Thai court sets Jul 24 as next hearing date for PM Srettha removal case

Bangkok’s Constitutional Court set Jul 24 as the next hearing date for a case requesting the dismissal of Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin on Wednesday ( Jul 10 ) in search of additional evidence.

The situation may be resolved before September, the court announced earlier this month.

In a speech, the judge requests additional information, including data, from those who were formerly summoned.

In May, 40 military-appointed lawmakers filed a problem, which the legal judge accepted as a result of the prosecution’s legal action against Srettha.

The case involves the removal of the elite from power following Pichit Chuenban’s imprisonment for contempt of court. According to the problem, Pichit allegedly lacked the moral and ethical standards set forth in the law for ministers.

Srettha and Pichit have since resigned, and they have not been charged with any wrong.

A fresh government may be established if Srettha, a political newcomer, is removed from office, and his judgement Pheu Thai party would need to nominate a new leader to be approved by parliament.

The prime minister’s event is being looked into, as is another issue that calls for the criticism Move Forward party’s dissolution, which were unexpected winners of the elections last year and are the largest party in parliament.

According to experts, the two circumstances have heightened social confusion in the Southeast Asian nation.
