The National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) is pondering legal action against Robert Amsterdam, a legal adviser to former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra, for posting online about the establishment of a government in exile abroad following the coup, Col Winthai Suwari said on Sunday.
The army deputy spokesman said the NCPO will ask the Foreign Affairs Ministry to handle this matter as the suspected offence happened abroad with the aim of inciting unrest.
He said Mr Amsterdam had long committed legal offences in this matter but the authorities had not been able to bring him into the legal process.
