The Foreign Ministry has revoked the passports of six Thais who resisted the military junta's summons and are believed to have taken shelter overseas, Foreign Ministry permanent secretary Sihasak Puangketkaew said on Monday.

The travel documents were cancelled on June 26.

The six are ex-Pheu Thai leader Charupong Ruangsuwan, Pheu Thai members Jakrapob Penkair and Sunai Jullapongsathorn, Chatwadee Amornpat, Ekkapob Luera and Attachai Anuntamek.

Arrest warrants for criminal charges have been issued against them. 

Jakrapob is believed to have taken shelter in Hong Kong, with whom Thailand does not have an extradition agreement. Discussions as to the next actions to be taken in Jakrapob’s case will thus be needed, he said.
