Former education minister Chaturon Chaisaeng will be indicted in a military court for defying the National Council for Peace and Order's summons to report to the junta chiefs, NCPO spokesman Winthai Suwari said. 

Mr Chaturon was arrested on Tuesday afternoon after a press briefing at the Foreign Correspondents Club of Thailand (FCCT) in Bangkok.

Col Winthai said Mr Chaturon had defied the NCPO's order to report in, and statements he made earlier to the public had stirred up unrest, in violation of the NCPO's instructions.
