Chaikasem reprimands Justice permanent secretary for holding talk with Suthep

Caretaker Justice Minister Chaikasem Nitisiri Wednesday reprimanded Justice Ministry's Permanent Secretary Kittipong Kityarak for holding a talk with Suthep Thaugsuban in the ministry's compound on Tuesday.

Chaikasem said it was inappropriate for Kittipong to provide reception for Suthep in the ministry because Suthep is a suspect sought on sedition charge.

Instead of holding a talk with Suthep, Kittipong should have arrested the secretary general of the People's Democratic Reform Committee, Chaikasem said.

But the justice minister said he would not set up a panel to investigate Kittipong because he is a good official and he is about to complete his term as the permanent secretary.
