The army on Sunday threatened to file a lawsuit against Pathum Thani red-shirt leader and radio host Wuthipong Kachathamkun, better known as Kotee, after he urged supporters to capture two army commanders.
The move comes after Kotee reportedly said in a red-shirt radio programme that he would mobilise followers to capture Maj Gen Wara Boonyasit, commander of the 1st Division, King's Guard, and Col Songwit Nunphakdi, commander of the 11th Infantry Regiment. The message was spread across social media.
