-mail for the media.

Dr Buranut said legal specialists of the Democrat Party are reviewing laws which could be applied against those responsible for distributing the clip, and Prime Minister Abhisit will also defend himself personally, as he does not want to see the mudslinging practices typical of old-style Thai politics meant to create chaos in the country.

The Democrat Party earlier said that a company linked to ex premier Thaksin will be investigated regarding the distribution of the controversial clip, which forensic experts, electronics and sound specialists suggested on Friday was entirely comprised of doctored and edited bits and pieces put together by unknown persons.
