The government has vowed to seek the extradition of hardcore red-shirt leader Wuthipong Kochathamakun, alias Kotee, from Laos following the discovery of a huge cache of weapons by authorities in a house in Pathum Thani.
The authorities insist the weapons seizure was not a "set up" to link the house with Wat Dhammakaya temple, which police claim was planning to use the weapons to attack authorities and assasinate both Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha and Deputy Prime Minister Prawit Wongsuwon.
The war weapons were found in the house by security officers in an operation on Saturday morning.
