Caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra on Wednesday asked police to take legal action against those involved in the distribution of electronic clips deemed insulting the monarchy.

The premier’s secretary general Suranand Vejjajiva said the premier had instructed him to send a complaint to the national police chief, seeking legal action against those who distributed the clips.

Suranand said the premier mentioned the case of Wutthipong Kochathammakun, also known as Ko Tee, whose interview with a member of the foreign press has been slammed for insulting the monarchy.
