Military officers from the 1st Army Region Command on Thursday summoned Chaturon Chaisang, a well-known politician from the Pheu Thai Party and former Education Minister.

Police arrested two people giving the three-fingered salute in front of Parliament in support of former PM Yingluck Shinawatra. The police at around 13:30 pm on Friday arrested a man and a woman who allegedly gave the three-fingered salute, a symbol of defiance against the junta derived from the ‘Hunger Games’ movie, in front of the Parliament compound in central Bangkok. The two came to support the former PM ousted by the coup d’état in May 2014, who was facing impeachment before the National Legislative Assembly (NLA) at Parliament on Wednesday.
