Court asked to stop Seh Ai's rally

- +

Former senator Ruangkrai Leekijwattana on Monday filed a petition with the Constitution Court asking it to order Gen Boonlert Kaewprasit and Sqd Ldr Prasong Soonsiri to call off another rally planned for late this month. 

Gen Boonlert's Pitak Siam Group organised held the first rally at the Royal Turf Club at Nang Loeng on Oct 28 with the stated hope of toppling the government.

Mr Ruangkrai said the Oct 28 rally might be an act of rebellion under Article 113 of the Criminal Code which prohibits people from using force or threatening to use force to tear up the constitution, topple the legislative or judicial power, and seize the country's administrative power. It provides for charges of rebellion liable to death or life imprisonment.
