The Constitutional Court is not working for the people because it was installed by the Council for National Security (CNS), Pheu Thai Party leader and caretaker Interior Minister Charupong Ruangsuwan said on Sunday.
The Pheu Thai leader made the comment after the court on Friday issued a statement denying accusations by the government's Centre for the Administration of Peace and Order (Capo) that the court would "rule beyond the constitution" to disqualify caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra who is accused of breaching the charter in her transfer of National Security Council (NSC) secretary-general Thawil Pliensri in 2011. The court accused Capo of speculating on the future and of making veiled threats, adding that the security agency was acting far beyond the scope of its authority.
