Phra Buddha Isara said Monday that he has stayed inside a military camp for five days after troops took him from the Chaeng Watana rally site where he led a protest against the ousted government.
“I’ve been living at a military cap for five days. Cool! I am fine,” the monk told reporters after he was taken by troops to the Office of the Attorney General to acknowledge sedition charges.
The monk said he asked permission from public prosecutors to come back to acknowledge the charge on Wednesday.]
The monk also expressed support for the National Council for Peace and Order’s approval of budget to pay for farmers for their rice sold to the government under the rice-pledging scheme.
