Abhisit has 10 days to clear himself

- +

Defence Minister Sukumpol Suwanatat has given Democrat Party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva 10 days to submit evidence to confirm he had not evaded military conscription and had followed all legal procedures to be registered and appointed an officer in the military service, a source said. 

The source said this was stated in an official letter, dated Nov 16, from ACM Sukumpol to Mr Abhisit who last week sent a letter to him asking for justice.

ACM Sukumpol earlier signed an order to remove Mr Abhisit's rank of sub-lieutenant and recall his salary and other benefits for using falsified documents to evade conscription and apply for a teaching job at the Chulachomklao Royal Military Academy.
