Army chief Prayuth Chan-ocha has warned the Pitak Siam group that its anti-government rally on Sunday must respect democratic principles and that protesters must not put pressure on the military. 

Gen Prayuth said Thursday he did not mind the rally taking place but its organisers should adhere to democratic ideals and not speak of the army in an unfavourable way.

"I would like to ask whether this government came from democratic means and if everyone wants democracy? If so, we should follow the [democratic] rules," he said.
