FORMER PRIME minister Chuan Leekpai has extended moral support to the Constitutional Court judges, calling on them to carry out their duty with righteousness and without fear of intimidation or being wavered by bribery at this critical political juncture.
He was speaking at a seminar titled “Political reform under the rule of law” to mark the Constitutional Court’s 16th anniversary.
“The present situation is not normal,” he said. “Stay true to your cause. Each situation is a test of your ideology and commitment.”
The Constitutional Court is about to issue a landmark verdict to decide the fate of caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra for the charter violation over the unlawful removal of National Security Council chief Thawil Pliensri.
