The ruling Democrat Party has urged Foreign Minister Kasit Piromya to revoke the passport of red-shirt leader Jakrapob Penkair to prevent him from using any foreign country as a launch pad against the government.
Party spokesman Buranat Samutharak said it would consult with Kasit when he returned from the United States.
Fugitive Jakrapob, whose whereabouts are unknown, has said via international media that the red-shirts may very well turn from peaceful struggle to insurgency.
Jakrapob, a former minister at the Prime Minister’s Office, is charged with lese majeste and has been missing since the Songkran Day rioting.
