Defence Minister Sukumpol Suwanatat has asked Jakarta to extradite southern insurgents in the event that they escape and take refuge in Indonesia. 

ACM Sukumpol said he made his request in a meeting with his Indonesian counterpart while attending the Asean Defence Ministers Meeting in Brunei from Monday to Wednesday.

He told Indonesia's Defence Minister Purnomo Yusgiantoro that if Thailand knows insurgents from the deep South are hiding in Indonesia, it will inform Indonesian authorities of their names and seek their extradition.
