The lawyer of Pheu Thai Party key figure Chaturon Chaisang on Tuesday petitioned Prime Minister General Prayut Chan-o-cha via the public services centre, asking him to lift the ban on his client’s financial business.



The order banning such activity has been effect for three years and Chaturon cannot even apply for life insurance, Chamnong Chaimongkol said.

The lawyer said the PM could help by forwarding the order to the Cabinet for it to waive the ban if he deemed it to be an administrative order, or to the National Legislative Assembly to proceed with a wavier if he considered it to be law.

The order, Chamnong argued, contradicted the rule of law and violated human rights.
