FTI opposes call for civil disobedience

- +

The Federation of Thai Industries (FTI) is urging people to ignore calls to stop work and not pay their taxes as part of anti-government protests. 

FTI chairman Payungsak Chartsuthipol said on Tuesday that the call for people to go on strike from Nov 13-15 as part of  a civil disobedience campaign would damage the economy and erode confidence in Thailand in the international community.

He also opposed the call for people to withhold their taxes because the FTI supports the fight against corruption and tax evasion is a form of corruption.
