Although the Criminal Court has ordered the release of Sonthiyan Chuenruthainaitham on Feb 17, the Centre for Maintaining Peace and Order will try keep him in detention by laying a charge of insurrection against him under Section 113 of the Criminal Code, Department of Special Investigation (DSI) chief Tarit Pengdith said on Thursday. 

Mr Tarit, a member of  the CMPO, said Mr Sonthiyan is currently being detained on a charge of violating the emergency decree.

Although the court has ordered his release on Feb 17, Mr Sonthiyan is still wanted for insurrection under Section 113 of the Criminal Code.
