Thailand - Poll: Thaksin should accept the verdict

[bangkok post] Nearly 57 per cent of the people polled by Abac poll said former prime minister Thaksin shinawatra should accept the Supreme Court’s ruling to seize his 46 billion baht in assets.

They said the ex-premier should accept it because the court had justly made the verdict. Thaksin should also accept if in order to help restore peace and order in the country.

However, 32.6 per cent of the respondents disagreed with the court’s ruling, saying Thaksin should continue fighting for justice.

In addition, 81.5 per cent of them said Thaksin should use his remaining 30 billion baht money for the development of the country’s education system.

Meanwhile, 75.1 per cent wanted the ousted premier to give away the remaining wealth to poor people.

As many as 69.3 per cent of the respondents believed the court’s verdict would help curb politicians from using state authority for self-interest.
