Rally at Indian embassy

A group of residents and Silom businessmen on Sunday held a brief rally in front of the Indian embassy in Soi Sukhumvit 23 to give moral support for Satish Sehgal who is facing deportation over the anti-government rallies.

The Centre for Maintaining Peace and Order (CMPO) has ordered the Immigration Police Bureau to deport Mr Satish, the Indian businessman and chairman of the Indian-Thai Business Association, for allegedly violating the emergency decree in joining the People's Democratic Reform Committee's anti-government protest.

The group planned to submit a letter to the Indian ambassador to Thailand, asking the embassy to protect the rights and liberty of Mr Satish, reasoning that the CMPO had overacted against him.

9 people can hardly be called a rally. They are probably mostly Indian descendants. Indians have their own country. They can go and protest there as much as they want !

This is fine, orderly and peaceful, but neither Indian Ambassador nor Indian Government can interfere with the rule of law of another sovereign nation, unless its citizen is persecuted in foreign land.

This act of deportation by the CMPO is nothing more than a disgraceful act of pure racism. Mr. Satish has been living in Thailand for over 50 years. I sincerely hope this story gets out to the World Media, as the World needs to know exactly what type of people make up this PTP Government and why the good citizens of Thailand want them gone.

overacted - learn to spell. It should be overreacted unless he is an actor
