On Friday, the Appeal Court ordered the Criminal Court to consider a malfeasance case against former attorney-general Chaikasem Nitisiri and his deputy.

The case was filed by 8 red shirts led by Veerakarn Musigapong, but was dropped by the Criminal Court on grounds that state prosecutors had done their duty according to the law. The Appeal Court overruled that decision and ordered the Criminal Court to rehear the case.
