Re: "Political law blasted for bias, ambiguity", (BP, July 15).

The National Legislative Assembly passed a draft organic law on criminal procedures for holders of political positions to allow trials in absentia.

Critics point out that since the defendant will not be present in such a trial, he cannot defend himself and the law is thus unjust. They also charge this law is directed against a single person, that is Thaksin, now in self-exile.
