3 Democrats to be sued over PM's hotel visit 'insult'
February 19, 2012 The ruling Pheu Thai Party is to file a defamation suit against three Democrat Party MPs for allegedly discrediting and defaming Prime Minister Yingluck over the Four Seasons Hotel controversy.
The three Democrats are party list MP Chavanond Intarakomalyasut, Nakhon Si Thammarat MP Thepthai Senpong and Songkhla MP Sirichok Sopa.
Pheu Thai Party spokesman Prompong Nopparit said the party legal team was drafting a criminal libel suit against the three Democrat MPs for insulting Yingluck in a Blue Sky programme over her visit to the Four Seasons Hotel on February 8. He said the party would let the PM decide if she wanted to file a civil suit against those who allegedly slandered her.
