Protestors from the 24th June Democratic Group travel in front of the office of the National Counter Corruption Commission (NCCC) to demand NCCC members to resign claiming their appointment as unlawful.

Somyos Phrueksakasemsuk (สมยศ พฤกษาเกษมสุข) leads the protestors to the NCCC office to request for the resignation of all NCCC members as they claim that the present NCCC was appointed by the Council for Democratic Reform (CDR) who staged the 2006 coup d’état. They say the present NCCC should quit to allow for a new lawful NCCC panel.

Mr Somyos also says NCCC’s work violates Articles 248 and 249 of the Constitution. The NCCC should also return their salaries which are taxes paid by the people back to the country.
