Court ruling on PDRC protests sought

- +

The Centre for Maintaining Peace and Order (CMPO) is to ask the Constitution Court to rule on the legality of anti-government protests led by the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC). 

Department of Special Investigation (DSI) chief Tarit Pengdith said on Wednesday that CMPO director Chalerm Yubamrung had signed a petition to be submitted to the Constitution Court.

Although several other petitions on the issue have already been submitted to the charter court, the CMPO has now gathered additional evidence about legal offences committed by core members of the PDRC, he said, adding that the information proves protesters have caused considerable damage to the economy and society.
