The Pheu Thai Party will file a complaint with the Department of Special Investigation (DSI) against anti-government leader Suthep Thaugsuban for treason today, party spokesman Prompong Nopparit said yesterday at a press conference. 

The announcement followed the People’s Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) leader’s declaration at the Lumpini Park rally site on Saturday that the people would regain sovereign power and he would seek endorsement from His Majesty for a new prime minister as soon as the National Anti-Corruption Commission or Constitutional Court rules that caretaker premier Yingluck Shinawatra and the caretaker government must step down.

Mr Prompong said Mr Suthep’s remark violated Section 113 of the Criminal Code in connection with insurrection.
