Eight Pheu Thai Party executives reported to police Monday to hear charges of sedition, violation of the ban on political gatherings of more than four people and the Computer Crimes Act.

The charges were made after the eight party executives held a press conference criticizing the junta’s failures after four years in power. They include former education minister Chaturon Chaisang, former deputy premier Kittiratt Na Ranong and former commerce minister Watana Muangsook.

Phumtham Wechayachai, one of the eight, said he doesn’t believe the charges will lead to the party’s dissolution.

Some 200 supporters showed up at Crime Suppression Division in Bangkok.
