Pheu Thai mulls suing court judges

- +

The Pheu Thai Party and its coalition partners are considering launching lawsuits and impeachment proceedings against Constitution Court judges for their ruling on the charter amendment changing the makeup of the Senate, a member of Pheu Thai's strategic committee said on Thursday. 

Speaking in a press conference, Chusak Sirinin said the ruling party would discuss with coalition partners and senators, as damaged parties from the ruling, about preparations to prosecute five judges on the nine-member panel who ruled the amendment to make the Senate a fully elected chamber violates Section 68 of the constitution.

Section 68 prohibits attempts to overthrow the monarchy and unconstitutional efforts to seize power.
