Prosecutors are set to call in leaders of the now defunct anti-Yingluck-government group, People’s Democratic Reform Committee to decide whether they would be indicted for sedition.

 

The up to 54 political activists including group leader Suthep Thaugsuban, have been charged by the Department of Special Investigation following their role in the 2014 demonstrations against former PM Yingluck Shinawatra and her government.

 

Sawad Charoenpol, the group’s lawyer, said the accused are ready to meet the prosecutors as appointed, but whether all of them will show up or not he cannot confirm at this point.
