No support to bail out detained Reds so far
Pheu Thai MPs have been slow in gathering signatures to help bail out the detained red-shirt supporters, MP Sangiam Samranrat said Thursday.
He explained that he had asked House Speaker Somsak Kiatsuranont and Pheu Thai MPs to put their names down on a petition to bail out red-shirt protesters detained in relation to the 2010 rally. The deadline was Wednesday, but Somsak has been silent about the signatures, he said.
The MP went on to say that he will submit a letter to Pheu Thai Party about the issue and will also get ready to stage a small rally outside Parliament calling for action.
Separately, 42 Pheu Thai MPs led by Worachai Haema submitted their version of the amnesty law to Somsak, who said he would verify the names and add the draft to the parliamentary agenda.
