Lawyers' association calls on court to order protesters to stop

The chairman of the Thai Layers Association yesterday called on the Constitutional Court to order that the People's Democratic Reform Committee stop its protests.

In a petition submitted to the court, Narinpong Jinaphak also asked it to dissolve the Democrat Party and ban its executives from politics.

Narinpong alleged that the PDRC led by former Democrat MP Suthep Thaugsuban was violating Article 68 of the Constitution by seeking ruling power through unconstitutional means.

The Law Society of Thailand has clarified that the association has nothing to do with the Law Society of Thailand, which is a professional body overseeing lawyers’ ethics.
