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.
In the letter to Mr Abhisit, ACM Sukumpol said he signed the order to strip Mr Abhisit of his rank as recommended by an investigation committee of the Defence Ministry.
ACM Sukumpol said he wanted to give Mr Abhisit another chance to clear himself. Mr Abhisit was advised to make an appointment to meet the committee in 10 days of receiving the letter to submit all related documents.
If the documents were certified correct by the committee, ACM Sukumpol would be glad to revoke the rank-stripping order, the letter said.
