BANGKOK, May 27--- Former prime minister Banharn Silpa-archa and other individuals, including flamboyant politician Chuwit Kamolvisit, summoned by the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) have appeared up at the Royal Thai Army auditorium in the Thewes area today.

The figures, who reported to the NCPO mainly in the late morning, included Chartthaipattana Party chief advisor Banharn Silpa-archa, Rak Thailand Party leader Chuwit Kamolvisit and chairman of the independent National Rule of Law Commission (NRLC) Ukrit Mongkolnavin.

The trio are among the 16 figures ordered by the NCPO last night to report to the authorities from 10am until noon today.

Other persons included Phadung Limcharoenrat, former secretary to the then interior minister, People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) leader Witthaya Kaewparadai and former Democrat MP Rangsima Rodrassami.

Meanwhile, ex-Pheu Thai MP Thitima Chaisaeng also reported to the NCPO after being ordered on May 24.

Ms Thitima is a younger sister of former education minister and Pheu Thai key member Chaturon, who was summoned earlier by the NCPO and has not yet reported to the authorities.

The NCPO announced last night that persons who did not show up at the Army auditorium between 10am to midday will face a maximum two years in jail or be fined Bt40,000, or both, as well as being prohibited from doing financial and banking transactions. (MCOT online news)

He referred to the reform of investment frameworks in government and private sectors, the improvement of education and innovation, solutions to social problems and inequality, good governance and corruption suppression, the improvement of government regulations and the introduction of new economic structures.

He said the private sector was ready to support restoring confidence and economic reform to change the nation.
