Yingluck Shinawatra has Finally been Released

The previous prime minister of Thailand, Yingluck Shinawatr, has been freed from jail as various sources reported recently. The coup in Thailand saw to that. Yingluck Shinawatra was allowed to leave an army prison. 

Shinawatra has been furthermore summoned to appear before the top military brass. Many others including among them politicos and agitators are being called as well. The army snatched power after many months of bloody infighting on the streets of Bangkok. 

Yingluck was co-opted by the military junta and a promise was taken from her that she would not cater to the rowdy elements of society for political gain. 

The junta source told CNN that the former prime minister was asked to "help us maintain peace and order and not to get involved with protesters or any political movement."

The military personnel are still hushed up about the whole deal due to the nature of the matter. They don’t want any trouble. And although Shinawatra has some degree of liberty, she has not been given total freedom at all. "I don't think she has freedom of mobility and communication," the source said.

One of those who have been summoned to appear is in opposition to Shinawatra. "Yellow Shirt" movement leader Sondhi Limthongkul is one of Yingluck's major opponents.

"We want to give them some time to relax and have time to think over the problem," the spokesman said. The council wants to "adjust their perception and make them think about the country, think about the Thai people as a whole, not just one particular group."

The purpose of gathering all these government leaders and activists under one roof is to allow dialogue to take place. The country needs stability and peace right now and all the representatives have to put their heads together and think of a way out of this conundrum they find themselves in. 

For once this Sunday, Bangkok was relatively calm after the storm. There were few protests or signs of unrest. It seems that once the people had gotten all that pent-up frustration due to state repression out of their systems, things settled down for good (at least for a while). 

However, the future looks to be still a little precarious. Fresh inceptions in mass activism are already beginning to rear their ugly heads. 

Meanwhile, martial law has been imposed on the country. And even foreign television channels have been banned. Besides all this the Senate has been liquidated. The future of the nation hangs in the balance.
