Thai Criminal Court refuses to issue warrants against anti-Thaksin leaders
Last Updated(Beijing Time):2006-09-02 16:07
The Criminal Court of Thailand Friday turned down police's request to issue warrants against seven leading members of the People's Alliance for Democracy (PAD) on charges for stirring up trouble in the country.

The court turned down the request of Police Maj. Gen. Chatchawal Suksomjit, deputy commissioners of the Metropolitan Police Bureau, for the courts to issue warrants against PAD coordinator Suriyasai Katasila and six other PAD leaders.

As the core members of the anti-Thaksin group during the past political turmoil in Thailand, all the six were charged for allegedly conspiring to overthrow the government and break the law under Article 116 of the Criminal Code.

But the court reasoned that Chatchawal did not have evidences to prove that Suriyasai and the six PAD leaders had committed wrongdoing.

However, the court stated that police could summon the seven for questioning.
