Army hits out at Thaksin's lawyer

- +

The army on Friday hit back at Robert Amsterdam over a scathing article on his blog, labelling the red-shirt legal adviser "narrow-minded" and accusing him of seeking to discredit the military. 

Several Thai-language media outlets ran reports about the article penned by Mr Amsterdam, best known in Thailand as one of ousted premier Thaksin Shinawatra’s lawyers, on Thursday.

Entitled "Life Under a Coup — the Thai Army's Continual Threat to Thai Democracy", the article accuses the military of having a "long and ignoble tradition of stymieing democracy, attacking civilians and meddling in politics".
