The Prachachart Party on Monday asked police to bring charges against a Facebook user who alleged links between the party and last week’s bomb attacks in Bangkok.

Party leader Wan Muhammad Noor Matha sent Narathiwat MPs Kamolsak Leewamoh and Kuheng Yaworhasun and party executive Muhammad Shekharoon to file a formal complaint with Muang Narathiwat police against Piyapong Prasatthong.

Kamolsak claimed Piyapong posted on Facebook on Saturday morning that Prachachart was behind the bomb attacks, saying it hired young southern men to carry out the crime.

Kamolsak said Piyapong added the party’s logo to his post minutes later.

Kamolsak gave police print-outs of the post and asked them to charge Piyapong with defamation and violating the Computer Crime Act.

The same day at the same police station, “Thaweesak P”, another executive of the party and a former editor of the journal War Tani, filed a complaint unconnected to the party against another Facebook user, Aruj Panachinbonchon.

Thaweesak said Aruj posted an analysis online in which he accused him of being behind bomb attacks in the southern border provinces and of being linked to BRN and Permas, which the government views as terrorist groups.
