Calls for CCTV footage to verify Thaksin Shinawatra’s health claims

Political activist Jatuporn Prompan referred to as on the Department of Corrections (DoC) and the Police General Hospital to disclose CCTV footage to handle public concerns surrounding the well being condition of former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra.
Jatuporn, who has been imprisoned 5 instances, pointed out that every one inmates’ actions, together with their medical treatments and transfers, are documented through CCTV. He stated on the Thailand First programme on Peace TV that the footage might reveal whether or not Thaksin’s sickness is genuine or politically motivated.
“There are suspicions over whether Thaksin is politically ill or really sick. Upon his return to Thailand at Don Mueang International Airport, key members of the Pheu Thai Party asserted that he was in healthy condition. However, he suddenly fell sick after being taken to prison.”

The DoC announced that Thaksin suffers from four important sicknesses – heart disease, lung disease, hypertension, and a herniated disc. Jatuporn, the fifty seven year old former leader of the pro-Thaksin United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD), or the purple shirts, applauded the jail hospital for its swift prognosis of these four illnesses with solely a stethoscope, reported Bangkok Post.
No problem was incarcerated on Tuesday after over 15 years of self-exile, following a court appearance on the identical day. He was moved from Bangkok Remand Prison to the Police General Hospital at 12.20am on Wednesday as a result of signs of chest pain, hypertension, and low blood oxygen, as reported by the DoC.
The hospital’s chief physician, Police Lieutenant General Doctor Sophonrat Singhajaru, introduced yesterday that whereas Thaksin’s situation has improved, he stays drained because of a lung situation caused by two bouts of Covid-19 and remains to be on oxygen. The hospital intends to allow Thaksin’s family members to go to him for the first time on Monday.
Jatuporn, however, is sceptical about Thaksin’s important well being condition and calls for video footage as verification.
“If he’s genuinely critically sick, nobody will object to any particular remedy for him. If not, this will turn into a brand new concern. There shall be intense public scrutiny. Those concerned will confront increasing pressure from society and could end up in jail.”
