City police chief Pol Lt General Sanit Mahatovorn on Sunday said he would consult with Election Commission whether three persons who tore a ballot, reportedly out of misunderstanding, should face with legal action.

Sanit said the three were senior citizens who misunderstood that the ballot that has two sections should be torn apart.

“I will discuss the cases with EC to see whether the three should be prosecuted according to the referendum law or not,” he said.

Pipat Paesuwannarak, 69, of of Thung Kru district, Sophon Chutimanon, 75 of Bang Plat district and Somkiat Kriengkrai, 78, of Phrakanong district, tore the ballots.

There were reports of people in other provinces who also tore the ballot.
