Foreign Minister Don Pramudwinai said on Tuesday that his ministry had yet to receive any order regarding cooperation with foreign countries regarding lese-majeste violators living in self-exile overseas.

Among the wanted figures is Wuttipong Kothhamakhun, or “Ko Tee”, a red-shirt figure who has been accused by the police of possessing war weapons at his former hideout in Pathum Thani.

Don also said his ministry would not be responsible for any extradition request, if there were to be one, from the Thai authorities.

“[The request] should be proceeded with by security officers. They’ve talked about this,” he said, adding, “We [the Foreign Ministry] only receive related information.”
