Letting 'Oak' off needs explainingPanthongtae "Oak" Shinawatra, the only son of fugitive former prime minister Thaksin, should count himself as one of the lucky few in this country to be granted special treatment from the Office of the Attorney-General. Therefore, it could not be concluded the defendant [Mr Panthongtae] conspired with Mr Wichai to commit money laundering." One court judge ruled Mr Panthongtae not guilty as charged while the other found him guilty and handed down a four-year jail term. The Office of Higher Court Cases concurred with the recommendation of the public prosecutors that the case should not be appealed to the higher court. Why just stop dead half way and lose the spirit to fight on to seek justice from the higher court?
