The Lawyers Council of Thailand (LCT) has lodged both civil and criminal lawsuits on behalf of about 12,000 rice farmers demanding the caretaker government pay them rice-pledging money totaling billions of baht. 

Affected farmers seeking help from the LCT were divided into three groups, its chairman, Dej-udom Krairit, said yesterday.

The first group are farmers from Phichit who pledged their rice under the government’s rice scheme between 2012 and 2013, he said.
