Jatuporn Prompan, chairman of the United Front for Democracy Against Dictatorship, has been handed a one-year jail term for defaming former Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva over speeches he had made in 2009.
Kobkiat said if Jutaporn was sick, the department would ensure he gets medical care, but would not take him to an outside hospital.
Jatuporn was ill while under detention in Bangkok Remand Prison related to another case, and received medical treatment until he got well.
When moved, Jatuporn should inform prison officials about his health condition so that he can get proper treatment, Kobkiat suggested.
