Recommended Posts

UDD, PDRC leaders, two Pheu Thai leading members taken to 'safe house'




Leaders of the United Front of Democracy against Dictatorship and the People's Democratic Reform Committee have been taken to be detained at a safe house in Bangkok, a military source said.


They were taken from the First Infantry Regiment to a safe house after the coup makers released representatives of the ousted government and the Democrat, who attended the failed seven-partite meeting at the Army Club on Thursday.


The coup makers also released three Pheu Thai representatives but detained two - Pheu Thai secretary general Phutham Wechayachai and party spokesman Prompong Nopparit, and took them to the safe house along with the UDD and PDRC leaders.

Pheu Thai awaits Thaksin's orders




The Pheu Thai Party opted for quiet mode on Friday, waiting for directions from former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra, a party source said.

The source said key party figures had ordered all members to keep quiet and wait and see what the junta does.

Pheu Thai believed that not everybody welcomed the decision of army chief Gen Prayuth Chan-ocha to overthrow the caretaker government, the source said.

The party was awaiting signals to the party's leaders from Thaksin, the source said.


Thaksin's sister, former prime minister Yingluck, reported to the National Peace and Order Maintaining Council (NPOMC) on Friday and is banned from leaving the country.


The junta council released deputy party leader Pol Lt Gen Viroj Pao-in, Wan Mohamad Nor Matha and Chusak Sirinil from the barracks where they were being held.


They were still in Bangkok, according to the source.


Party secretary-general Phumtham Wechayachai and spokesman Prompong Nopparit remain in the army's custody.

The NPOMC released all detained negotiators of the Pheu Thai and Democrat parties in the early hours of Friday, according to the Post Today. They had been detained during talks with Gen Prayuth on Thursday afternoon, when the coup was declared.
