A prominent Indian businessman facing deportation from Thailand has said he will continue to participate in anti-government protests, even as the Thai authorities were considering his case.
Satish Seghal, former president of the India-Thai Business Association, appeared on the main rally stage at the busy Pathumwan intersection in the capital Thursday night and expressed solidarity with the protesters.
It was Seghal’s first appearance after the CMPO decided Monday to deport him for joining the People’s Democratic Reforms Committee that has been holding protests against PM Yingluck Shinawatra for the past two months seeking her ouster.
Department of Special Investigation chief Tarit Pengdith Thursday said any appeal would be invalid as Seghal’s deportation was activated under the state of emergency, put into effect by the CMPO.
