BANGKOK — A fugitive Redshirt activist wanted for allegedly insulting the monarchy and accused of plotting the assassination of junta leadership said Sunday that he’s no longer residing in Laos as thought by authorities.


Wutthipong Kochathammakun, or Ko Tee, told a US-based dissident reporter he had to flee Laos because of ongoing efforts by the Thai military to abduct or kill him there. The government accused Ko Tee and his network of amassing firearms in northern Bangkok for a number of plots, including one to assassinate the prime minister.
