Former Thai PM Thaksin says martial law must not 'destroy' democracy
(05-20 13:26)

Thailand's ousted prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra, a hugely controversial figure at the heart of the kingdom's bitter political divide, said Tuesday that the imposition of martial law must not ''destroy'' democracy.
"The declaration of martial law is expected.... however I hope no party will violate human rights and further destroy democracy,'' the billionaire tycoon-turned-politician, who was ousted in a coup in 2006, said on Twitter. --AFP
