Former education minister Chaturon Chaisaeng was yesterday detained for 12 days after being brought before a military court to face charges for defying the coup-makers' orders.
Mr Chaturon failed to report to the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) after the military seized power last Thursday. He was arrested on Tuesday at the Foreign Correspondents' Club of Thailand in Bangkok, after giving a press briefing to reporters.
He was detained by the military overnight and taken to the Crime Suppression Division for questioning. Yesterday evening, he was taken before a military court for ignoring an NCPO order for him to report to the council.
