Thai court protects law-breaker from India

The Civil Court has issued a temporary injunction for Indian business tycoon and activist Satish Sehgal against the deportation order signed by the Center for Maintaining Peace and Order (CMPO). Mr. Satish’s brother, Mr. Arthit Sehgal, today represented him in filing a lawsuit with the Civil Court against government authorities involved in the issuance of a CMPO order to revoke Mr Satish’s residency in Thailand. The authorities consist of Prime Minister Ms. Yingluck Shinawatra, CMPO Director Mr. Chalerm Yubamrung and members of the immigration committee.

The motion called for the judges to convene an urgent hearing in a bid to deliberate whether the CMPO order should be withdrawn and whether Mr Satish should be protected from being expelled from the kingdom. The court agreed to open an urgent hearing as requested and two witnesses on the plaintiff’s side were summoned for testimony. At the end, the court issued a temporary injunction for Mr Satish, prohibiting the defendants from arresting or deporting the business mogul until further ruling.
