Pheu Thai asks DSI to charge ‘Suthep’ with treason


BANGKOK, 2 December 2013 Pheu Thai Party has asked the Department of Special Investigation (DSI) to file treason charge against Mr. Suthep Thaugsuban. 

Pheu Thai spokesperson Prompong Nopparit condemned the political protesters, who stormed into and seized government offices, as committing serious crime violating Section 113 of the criminal code.

Those in violation, stated Mr. Prompong, are subject to severe penalties. The Party is slated to send representative to the DSI today to officially file the petition against Mr. Suthep and his followers.

Government Chief Whip Amnuay Klangpa, former Public Health Minister Witthaya Buranasiri, and other Pheu Thai party members have discredited Mr. Suthep’s accusations of the party being involved with former premier Thaksin Shinawatra only as his excuse to topple the government.
