Indian businessman appeals Thai King for his deportation order
 BANGKOK, March 6 - The family of renowned Indian businessman Satish Sehgal today submitted an appeal to the Royal Household Bureau, seeking for justice after the caretaker Thai government revoked his permanent residency status.

Lawyer Chup Chairitthichai and Arthit Sehgal, representing the long-time Bangkok-based Indian businessman, appeared at the Bureau of The Royal Household this morning to submit the letter to His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej.

They said Mr Satish could not come by himself for safety concerns and that he has never been given fair treatment on the case. As of now, Mr Satish has yet been summoned to clarify the allegations and no official deportation order has been sent to him.

Mr Arthit, who is the businessman's brother, said with a shaking voice, that Mr Satish is loyal to the Thai royal family and that his role in Thai politics is always aimed to show respect and his admiration to the royal family.

Mr Arthit said his brother, who joined the rallies of the People’s Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC), has never made any speech deemed to violate Thai law concerning the actions of foreigner who might threaten Thailand's national security.

He said that the entire Sehgal family, including his 90-year-old mother, are saddened by the government's decision.

The Sehgal family's move followed the report that caretaker Interior Minister Jarupong Ruangsuwan and Center for Maintaining Peace and Order's chief Chalerm Yoobamrung signed an order to deport Mr Satish yesterday for allegedly defying the emergency decree and leading anti-government protests, giving the police full authority to arrest the Indian businessman and deport him immediately.

Mr Satish's lawyer said that PDRC leader Thaworn Senneam will file a lawsuit against Mr Chalerm for violating the Civil Court order.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
