Prosecutors should hasten moves to indict almost 50 members of the defunct People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) for their actions during the group's political protest between 2013 and 2014, a lawyer says.
Winyat Chatmontri, secretary-general of the United Lawyers for Rights and Liberty, was speaking as he and his working team yesterday turned up at the Office of the Attorney-General (OAG), where they submitted a petition, asking the office to hasten indictments against the PDRC members.
Suthep Thaugsuban, former leader of the PDRC anti-government protest movement, is among 48 suspects facing multiple charges, including insurrection, in connection with their rally against the Yingluck Shinawatra government.
