PAD to hold major rally if....

The People's Alliance for Democracy will call a major rally immediately if there is a move to legislate a law to grant amnesty to fugitive former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra, PAD spokesman Panthep Puapongpan said on Wednesday.

Mr Panthep said another condition which would prompt the yellow-shirt PAD to stage a rally was any legislative move which could lead to the reduction of His Majesty the King's power or structural changes of the monarchical system.

The PAD also planned to file a lawsuit with the Office of the Attorney General on April 26 against 416 MPs, senators and members of the cabinet on charges of attempting to abolish the constitution.

This would be done under Section 68 of the constitution, he said.

Also on April 26, the PAD would file a petition with the National Anti-Corruption Commission against the 416 under Section 275 of the constitution.
