Case filed against PM, others

- +

A civic group on Monday submitted a petition asking the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) to take legal action against the prime minister, the cabinet and the police chief for improper enforcement of the Internal Security Act (ISA) to handle the Pitak Siam rally on Nov 24. 

The petition, filed by Bovorn Yasinthorn, chairman of the Group of Village Volunteers for the Protection of Three Institutions, said that use of the ISA must be in line with international practice to prevent infringement on the people's rights and liberties.
