Protestors warned not to blow whistles or they will face legal action | Samui Times

On Monday it was announced that any protestors who blow whistles against any officials or members of the Department of Special investigation, or their chief Tarit Pengdid will face legal action.

The warning was issued by the DSI chief who said that anybody blowing a whistle would be deemed to be committing an offence against section 370 whistleof the criminal code for causing noise unreasonably against the section397 of the same code for bullying or for putting somebody to shame. The chief went on to say that the warning was not intended to escalate the political tension but to prevent violence. Tarit also warned DSI officials not to blow whistles as a gesture of protest against their superiors otherwise they may face dismissal from the service.

He accused former Democrat MP and protest leader Suthep Thuagsuban of inciting the protesters to oust him from the office and to blow whistles at him whenever they confront him. He claimed that Suthep held personal grudges against him because Suthep is being investigated by the DSI on several cases.
