"Using all forms of violence..."

MICT
An audio clip, in which PM Abhisit appears to call for the suppression of the red-shirt demonstrators "using all forms of violence", has been blocked by the Ministry of Information, Communication, and Technology, and Thai sites which previously streamed the clip (including matichon.co.th and thaiinsider.info) have now deleted it.

The general consensus is that the tape has been heavily edited to misrepresent Abhisit, using extracts from his 19th and 26th April Confidence In Thailand TV programmes (similar to the two Bushwhacked clips of George W Bush by Chris Morris).

According to the Democrats, the clip was originally distributed via email by an employee of SC Asset (a company owned by Thaksin's younger sister). It was apparently sent to Pheu Thai (the political party Thaksin controls) on 26th August. It has since been broadcast by ASTV and D-Station.
