Fundraising With No Accountability, Thai PDRC-Style

Last year, during the peak of former-PM Suthep Thaugsuban’s anti-Shinawatra rallies in Bangkok, his group collected a lot of money from his supporters and admirers, that included the ultra nationalists. Loads of baht. In fact, there’s no accountability of any sort, now that Thailand is under martial law and the junta rules the land of smiles.

Collect money, say a few words to the applauding folks and then one is expected to forget about the donations. Perhaps its an urban culture, or simply that frenzied moment during the rally, that one appears part of the trend to unconditionally offer Suthep and his baht-licking cronies money, along with that photo-selfie opportunity.

Oh well, so all in all, what happened to all that baht?
