A 500,000 baht reward has been offered to any police who manage to arrest Wutthipong Kotthammakhun, alias Ko Tee, wanted on lese majeste charges within seven days.
The bounty was offered by Phra Buddha Isara, a leader of the People’s Democratic Reform Committee. He said the bounty offer was intended to give an incentive to the police to arrest the suspect.
The monk today (Friday) filed a complaint with Khu Kot police against Wutthipong accusing him committing lese majeste and sedition.
He said that he would travel to the other police stations to file complaints against Ko Tee.
The Criminal Court is expected to issue a warrant for the arrest of Ko Tee wanted by police on lese majeste charges.
high-ranking police officer is shielding Ko Tee
A police lieutenant general has been shielding Ko Tee from arrest, Democrat party’s chief legal team claimed Thursday.
Without naming name, Mr Wirat Kalayasiri said the police lieutenant general was not far away from where he was speaking and he was willing to give police the tip of where Ko Tee, or Wutthipong Kotthammakhun, had been hiding if the police had no idea where to look for him.
Wirat said that the police were able to arrest the “pop corn” gunman despite the fact that the suspect covered his face with a mask but were unable to arrest Tang Archiva, a vocational student wanted on lese majeste charge despite the fact that the suspect occasionally posted his images on the social media.
The Democrat suggested the national police chief, Pol Gen Adul Saengsingkaew, to take the police officer in question to task for protecting a criminal offender.
The Democrats on Thursday lodged a complaint with the Crime Suppression Division to arrest Ko Tee for allegedly defaming the Monarchy during his interview with a foreign media.

The CAPO said Ko Tee’s recent interview with a foreign journalist potentially violated Section 112 of the Criminal Code. An official probe into the offense is underway while an arrest warrant is expected to be secured on Friday.
A video clip was circulated online showing the interview in which Mr. Wuthipong made the offensive remark about the monarchy.
The CAPO warned members of the public not to share the video online, as the move is considered illegal under the Computer Crimes Act. Violators can face up to 15 years in prison.
