Thawip Netniyom, National Security Council (NSC) secretary, said Tuesday the issue would be discussed with his Lao counterpart at the Ministry of Public Security when he visits Vientiane in the near future.
Intelligence information indicated that five or six dissidents, mostly members of the Thai red-shirt opposition group, fled to Laos years ago during the hunt for members of the anti-junta group. Many of them are also wanted on lese majeste charges, Thawip said.
He added that dissidents did not live quietly in Laos but caused problems and criticised the junta via social media and Internet-based radio.
“I will hand information about their behaviour to the Lao minister of public security [Somkeo Silavong] when I meet him soon,” he said.
