Police are putting together evidence to charge leaders of a political gathering on Saturday in Bangkok after finding out that the rally was held without permission.

Pol Maj-General Metee Rakpan, chief of Metropolitan Police Division 6 said the police were checking if the rally, near the Pathumwan intersection skywalk on Rama I Road, was against the law, as the leaders had not notified Pathumwan Police Station.

Senator Somchai Sawangkarn also posted a message on his Facebook account stating that the rally was illegal as the Public Assembly Act requires organisers to notify the event in advance, and prohibits the assembly from taking place within a 150-metre radius of the palace.

Future Forward Party (FWP) leader Thanathorn Juangroongruangkit had gathered his supporters on Saturday (December 14), to express their opposition to the current political situation and showing that people would not surrender to dictatorship.
