Dean of the Faculty of Laws, Chiang Mai University, Dr.Somchai Preechasilapakul (สมชาย ปรีชาศิลปกุล), calls on the society to denounce people whose actions have caused international conflict concerning the Preah Vihear issue.

Dr.Somchai says the Preah Vihear issue has escalated following political problems in Thailand and requests all sides to stop their actions to worsen the Thai-Cambodian dispute over Preah Vihear. He also suggests people to resolve the conflict peacefully.

The dean also says there are some groups trying to seek benefits by using patriotism to make people hate the government and their fellow Thais.
