PAD to Seek Repeal of Terrorism Charges


The People’s Alliance for Democracy vows to file complaint with the Administrative Court against the Prime Minister if investigators responsible for the airport protest cases refuse to repeal terrorism charges against the group.

Core leaders of the People’s Alliance for Democracy, or PAD, will meet investigators at the Police Club on Vibhavadi Rangsit Road tomorrow following the summons over their leading role in last year’s forced closure of Don Muang and Suvarnabhumi airports.

The group’s lawyer Suwat Apaipak said core leader of the Democratic Alliance Against Dictatorship, Weng Tojirakan, who filed a complaint with police to press terrorism charges against the PAD, is not an eligible plaintiff and the case is a false allegation.


Suwat cited Article 135/1 of the Criminal Code as stipulating that a constitutional demonstration or rally against the government calling for its assistance or justice is not considered a terrorist act, so the case against the PAD has no merit.

The PAD lawyer also revealed if investigators refused to repeal the terrorism charges, he will file a complaint with the Administrative Court against Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva and national police chief Police General Patcharawat Wongsuwan in return.
