May 16 — Prof Dr Sombat Thamrongthanyawong, former president of the National Institute of Development Administration (NIDA), was detained this morning on charges of insurrection.
Police detained Dr Sombat at the NIDA parking lot on his arrival at the campus for work as usual.
He admitted that he is wanted under arrest warrants for insurrection as he joined the anti-government movement of the People’s Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC).
Dr Sombat was taken to investigators of the Department of Special Investigation (DSI) for questioning at the Royal Thai Police Sports Club on Vibhavadi Rangsit Road which is the office of the Centre for the Administration of Peace and Order (CAPO).
Dr Sombat said he rejects all charges filed against him and vowed to join the anti-government protest with the PDRC as it was the basic right under the Constitution. He stressed that he has done nothing wrong.
He said he planned to report to police next week after the Criminal Court approved arrest warrant against him and other PDRC leaders.
