FORMER RED SHIRT leader Jatuporn Prompan was freed from prison today (Oct. 14) and vowed to resume fighting against Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha.
Speaking to reporters outside Bangkok Remand Prison, Jatuporn said he will consult with friends and associates and get himself updated with the current political situation before he resumes movement to mount massive pressure upon Prayut to step down or dissolve the House of Representatives and call a general election.
Jatuporn who had organised the anti-Prayut street activism called the Thais Do Not Tolerate declined to tell how soon he will resume street protests against the army chief-turned-premier, whom he has accused of wreaking havoc to the whole country.
He said he has served the latest round of 97 days in jail for indicted offenses pertaining to a red shirt siege to Sisao residence of the late premier Prem Tinsulanonda over a decade ago.
The ex-red shirt leader was granted freedom under a royal pardon alongside some 50,000 inmates nationwide.
