But police and the lawyer for activist Chaiyapon Danothai said he did not face lese majeste charges, which have been brought against at least 40 protesters since November and can mean a 15-year jail term if found guilty.

Protesters pushed and shoved about a dozen officers at a police station near Bangkok, where they believed Mr Chaiyapon was going to be charged.

There are no charges or arrest against him,” head of Khlong Luang police station, Mr Sethanat Timwat, told reporters.

Mr Chaiyapon‘s lawyer, Mr Noraset Nanongtoom, confirmed that no action had been taken

He said Mr Chaiyapon‘s name had appeared on a search warrant used during the arrest late on Wednesday of another activist, who is accused of defacing a portrait of King Maha Vajiralongkorn.
