BANGKOK (AFP) – The Thai junta has filed charges against seven pro-democracy activists who led a 100-strong rally calling for elections, authorities said yesterday, as the regime seeks to smother dissent over its latest poll postponement. The activists, who organised the demonstration in Bangkok on Saturday, are accused of “inciting unrest” and violating a junta ban on gatherings of more than five people that has been in place since the 2014 coup. The rally was held to protest against the military government’s move last week to delay elections scheduled for November until 2019.
