Did Thai Defense Minister ask Cambodia to arrest the 7 Thais?

The Bangkok Post:

Chaiwat Sinsuwong, a core leader of Thailand Patriot Network, claimed on Monday that he had received information that Defence Minister Prawit Wongsuwon was behind the arrest of the seven Thais by Cambodian troops on Dec 29.

He said Gen Prawit had contacted a Cambodian commander of a border army division, asking they arrest the Thais, who include a yellow-shirt network co-leader Veera Somkwamkid and a Democrat MP.

Mr Chaiwat said he had instructed yellow-shirts in the provinces planning to join rally against Cambodia at Government House to instead head directly to Sa Kaeo province.

If one had any doubts about the veracity of the story of Thais informing on each other to Cambodia, one can rest easy given we have “confirmation” from The Nation‘s Thanong of something suspicious:

Have overheard that some Thais notified the Khmers over the presence of the seven Thais at the border. This led to their arrest.

BP: We have fifth column elements in the country, if Chaiwat and Thanong are to be believed…..
