Runaway Jarupong declares free-Thai organisation to counter coup

Fugitive ex-Pheu Thai party leader Jarupong Ruangsuwan on Tuesday declared establishment of a free-Thai organisation to fight against coup makers.

He said in a YouTube clip that "The Organisation of Free Thais for Human Rights and Democracy" or FT-HD is founded to show rejection of the military junta and consequences. He was appointed as its secretary general.

The establishment was done in the morning of June 24, the same day in 1932 when Thailand was changed from absolute monarchy to democracy and constitutional monarchy.
