Thailand has repeated its request for Laos to arrest hardcore red-shirt leader Wuthipong Kochathamakun, alias Kotee, as it believes the fugitive is continuing to stir up political trouble.

Deputy Prime Minister Prawit Wongsuwon has ordered that a letter seeking the arrest be sent to the special branch police of Laos, according to Gen Thawip Netniyom, secretary-general of the National Security Council (NSC).

The letter will be sent through the Lao embassy in Bangkok and the Thai embassy in Vientiane. It will ask for updates on earlier discussions in which Thai authorities informed their Lao counterparts that Kotee, 48, was persisting with his activities, Gen Thawip said.
