Lawyers ask court to end protests, dissolve Democrat Party

- +

The Lawyers Association has petitioned the Constitution Court to order the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) to end its anti-government rallies and to consider dissolving the opposition Democrat Party. 

At the Office of the Constitution Court on Friday, association president Narinpong Jinapak said he had submitted a petition asking the court to consider whether the actions of PDRC secretary general Suthep Thaugsuban, Democrat leader Abhisit Vejjajiva and the Democrat Party were unconstitutional efforts to seize power.
