Forty-two report to NCPO Monday

A total of 42 individuals have been ordered to report to the National Council for Peace and Order on Monday, bringing the total number of people who were summoned before the NCPO to almost 250.

The NCPO on Sunday issued four separate orders summoning 42 more prominent figures to report at the Royal Thai Army auditorium in Thewes area, Bangkok, between 10am and 2pm. 

The 42 included mainly Thaksin Shinawatra's former classmates in Class 10 at the Armed Forces Academies Preparatory School, core members of the Pheu Thai Party, businessmen who have close ties with former prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra, supporters of the People's Democratic Reform Committee and academics.

Among the academics were Chai-Anan Samudavanija, Thirayuth Boonmi and Surapol Nitikraipoj.

The junta’s latest order issued at 11pm Sunday summoned four individuals — ex-Democrat Party MP and key PDRC member Tankhun Jitt-itsra, a Class 10 graduate Gen Traisak Intarassamee, Pheu Thai executive committee member Wim Roongwattanajinda and director-general of the Government Lottery Office Attagrit Tharechat.

Mr Tankhun was summoned after he used his Twitter account to show opposition to the coup when the military seized power on last Thursday.
