CDC to seek help from NCPO to deal with “thugs” for obstructing draft charter clarification

The Constitution Drafting Committee will consult with the National Council for Peace and Order, the Election Commission and security agencies on how to deal with intimidation against officials tasked with clarifying the content of the draft constitution to the public.

Apparently outraged by a complaint lodged by the CDC spokesman Mr Chartchai na Chiangmai that he was intimidated by some elements while he was doing his job to explain the draft charter, CDC chairman Meechai Ruchupan said he didn’t understand why his men had to be intimidated for doing a good job.

He accused the “thugs” who resorted to intimidation for having no regard for the country.

Mr Meechai said that he would raise the intimidation problem to the attention of Prime Minister Prayut Chan-ocha and security agencies in order that measures should be meted out to ensure smooth working condition for those responsible for clarifying the content of the draft charter.

He said he hopes the silent majority should rise up to help weed out these thuggish elements.
