BANGKOK (The Nation/ANN): Two pro-democracy protest leaders, Parit 'Penguin' Chiwarak and Piyarat 'Toto' Chongthep, gave statements to their supporters after facing police charges.
Piyarat, a member of the WeVo security team, wrote a letter to his supporters prior to his arrest on Tuesday (Nov 22) saying, “Thank you for your support and care. I have already planned everything for WeVo and without me they can keep moving because our soul and ideology is bonded and immutable to any person or symbol.”
Meanwhile, Ratsadon leader Parit said on his Facebook page that he faced two lese-majesty charges due to his speeches on Sept 19-20 and Nov 14.
He explained that he was not concerned about the charges but he was worried that “our country will degenerate because of such laws”. - The Nation/Asia News Network
