SAMUT PRAKAN — Soldiers and police early Thursday raided the home of former Pheu Thai MP Worachai Hema after he reportedly told the media that junta leader Gen. Prayuth Chan-ocha exercises his power in a fascist way.
About 10 soldiers entered into the 61-year-old’s family compound without permission and removed electric cabling believed to be part of its CCTV system. Worachai was not there, but it’s believed they were there to take him in for another round of detention.
A video clip apparently filmed from a house across the street shows soldiers inside Worachai’s compound. The video and pictures show the morning raid at his residence in Samut Prakan province, just south of Bangkok. He was apparently not home during the raid and as of press time about 10 officers continue to wait inside Worachai’s house.
