Welcome back Mr Thaksin

Re: "CAPO warning to court and NACC", Politics, April 18.

The self-acknowledged servant of Thaksin has now shifted into the driving seat for Pheu Thai. Through CAPO he has sent a warning of retribution to the courts when Yingluck is found guilty of anything.

The Constitutional Court is hearing a case in which the prime minister is accused of misconduct for removing National Security Council secretary-general Thawil Pliensri. Yesterday Chalerm cocked a snoot at that by promising the same treatment for Dr Narong, the permanent secretary for Public Health, for not supporting Pheu Thai.

CAPO was set up last November to enforce the Internal Security Act after the anti-government rally gained ground following the government-backed amnesty's passage through the House of Representatives. Does it have any legitimacy now?
