Justice minister warns people against joining Bangkok Shutdown protest

Caretaker Justice Minister Chaikasem Nitisiri Monday warned people against joining the Bangkok Shutdown protest on Monday, saying it is illegal and dangerous.

Chaikasem said Suthep Thaugsuban, secretary-general of the People's Democratic Reform Committee, was facing sedition charge, which carried the maximum penalty of death sentence.

As a result, if the people support Suthep by joining the Bangkok Shutdown protest, they would also be regarded as committing wrongdoing, Chaikasem said.

He said the protesters could also be injured from clashes with PDRC's opponents.
