Thailand's junta Wednesday summoned an opposition politician for "attitude adjustment" after he berated a senior general for making "sexist" remarks about ousted premier Yingluck Shinawatra.Military officials said Watana Muangsook, a prominent figure in the Pheu Thai party that was toppled by the 2014 army takeover, would be held in custody for up to seven days.While junta chief and Prime Minister General Prayut Chan-O-Cha is very much the front-man for Thailand's coup, his colleague Prawit is seen as an equally influential backroom operator.A former army chief and defense minister, Prawit is often described as the "Big Brother" of the Eastern Tigers, a clique of powerful generals who were prominent in both the 2014 and 2006 coups.
