Meticulous Thai Courts

From a recent Asia Times interview with former Thai Prime Minister Anand Panyarachun:

Haseenah Koyakutty: On the recent Supreme Court verdict that seized $1.4 billion worth of Thaksin’s assets on abuse of power charges: 

Anand Panyarachun: Why did the Attorney General take so long to file the charge and why did the court take so long to pass the judgment? Because they were very thorough. 700 pages and why did they decide to go into this 700 pages and read for seven-and-a-half hours? Because they wanted to make their reasoning very clear. 

If you study the judgment carefully, on the points of facts, they were all there. On the points of law, they were also correct. I think they did take the trouble and I have admiration for their patience because they were very much criticized about the slowness of the court decision.
