Pressure on charter judges continues

- +

Members of the "group of people's radio media for democracy" rallied in front of the Constitution Court for the eighth day on Monday, demanding that the nine judges resign en masse. 

Pongpisit Kongsena, alias Lek Bandon, the group leader, said the rally would continue until the judges bow to their demand.

He said the protest is not violent, but argued that the judges should uphold the principles of ethics and morality by resigning. He claimed they lacked the legitimacy to continue to serve on the charter court bench because they were appointed by the Council for National Security following the Sept 19, 2006 coup.
