Turmoil in Thailand
Seen on NighWalker's T-shirt!
Spike from Pattaya Days was in Bangkok and visited Suthep's protesters.
The photos shows Suthep's 'Millions of Protestors'...

Property Market down
Thailand's Property Market was hit hard in the first quarter of 2014.
The sales plunged by 43%!
Say thank you to Suthep Thaugsuban and his People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) as well as to Abhisit Vejjajiva and his Democrat Party.
Manipulated Movies?
Former Democrat MP Sirichoke Sopha on Janaury 27th, 2014, unveiled three video clips showing supporters of the United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) torching the CentralWorld shopping complex on May 19, 2010.
Mr Sirichoke claimed he had spent almost three years trying to negotiate with an unnamed person in order to obtain the video clips, which clearly show who set fire to the CentralWorld store at Ratchaprasong intersection.
Three years are a long time, allowing his unnamed person to manipulate or even generate the three movies.

Bus hijacked
Suthep Thaugsuban's peace-loving (!) anti-democratic protesters hijacked two No.8 passenger buses in Bangkok.
Caretaker Transport Minister Chadchart Sittipunt ordered bus drivers to avoid going near rally sites.
No Tourists from Japan anymore
The Thai-Japan Tourist Association said that all Japanese tours to Thailand are cancelled. 1.4 million Japanese tourists visited Thailand last year. They spend an average of 20'000-30'000 Baht per person.
Singapore Airlines (SIA) confirmed it will cut another 24 flights to Bangkok, in addition to the 19 flights already announced. Since January 20th Tiger Air has axed some of its flights too.
Say thank you to Suthep Thaugsuban and his Cronies from Thailand's Democrat Party...
10 million Baht a day
Do you know that Suthep Thaugsuban's People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) has to spend more than 10 million Baht a day?
Armoured vehicles still in Bangkok
Armoured vehicles brought to Bangkok from the 2nd Infantry Division in Prachin Buri province for a parade of Thailand's Armed Forces have not returned to their bases.
They stay still in Bangkok and are prompting rumours of a possible military coup to bring Suthep Thaugsuban and his Rioters from Thailand's Democrat Party back to power.
General Prayuth Chan-ocha, the chief of Thailand's Army, wanted the vehicles to remain at the 11th Infantry Regiment in the city.
Army spokesman Col Winthai Suwari said the vehicles had been held back for other units to study as well as for training purposes...
Suthep, Thailand's Tourism Killer
Last week Bangkok's hotel's occupancy rate was only 20%, compared with 80% normally.
The numbers of customers at Bangkok's massage parlours dropped by 70%.
Pattaya tourist levels have dropped 80% from last year.
Say Thank You to Suthep Thaugsuban and his Cronies from Thailand's Democrat Party.
Hotels offer discounts to protesters
Centara Hotels, Novotel Bangkok Siam Square, Twin Towers Hotel and a few other ones have launched promotions, especially discounts on rooms, to attract protesters participating in the Bangkok Shutdown.
Election to go
ahead as scheduled
The election will be held on February 2. The government and EC [Election Commission] have no authority to postpone the poll from February 2nd, 2014, caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra announced today.
Life-threatening Students
Bangkok's Students and People Network for Thailand's Reform (SPNTR) announced they will close the entrance of Aeronautical Radio of Thailand if caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra refuses to resign before the deadline on Wednesday, January 15th, 2014.
Aeronautical Radio is in sole charge of all communications between aircraft and air traffic controllers in Thailand.
Uthai Yodmanee, a NSPRT core leader, said if there is any violence at Aerothai, the government must be held responsible.
It seems that Thailand's 'well-educated' students are even more stupid than the rest of the country.
Think twice before booking a plane from or to Thailand.
Update: January 15th, 2014
If Primje Minister Yingluck does not resign by January 15th, 20:00, the STR will block the stock market and the Aeronautical Radio of Thailand office. Any disruption of AeroThai's services could cause chaos for civilian aircraft, including domestic and international passenger flights, scheduled to land in Thailand, as well as those flying through Thai airspace, protest leader Uthai Yodmanee said.
About 1'400 flights land at and take off alone from Suvarnabhumi and Don Mueang airports everyday. More than 600 additional flights pass through the Thai airspace each day.
Let's hope that an incident resulting from the blockade will affect members of the Democrat Party and Bangkok's Elite only...
Think about -
before you hit Bangkok's streets!
Suthep Thaugsuban's demontrations are simply an attempt to regain power into the Elite's hands.
If corruption is the way of life in Thailand, it needs to be in the control of the Elite...
TiT (This is Thailand).
Please read Spike's analysis on Pattaya Days.
Coup is not a topic...
Army Chief Prayuth Chan-ocha claims a coup is not a topic, but he said the Army will protect 'The People'.
Suthep Thaugsuban claims he is The People.
Perhaps the General should clarify the Army's understanding of the term The People: Thailand's citizens or Bangkok's Elite.
Suthep Thaugsuban Asian of the year?
Bangkok's media report that Suthep Thaugsuban won the Asian Society's Person of the Year Poll.
Most publications here in Thailand missed to report how this happened.
Read How Thailand's Suthep Thaugsuban Ran Away With Our Person of the Year Poll. The report not only shows that Suthep's supporters 'manipulated' the poll, it shows you too how Thailand's media manipulate their readers.
Leave Thailand immediately!
The Foreign Ministry of Kuwait has urged all Kuwaiti nationals in Thailand to leave the country before January 13th, 2014, and to call off planned trips to the kingdom due to the political unrest and the unstable security situation.
Thailand's Ministry of Tourism and Sports said that the number of foreign tourist arrivals had dropped by about 300'000 as a result of the anti-governent rallies, leading to an estimated revenue loss of 20 billion baht.
A trip in Bangkok will not take a couple of hours as it does now, it could be four or five hours from January 13th on caretaker Transport Minister Chadchat Sittipunt already warned.
45 countries issued travel warnings for Bangkok, some even for Thailand as a whole.
Thanks to Suthep
The numbers of Chinese tourists to Phuket will drop by 40% this month, despite that Chinese New Year falls on January 31.
Say Thank You to Suthep Thaugsuban and his 'Democratic' cronies.
Phuket is part of the stronghold of Thailand's Democrat Party in Southern Thailand.
Chinese tourists simply don't like rioters provoking instability and a political chaos.
No Coup
on January 14th?
Observers believe that Suthep Thaugsuban, his People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC), Abhisit Vejjajiva's undemocratic Democrat Party as well as former defence minister Prawit Wongsuwan and former army chief Anupong Paochinda, both said to be close to Suthep, have a secret plan to lure Thailand's military into staging a coup.
Rumours say that a plan is under way to create a pretext for Thailand's troops to intervene: A small violent attack on protesters will be staged to set the coup in motion.
People belonging to the inner circle already contacted PDRC's astrologers, but they singled out January 14th as an auspicious day...
Suthep already announced that a coup happens as a result from the government's own faults.
As during the preparation of the Army's last coup, Thailand's media are full of statements from Thailand's Army Leaders that the Army is not planning a coup.
Thai Army moves in heavy artillery
Thailand's Army announced thay it will moves heavy guns, tanks, helicopters, artillery and armaments into Bangkok this Monday night for the parade marking Thailand's Army Day on January 18th, 2014.
The army said people should not feel nervous about a military coup. Tanks are out for kids - not for a coup.
Let's wait and see...
Arrest warrants against protest leaders?
Thailand's Department of Special Investigation (DSI), also known as Thailand's FBI, said it will seek arrest warrants for 33 core leaders of the anti-government protests.
Lek Losso
Democracy à la Suthep
Thanks to Suthep Thaugsuban one of Thailand's most popular Rock stars had to cancel his concert in Phuket.
After Sek Loso published on his Facebook page that he will support the February 2nd election Phuket's governor, a supporter of Thailand's undemocratic Democrat Party, asked him to postpone the concert.
When Sek Loso denied to postpone the concert about 500 anti-government protesters forced the cancellation of the concert.
Suthep's rowdies even 'closed' Sek Loso's mouth on his poster(s).
That's Suthep's style of Democracy - very similar to Hitler's Third Reich...
Singapore Airlines cancels flights to Thailand
Singapore Airlines announced that it will cancel 19 flights to Bangkok from mid-January to late February due to the political turmoil initiated by Thailand's Democrat Party and its rioter Suthep Thaugsuban.
The number of visitors from China and Russia has already dropped by 25-30%. Bangkok, Pattaya, Hua Hin and Cha-am are the most affected cities.
At a meeting with the Pattaya Business and Tourism Association the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) even lamented a drop of 50% compared to the previous year.
The members of Bangkok's Elite wrecks their own country and ruin oneself. Bravo - truly clever and well-educated...
Update January 6th, 2014
Cathay Pacific and Hongkong Airlines also announced plans to reduce flights to Bangkok.
Update February 11th
On March 30, 2014, United Airlines (UA) will terminate its daily Bangkok-Narita flights. The termination is due to the route's underperforming financial results, an UA spokesman said.
The seriously dangerous fault lines that exist in Thailand are starting to become obvious to the international community and international investors.
The Elite of Bangkok (controlling courts, army, big business and the palace) have silently orchestrated the events of the past few months.
Knowing that democracy will never deliver them power, they have had to use destructive alternative practices and care little for the average Thai or the attendant economic vandalism.
According to Thailand's Centre for Maintaining Peace and Order (CMPO) the following firms and individuals funded Suthep Thaugsuban and his People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC):
Official list postponed on February 11th, 2014.
The List postponed above was approved by Thailand's Anti-Money Laundering Office (Amlo), the Royal Thai Police Office, the Department of Special Investigation (DSI), the Office of the Narcotics Control Board (Oncb) and the Revenue Department.

The Country is now in the hand of Thailand's Army.
Suthep Thaugsuban and his Cronies from Thailand's Democrat Party are terrorizing Bangkok.
On January 21st at about 18:45 the caretaker government invoked the emergency law in Bangkok and the surrounding areas for two months to control ongoing political protests. On March 19th Thailand's caretacking Government lifted the state of emergency in Bangkok, but replaced it by the Internal Security Act (ISA). The ISA will be in place until April 30th. The Internal Security Act is a less harsh law but still allows the authorities to impose curfews, operate security checkpoints and restrict the movement of protesters as needed.

Suthep Thaugsuban
One of Suthep Thaugsuban's peace-loving anti-democratic gunmen.
His jacket is dubbing him as The North Face...
Probably one of the ominous Men in Black killing some Red Shirts during 2010.
Suthep Thaugsuban Suthep Thaugsuban, the self-appointed secretary-general of the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC), announced to paralyse Bangkok on January 13th, 2014.
He warned that his movement will take all roads of Bangkok. His 'people' will show their power and their rejection of the Yingluck government and Thaksin Regime.
The protesters will cut electricity and tap water at government offices and at the homes of caretaker ministers including caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra. No government officials will be able to work from that day on. Thai people will no longer tolerate the government's corruption and abuse of power, the dictator claims.
Public transportation such as bus, Skytrain, subway and airline services would not be affected and all roads will have a spare lane for ambulances and other emergency vehicles. Government vehicles, however, will not be allowed to use the spare lane, Suthep says.
His rally will show the world that the Yingluck government, which is under the 'Thaksin Regime', is corrupt and has done nothing to serve people and the country. In his eyes 'the public' (read his supporters) do(es) not support the Yingluck Shinawatra-led government. The government does not have the moral right to continue to administer the country.
All TV stations in Thailand have to carry live coverage of the announcement by the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) - or they must show a black screen during that time, he ordered.
Suthep Thaugsuban, Thailand's 'reincarnation of Adolf Hitler' and himself one of the country's most corrupt politician, still believes that millions of people joined his mass rallies held on December 9th and 22nd last year.
Bangkok's dictator still has the support of a big part of Bangkok's power-hungry Elite. The daughter of Singha brewery owner, an anti-government leader herself, claimed a few days ago: We're not taking away democracy. We just need some time to reform the country before we can move on to democracy. The problem is that many Thais lack a true understanding of democracy - especially in the rural areas. The 'apparently well educated lady' damned every single rural voter as an idiot.
The tyrant tried to block the registration of constituency MP candidates for the February 2nd election around Thailand, but - fortunately - only in the South of Thailand, the stronghold of Abhisit Vejjajiva 's 'Democrat Party', Suthep's mob succeeded. The PDRC blocked all the application centre in Surat Thani, Nakhon Si Thammarat, Trang and Songkhla. In Surat Thani province 37 members of the election committees resigned from their posts under pressure from Suthep's anti-government protesters.
Thailand's Department of Special Investigation (DSI), public prosecutors and police filed murder charges against Suthep Thaugsuban. According to a Criminal Court ruling deaths and injuries sustained by red-shirt protesters during the political unrest in April and May 2010 are the direct result of order to soldier given by Suthep Thaugsuban.
Thailand's Elite controlled media apparently are supporting not only one of Thailand's most corrupt politicians but also an indicted murderer. His supporters, many of them members of Bangkok's 'highly educated' Elite, seem to be so stupid that they don't see Suthep use them for the sole reason to prevent him from being prosecuted by Thailand's judiciary. Without their help Suthep Thaugsuban would spend the rest of his life behind bars...
As Wikipedia shows, since 1992 the Democrat Party never won a election in Thailand. They got to power only with the help of Thailand's powerful but politicized army. The party's stronghold is in the South of Thailand, but it has the support of Bangkok's so called Elite.

Please read Thailand on the brink too. Read the comments too, they reveal the real face of Suthep Thaugsuban's anti-government protesters...
January 12th, 2014
The megalomaniacal Dictator said in this battle, to lose is to lose, a win is win. there will be no win-win. Only one side will win. The defeat of the Thaksin regime means all politicians will know that from now on the Thai people will no more let them ruin the country. I am confident that the people definitely will not lose. But when and how we will win, I cannot answer that as I am not a fortune teller. I only know that we will not lose. The day most government officials - if not all - make a firm decision to back the PDRC, that will be the day of victory.
January 13th, 2014
Bangkok's Dictator Suthep Thaugsuban said we will shut down the city. We will do it all days and we will do it everyday until we win. No negotiations. No compromise.
January 14th, 2014
Suthep Thaugsuban, the careless kidnapping leader of the PDRC, announced to capture the following five caretaker Cabinet members: Deputy Prime Minister Surapong Tovichakchaikul, Labour Minister Chalerm Yoobamrung, Deputy Prime Minister Pracha Promnog, Education Minister Chaturon Chaisang, and Deputy Prime Minister Plodprasop Suraswadi.
Government buildings will be completely shut down in the next few days. I will take the lead, the dictator told his supporters.
Later on the day, Suthep announced to close all government offices in the coming days. I will detain the prime minister and all members of her cabinet and cut power and water to their homes. I think they should send their children and spouses elsewhere, the dictator warned the ministers.
January 15th, 2014
Protest leader Suthep Thaugsuban announced that every state office will be shut down by the end of this week. After that we will visit each minister's house. The time for this government is running out and we will win for sure, and added that 90 percent of media outlets are being fair with the protesters except the Matichon and Khao Sod dailies and news presenter Sorayuth Suthassanachinda at TV Channel 3. If the media are not good with their work, we shall visit them the dictator told his audience.
January 16th, 2014
No news from protest leader Suthep Thaugsuban today. He starts to repeat his declarations again and again...
January 17th, 2014
A 'bomb', allegedly an M26 grenade, exploded in front of a protest march lead by anti-government protest leader Suthep Thaugsuban at about 13:00. The grenade attack injured 39 protesters, one of them died on Saturday morning.
Suthep Thaugsuban says he holds the caretaker government responsible for the grenade attack, but fact is that the PDRC made a last minute change to the course and marched to Banthat Thong, the street where the grenade was launched.
After the attack, Suthep's guards stormed an empty building on the new route which was in the process of being demolished.
There the guards allegedly found disassembled rifles, four walkie-talkies, a red-coloured shirt and cap bearing an attacking unit logo, look-a-like police pass cards and hand-held radios. The guards prevented Police and reporters from entering the building. Only television crews from Channel 5, Channel 9 and BlueSky Channel were later allowed to film the inspection inside. Police investigators and forensic workers were blocked from entering the scene.
Nevertheless, Suthep denied he had been behind the grenade attack himself, but demanded that Police uncover the truth in their investigation into the bomb explosion...
January 18th, 2014
Suthep Thaugsuban and his guards still do not allow Police to enter the scene to examine evidence, but the PDRC guards handed over three M16 riffles which are not assembled, four walkie-talkies and a cap bearing an "attacking unit" logo to Pathumwan police station. The chief of the Forensic Science Police Office said that the war weapons found in the room are fake. In the meantime Police questioned the owner of the unoccupied residence. He admitted that the walkie-talkies and cap belonged to him, but not the guns.
A question remains still unanswered: Why Suthep Thaugsuban made a last minute change to the course and marched to Banthat Thong? He, the Democrat Party and Suthep's People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) are the sole beneficiaries of such an attack.
January 19th, 2014
Almost two months after the protests started, Thailand's 'experts' warn the high noise levels, overcrowded conditions and bad language at Suthep Thaugsuban's anti-government protests sites. They warn the experience could have a negative effect on children's mental and physical health. Children also end up copying the bad behaviour, the experts say...
At about 13:30 another grenade attack injured 28 anti-government protesters near a press centre tent behind the rally stage. The bomber toss two grenades before fleeing on a motorcycle taxi.
A PDRC co-leader believes the bomb thrower was one of six assailants at the scene. Police claim a CCTV footage has given a clear picture of the suspect responsible for today's attack.
According to Royal Thai Police the grenades are of the same type as the one used on Friday, but it is too early to say if the attacker was the same person.
At about 20:40 local time a security guard at the rally site of the Network of Students and People for Reform of Thailand (SPNTR) was shot and injured by an attacker reportedly armed with a silencer-equipped gun.
Obviously ignoring the attacks, anti-government protest leader Suthep Thaugsuban vowed to raise the level of demonstrations. His decision will further the tension between Thailand's citizens.
The People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) protesters destroyed with impunity some ballot papers for the February 2nd election which were kept at a printing house on Lat Phrao road. The rioters declared that no official is to go inside the printing house. They even put glue inside the lock(s)...
According to latest reports, the assailant who threw grenades at the Victory Monument is a Navy Officer.
January 20th, 2014
Bangkok Metropolitan Administration Governor MR Sukhumbhand Paribatra said 16 security cameras of the BMA failed to record anything because protesters had covered them with bags.
Naval Special Warfare Commander Rear Adm Winai Klom-in announced to sue the Royal Thai Police if it is established that police caused misunderstanding on online social networks that one of his subordinates was the Victory Monument bomber. The Commander believes that the Royal Thai Police contributed to the distribution of false information. The officer was on a mission to fight against drug trafficking and is not the bomb suspect, he claims.
According to Deputy Metropolitan Police Commissioner Pol Maj Gen Adul Narongsak the two grenade attacks were definitely linked because the assailants used the same the type grenades.
Anti-government protesters under the PDRC marched to the GSB (Government Savings Bank) headquarters to pressure the bank not to allow its funds to be used in the rice-pledging scheme.
Anti-government loyal staff at the Bank for Agriculture and Agricultural Cooperatives (BAAC) wore black clothes in symbolic opposition to any use of the bank's liquidity to finance the government's rice-pledging scheme.
Suthep Thaugsuban is blocking payments to farmers that sold their rice to the Government. in an attempt to keep the fire at angry farmers.
January 21st, 2014
Anti-government protesters in Chumphon ordered the provincial election committee to send back general election ballot papers received from Bangkok. The Chumphon post office is the distribution point for election ballot papers for Chumphon, Ranong, Surat Thani, Phangnga and Phuket.
Protest leader Suthep Thaugsuban vowed to defy all orders issued under the 60-day emergency decree invoked by the caretaker government. We will step up our rallies to counter the emergency decree. We will defy them all. We will march on every road they have banned us. We will use loudspeakers even if they prohibit us from doing so. We will do everything they forbid us to do, Thailand's Dictator told his audience. It's hard to believe, but this unscrupulous, ruthless and furious agitator obviously has still the support of most of Thailand's media, including Bangkok Post and The Nation.
January 22nd, 2014
Suthep Thaugsuban, Thailand's liar #1, still tell his people that the Government is behind the attacks. Don't use weapons against us. Not only will you be met by the people, but you will have to stand up against the soldiers, the liar said. In fact Army chief Gen Prayuth Chan-ocha said [Suthep and his agitators] are threatening Government Officials and mobilising their people to trigger clashes.
In the meantime Suthep Thaugsuban's rowdies closed all major government and state enterprise offices in Songkhla province. They chained and locked up the doors of the offices.
January 23rd, 2014
Suthep Thaugsuban and his People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) announced they will try to disrupt advance voting for the February 2nd election in Bangkok on Sunday, January 26th, 2014.
January 24th, 2014
Liar Suthep Thaugsuban claims that his People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) is a pro-democracy movement.
Let me assure you that the PDRC is not conducting an anti-democratic uprising. In fact, the PDRC is a pro-democracy movement intent upon removing the dictatorial regime led by Yingluck Shinawatra, who has been empowered through and directed by her elder brother, Thaksin Shinawatra. Thai citizens are morally responsible to rise up and demand removal of both Yingluck and the influence of Thaksin, then define and implement the reform necessary to ensure that the Kingdom of Thailand remains free from unjust and corrupt leaders in the future. The reform will bring about ''free and fair'' elections, the megalomaniac PDRC leader (and one of Thailand's most corrupt politician...) wrote in a letter he sent to US President Barack Obama and United Nations Secretary-general Ban Ki-moon. The liar forget to mention that according to the latest poll published today 80% of Thailand's citizens want to vote on February 2nd, 2014.
Update: Suthep Thaugsuban and his Cronies from Thailand's Democrat Party confiscated ballots in Songkhla. They also surrounded the advance poll booth at Laksi. That's what the big liar calls pro-democracy.
Suthep Thaugsuban's mob blocked 45 of Bangkok's 50 advance polling stations. The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA), controlled mainly by the 'undemocartic' Democrat Party, advised its officials at central polling stations to vacate the places in case of unrest or riot.
Due to blockades by Suthep's anti-democratic protesters advance polling stations were closed in Phuket, Nakon Si Thammarat, Chumphon, Surin and Samut Songkram too.
At about 14:00 Police said that all polling stations in Bangkok have been closed due to blockades by Suthep's anti-democratic People's Democratic Reform Committee.
Barack Obama and leaders around the world just learned what Suthep Thaugsuban, Thailand's reincarnation of Adolf Hitler, understand as 'pro-democracy'. He is a big liar and a lawbreaker, but nothing else.
January 27th, 2014
After the deadly shooting of Sutin Tharatin, a core leader of the People's Democratic Force to Overthrow Thaksinismone and a PDRC's allied group, during a clash outside a blocked polling station in Bang Na, the obviously sick Suthep Thaugsuban blamed the Government for the attack and urged the military to form a special unit to help safeguard the protesters.
The rights and freedoms of the people are guaranteed under the constitution, so we hope the armed forces see this fighting and will protect us, he claimed.
He didn't mention that it is everybodys right to vote and that he and his cronies are lawbreaker and have to be arrested immediately.
Anti-government protest leader Suthep Thaugsuban announced that he nor his People's Democratic Reform Committee protesters will negotiate with the Centre for Maintaining Peace and Order (CMPO). He will forge ahead with the Bangkok Shutdown campaign.
The US Department of State is deeply troubled by anti-government protests that blocked advance general election voting, spokeswoman Jen Psaki said.
The army can not form a special unit to help safeguard protesters, deputy army spokesman Winthai Suvari says. Genaral Prayuth Chan-ocha, the chief of Thailand's Army, wants to ensure the law is enforced equally for all, he added.
General Prayuth Chan-ocha also has warned troops not to station themselves together with guards at rally sites.
In a statement Unicef Thailand expressed extreme concern about the number of pupils whose education has been disrupted by the ongoing political crisis.
The caretaker government insisted today that the general election will go ahead as planned. Thailand's EC (Election Commission), inaugurated after the last military coup and still supporting the Democrat Party, warned the government over potential chaos and violence on polling day. All five election commissioners had gone to the meeting with the hope of convincing caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra to postpone the Feb 2 election.
Suthep Thaugsuban already announced that his anti-democratic mob from the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) will disrupt the polls on February 2nd.
The EC promised to hold second elections for voters in areas where protesters disrupt the polls or where candidates have been unable to register...
Thailand's Criminal Court rejected the Department of Special Investigation's (DSI) request for arrest warrants for at least 16 core members of the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC).
Suthep Thaugsuban obviously is lying again. He told his audience that Thailand's Army will protect his People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC), but, according to Thailand's media, Army spokesman Col Winthai Suwari told the press that the army will do all it can within the scope of law to protect the general public from anti-government and anti-election protest violence. The military is working with the Centre for Maintaining Peace and Order (CMPO) to adjust security measures in line with the evolving political situation, he said.
Bangkok's corrupt trouble maker Suthep Thaugsuban announced that his protest marches for three consecutive days will paralyse Bangkok and turn it into one big walking street and picnic ground for Sunday's general election. He also urged City Hall's Officials to close all district offices in Bangkok and join the PDRC protests from Thursday to Sunday. As last week he claimed the marches were not intended to obstruct the election...
Suthep Thaugsuban and his cronies still try to prevent the election: They asked the commissioners of the Election Commission (EC) to resign. The commissioners' resignation would help solve the political stalemate by stopping the election. This would also prevent the chaos and violence the election is expected to cause, one of Suthep's crony said.
Post exchange centres in Songkhla, Nakhon Si Thammarat and Chumphon announced that they are unable to distribute ballot boxes and ballots to polling stations in these areas. The People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) prevent officials from taking out ballots and boxes for distribution.
Futhermore, the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) petitioned to the Civil Court for the revocation of the emergency decree and to urgently deliberate the PDRC's case for an injunction to protect Suthep's protesters.
In the meantime international investors announced to shift long-term investments to neighbouring countries. A wise decision. Nobody can trust Thailand's Elite.
Suthep Thaugsuban and his cronies still tell the same sh*t as published above and get the applause of their apparently completely stupid audiences. Bangkok Post, The Nation as well as about 90% of Thailand's leading Newspapers are supporting the demagogue(s). They still fellow their Masters Voices: They told the journalists directly or indirectly to what extent they could report on the rallies.
Former Prime Minister and anti-democratic Democrat Party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva, who apparently forget everything he once learned in England, told the press that he will not exercise his voting right in February 2nd's election.
Several provinces in the South of Thailand seem not to be ready for tomorrow's election as millions of ballot papers have yet to be delivered to polling stations. Anti-government protesters are still blocking post offices in Chumphon, Thung Song district in Nakhon Si Thammarat and Hat Yai in Songkhla. Election Commission (EC) member Somchai Srisutthiyakorn said not a single ballot card for party-list votes had been sent out of the post offices in the three southern provinces. With its kind of 'working' the EC indirectly is supporting Suthep Thaugsuban and his allies.
The Bank of Thailand has to work from its backup centre. Its headoffice is a target of Suthep Thaugsuban and his People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) and their 'shutdown' policy.
It's a well kept secret how a few thousand 'people' can join Suthep Thaugsuban's rallies for more than 90 days and pay their rents, the invoices for the electricity and the waterworks, their living and the donations to Suthep's organisations without working. Workless people here in Thailand have to be rich or have to have open-handed ghosts.
Thailand's media obviously are not authorised to reveal the secret...
Suthep Thaugsuban and his cronies from the undemocratic Democrat Party are Thailands biggest liars: They told the press a few times that the marches were not intended to obstruct the election. Nevertheless they still block the delivery of ballot cards for party-list votes not only in the South of Thailand but also in Bangkok.
The Democrat Party likes to get to the power without an election, but with the help of its protesters, Thailand's Election Commission (EC), the Courts and, if possible, Thailand's Military. Most of Thailand's Top Brass are supporting Suthep & Co., but not its lower cadre(s).
Every time in the past, when the Democrat Party took the lead, the corruption raised to new levels - as did the smuggling of illegal drugs.
Abhisit Vejjajiva, Thailand's former Prime Minister and the leader of the Democrat Party, said he would not vote on Sunday because the poll was unconstitutional.
The lovely man forget that the 2007 charter, particularly the section on election regulations, was altered by the (unelected) Democrat-led government with the help of Thailand's Military and not by the current administration.
We recommend Mr. Abhisit to consult a doctor. He not only forget everything he learned in England, but also the major work he did being Prime Minister of Thailand.
Apparently he speaks already under the influence of a disease called Alzheimer.
It seems Abhisit Vejjajiva was the most stupid Prime Minister Thailand ever had: Just the right person to be the puppet of the Military.
Suthep Thaugsuban says his People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) had not obstructed anyone from voting and did not intervene at polling units. His rowdies only interfered with the places where ballot papers were kept. He announced to take legal action against caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra for wasting 3.8 billion Baht of taxpayer money because her government could not hold a successful general election...
We're the voice of the majority who will protect democracy by going through reform before holding an election. The PDRC will try to end this game quickly because the government can no longer claim legitimacy. The poll is already over but the government remains stubborn, anti-government co-leader Sathit Wongnongtoey said.
The Democrat Party announced that it will seek to nullify polls.
The election was a loss for the anti-government People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) and a show of defiance by Thais to reaffirm their basic rights, academics said.
It's time to arrest all these anti-democratic rowdies from the Democrat Party.
Suthep Thaugsuban and his People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) had to shut down two of their stages and are now joining 'the people' at Lumpini Park, because the number of protestors is diminishing with every single day. Suthep is on the loser street, but he told his people that he left the two locations because they were vulnerable to attack and prone to violence. Nevertheless the dictator announced that he will continue the campaign to prevent government offices from opening by preventing officials entering the buildings. He also said that he will block the homes of caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra and other caretaker cabinet ministers. We will not go inside, but we will lock them up in their houses an obviously mad leader said.
From today, we believe that the government will resort to violence. After we accomplish this mission, we will declare our victory again, an apparently sik Suthep said.
Suthep and his cronies are trying to save their face. He knows he's lost and he lost big, but he's a fool.
Thailand's so called Democrat Party tries to win the election in the court room. They already announced to bring the first legal case against the government to the Constitutional Court. Democrat leader Abhisit Vejjajiva will lodge a petition against the government for holding the poll unconstitutionally. The government violated Article 68, he said. This article prohibits people from exercising a right with the aim of overthrowing the democratic system, or of acquiring power to rule the country by any means not in accordance with the Constitution, he claims.
He also announced that his party would ask the anti-graft body to file criminal charges against Yingluck and Cabinet members to order the dissolution of Pheu Thai Party, disqualify its executives and ban 18 Cabinet members who are Pheu Thai MP candidates.
The government's peacekeeping centre should not blame Bangkok's city officials who resigned as election staff for the failure to hold polls in some polling stations, Bangkok Governor Sukhumbhand Paribatra said. The Governor is a member of the (undemocratic) Democrat Party. Any investigation, if it were to take place, would be the duty of the Election Commission (EC), not the CMPO, he claimed. As you know, the EC is a close ally of the Democrats too. They are working together on all levels to bring back the power to Bangkok's perverse Elite.
Protest leader Suthep Thaugsuban has 210 million Baht in assets, but 323 million Baht in depts. Suthep's bank accounts have been frozen by the Department of Special Investigation (DSI), Thaland's FBI. This can explain his undemocratic behavior: He has nothing to lose than his life...
Thailand's Criminal Court issued arrest warrants for 19 anti-democratic core leaders for defying state of emergency decree.
Suthep Thaugsuban, Sathit Wongnongtoey, Chumpol Julasai, Putthipong Punnakant, Issara Somchai, Withaya Kaewparadai, Thaworn Senneam, Nathapol Teepsuwan, Akanat Promphan, Anchalee Paireerak, Nitithorn Lamlua, Uthai Yodmanee, Samdin Lertbut, Gen Preecha Iamsuphan, Ratchayut Sirayothinpakdi, Kittichai Saisa-ard, Samran Rodphet, Sonthiyan Chuenruthainaitham and Pansuwan Na Kaew are the 19 suspects.
Thailand's Centre for Maintaining Peace and Order (CMPO) will announce soon the names of about 120 individuals and juristic persons found to have provided support for the PDRC.
Prosecutors rejected Suthep Thaugsuban's request to postpone his indictment on charges of premeditated and attempted murder in connection with the 2010 political violence again.
Former prime minister Abhisit Vejjajiva and Suthep Thaugsuban have been charged with premeditated and attempted murder for ordering the Centre for the Resolution of the Emergency Situation (CRES) to crack down on red-shirt protesters with the United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) in 2010, resulting in more than 90 deaths and hundreds of injuries.
Abhisit reported for indictment in December last year, but Suthep Thaugsuban has sought several postponements of his indictment, using his involvement in the rallies as an excuse. Suthep got a 'last' chance to report on February 13th, otherwise he will be 'arrested'.
Constitutional Court rejects Democrat's request for Pheu Thai's dissolution.
Constitutional Court rejects Pheu Thai's complaint against the anti-government People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) and its affiliates of wanting to overthrow the political system.
Former Bank of Thailand governor Pridiyathorn Devakula on Thursday called for caretaker premier and the government to resign, saying they are failed government. 'No one now trusts them anymore. Allow a setting up of central government that is acceptable by every party', he said. The members of Bangkok's Elite believe they speak for the majority of Thais...
Police Lt Gen Winai Thongsong is in charge of arresting leaders of the People's Democratic Reform Committee, his boss, Police Commissioner General Pol Gen Adul Saengsingkaew, said.
The Centre for Maintaining Peace and Order (CMPO) banned 58 PDRC leaders from travelling abroad, Department of Special Investigation (DSI) chief Tarit Pengdith said. If they try to leave the country, Thailand's Immigration Bureau has to arrest and detain any of them.
Suthep Thaugsuban and his People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) surrounded the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and demanded civil servants there to stop working and to go home immediately. Then they marched to the Ministry of Science and Technology and the Ministry of Industry and told the officials the very same order.
Thailand's Election Commission (EC) proposed that the caretaker government should seek a new Royal Decree for a new poll date for 28 constituencies in eight southern provinces that had no candidates in the February 2 election. It's just another approach to delay the necessary votings and to manoeuvre the caretacking Government into a trap.
Anti-government protest leader Suthep Thaugsuban is urging Farmers to sue the Government for defaulting on payments due to them under the rice-pledging scheme. The PDRC will pay for the legal expenses, he said.
At least four of the seven suspects in the shooting of red-shirt leader Kwanchai Praipana on January 22nd, 2014, are army soldiers whose ranks range from sergeant to chief warrant office.
Udon Thani's Court approved warrants for the arrest of four soldiers and sent a letter to inform their respective units.
It is said that a well-respected elder person in the South of Thailand had offered a 1.5-million-Baht bounty for the murder of the hardline red-shirt member.
Finally the Police start arresting Bangkok's trouble maker.
At 13:30 officials arrested Sonthiyan Chuenruthainaitham, a core member of the People's Democratic Reform Committee and owner the T-News agency and satellite television station at the Central Department Store in Lat Phrao.
The Centre for Maintaining Peace and Order (CMPO) postponed the publishing of the names of 136 firms and individuals that have funded the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC). It's for the sake of justice for all, the Department of Special Investigation (DSI) said.
The CMPO assigned the Anti-Money Laundering Office (Amlo), the Royal Thai Police Office, the Department of Special Investigation (DSI), the Office of the Narcotics Control Board (Oncb) and the Revenue Department to examine the 136 names before they will be revealed to the public.
Therefore we have to wait again until consumers can decide democratically if they want to support these anti-democratic businesses in the future - or not.
Upside down: Anti-democratic Democrat Party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva has called on caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra to accept the fact that the February 2 general election was unsuccessful and recognise that new balloting should be called off.
The dirty side of Thai politics:
Abhisit Vejjajiva and his Democrat Party MPs resign en-masse so the Government is forced to dissolve parliament.
Suthep Thaugsuban's People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) force the closure of the Finance Ministry, so the rice farmers cannot be paid.
Thailand's Election Commission (EC) refuses the Government's request to pay the rice farmers, in attempt to escalate the plight of the farmers.
The PDRC puts pressure on the elite run banks to refuse to fund the payment of the rice farmers.
Suthep Thaugsuban pretends to help the farmers fight the Government, while at the same time says he wants to end all 'populist policies' like the rice subsidy scheme.
And now Thailand's National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) joins in to bring formal charges against caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra for her role in the rice-pledging scheme.
Thailand's Elite plays every game to get back to power.
The dirty side of Thai politics on full view.
Prof Pasuk Phongpaichit of Chulalongkorn University's economics faculty warned that an appointed government proposed by protesters as a 'people's council' could worsen Thailand's chronic corruption problems and might change the law without clear procedures. This is one of the loopholes that can lead to corruption, violation of human rights and many other issues, she told a seminar hosted by the Thailand Development Research Institute (TDRI).
Nikon Corporation and Toyota Motor Corporation announced that they will be shifting parts of their production bases from Thailand to Laos and some of the 7'000 Japanese companies based in Thailand are considering a move too.
The Japan External Trade Organization (Jetro), which assists Japanese companies in their overseas operations, plans to open an office in Vientiane this year.
Japanese investment in Laos hit US$405.7 million last year, up 15% year-on-year.
Some of Suthep Thaugsuban's financial supporters are treathening to sue the CMPO for defamation if the government fails to produce sufficient evidence to back its accusations and is publishing their names.
That's something we can't understand. According to Suthep Thaugsuban, he represents the majority of this country and publishing the name of his supporters would be free advertisements for them and certainly would push their sales...
People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) 'superman' Suthep Thaugsuban has sought another postponement, until March 13, of the order he report to the prosecution for indictment on charges of murder and attempted murder in connection with the crackdown on red-shirt protesters during the 2010 political violence...
Suthep Thaugsuban and his cronies announced a big Love Thailand and break up with Thaksin party weekend to celebrate Maka Bucha and Valentine's day on Bangkok's Streets. Probable with free Foods, Drinks and Ice Creams provided by Suthep's anti-democratic supporters...
After an hours-long standoff with the anti-government protesters police aborted the plan to crack down on the mob at the Government Complex at Chaeng Wattana after the monk leader there led protesters to sit down and pray.
Dharma has beat the evil, a leader of the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) said...
The People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) is ready to end the ongoing protests if the caretaker government resigns from its post and establishes an (unelected!) interim government to implement national reform, PDRC co-leader Thaworn Senneam said.
During the reclaim of the protesters' rally base on Ratchadamnoen Nok Avenue the police found ping-pong bombs, knives, slingshots, explosive devices and drugs and displayed the illegal items at a news conference.
Shortly afterward, wiseacre Suthep Thaugsuban and other PDRC co-leaders asserted that the seized weapons and drugs did not belong to PDRC members. They said that the area from the Suan Misakawan intersection to Makkhawan Rangsan Bridge was controlled by independent protest groups, not the PDRC or its allies.
We already know it: We not, but all the others...
Yesterday night Suthep Thaugsuban rejected any attempt to broker talks between him and the caretaker government. I would like to make it clear, there is nothing to negotiate. Our stance is clear. We will fight to the end. It's easy to end our protests, Yingluck Shinawatra, the prime minister just quits and the people's government and people's legislative council are established to push for the country's reform, the heavily indebted dictator said.
Suthep Thaugsuban, the subversive leader of the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) announced that he would mobilise supporters to block off Government House. We not let Prime Minister Yingluck in to work, the dictator said. Network of Students and People for Reform of Thailand (NSPRT) coordinator Uthai Yodmanee insisted that his group would not allow Ms Yingluck to return to work at Government House, saying the caretaker government had lost its authority to govern since it rejected the Constitution Court ruling against a proposed constitutional charter amendment that would change the composition of the Senate into a fully-elected chamber.
He warned that CMPO director Chalerm Yubamrung's attempt to reclaim the area around Government House would lead to a final showdown between the protesters and police.
Suthep Thaugsuban's People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) will form two fast-deployment teams to hound caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra and key members of the Centre for Maintaining Peace and Order, a PDRC leader said Sunday.
Subversive Suthep Thaugsuban is using rice farmers to block the Government House and to replace his crumbling base of protesters. His supporters even finance the farmers transports, foods and accommodations. Yingluck Shinawatra will have no chance to return to Government House in this life or the next, Suthep Thaugsuban proclaimed.
In the meantime Thailand's undemocratic Democrat Party tries to stop the financing and the payment of the rice farmers to stoke additional unrest in the country.
Suthep Thaugsuban's Idiots entered the Education Ministry premises and urged the officials there to stop work. It's the proof that Thailand's stupid Elite doesn't like educated people.
According to the police Suthep Thaugsuban's peace loving bodyguards are heavily armed. I wonder if they all have the required permits to wear the arms in the public...
The subversive anti-government protest leader announced he will lead a decisive battle against the caretaker government on Wednesday, February 19th, 2014. The Centre for Maintaining Peace and Order (CMPO) claims it will reopen Government House on the same day.
Ex-Democrat Thaworn Senneam said he will rally at the Interior Ministry to prevent any attempt by the CMPO to reclaim the rally site there.
Thai TV channels 11 and 9 will live broadcast the reclamation mission on February 19th. PDRC followers already sealed off the Government House by putting up concrete and sandbags in front of two gates of the seat of government. Labour Minister Chalerm Yoobamrung, the CMPO director, threatened to regain PDRC's rally sites and announced to strictly enforce the law against any illegal activities. Subversive leader Suthep Thaugsuban was disappointed that the PDRC's special event held over the long weekend only attracted about 10'000 people. On Sunday only 7'000 joined his rally.
Gunmen, apparently part of Suthep Thaugsuban's peace-loving People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC), attacked the Police when the Police started to arrest protesters. Three armed gunmen set free PDRC co-leader Somkiat Pongpaibul, who was among the arrested. Panthep Puapongpan, a People's Alliance for Democracy member, said the unidentified forces were protecting brothers and sisters. The liar said he don't know the snipers - but he announced that they will be back tomorrow. Probably the very same ominous Men in Black killing some Red Shirts during the Military's crackdown in 2010.
A policeman was shot in the head and 17 other policemen were injured by M79 grenades and bullets when they were using peaceful measures to retake a site occupied by Suthep Thaugsuban's so called peace-loving protesters.
The obviously paranoid PDRC leader challenged former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra to return home to command the police force in dispersing the protesters.
Suthep Thaugsuban announced that protesters from the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) would hound caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck wherever she goes. The obviously paranoid Suthep told his mob that we don't want Yingluck to use an office that was built with money from our taxes.
Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA), dominated by Thailand's Democrat Party, is supporting the gangsters. The BMA ordered its staff to take a day off on Wednesday in mourning for the five people killed during the police operation to reclaim Phan Fah Bridge.
Yesterday a policeman and 4 civilians died from bullets apparently fired by Suthep Thaugsuban's Popcorn snipers, the ominous and 'unknown' Men in Black.
Caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra told the people in a televised statement how Bangkok's powerful Elite is blocking the governments money. The banks owned by the Elite close the Government's source of capital, urged their members to withdraw all their money from the Government Savings Bank (GSB) and spraying rumours through their media that the GSB will run out of money. She also told the public that the protesters are the enemy of farmers, the country and democracy and the elected government.
But according Thailand's Democrat Party the widespread withdrawal of money at the Government Savings Bank (GSB) suggests people have lost confidence with the Pheu Thai-led government.
After the statement a member of the Academic Institute of Public Media, also directed by Bangkok's Elite, blamed the PM for her 'hate speech'. She caused a misunderstanding and stigmatized and slandered others, Suthep Thaugsuban's supporter said. He didn't elaborate on Suthep Thaugsuban's daily monologues and his lies.
Thailand's army cancelled the handover of four soldiers to police. They allegedly were involved in the shooting of red-shirt leader Kwanchai Praipana on January 22nd, 2014.
Army chief Gen Prayuth Chan-ocha has cancelled his inspection trip to the southern border provinces. He is closely monitoring the Centre for Maintaining Peace and Order (CMPO) operation to reclaim rally sites from the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC), he claims.
PDRC dictator Suthep Thaugsuban decided to dog caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra and the business firms related to the Shinawatra family.
He warned investors to withdraw their investments from those firms.
This very dangerous tactic must come from a distorted brain.
If his oppenents start boycotting businesses owned by Suthep Thaugsuban's supporters his tactic could backfire and paralyse Thailand's economy.
Immagine what will happen if all of Suthep Thaugsuban's opponents avoid buying at Thailand's Supercenters and 24-hours Minimarkets, if they stop drinking Thailand's Beers and Whisky, Thai made softdrinks, Coke and Fanta, or simply don't buy any Toyotas anymore.
The apparently sik Suthep Thaugsuban told the media again we will follow the Prime Minister wherever she is. I can confirm that Government House will not be opened for her to go inside.
The apparently paranoid men in Bangkok told his self declared peaceful demonstrators he invited red-shirts to come and eat some "popcorn" prepared by others. If I am killed, all the wealth of the Shinawatra family will be gone from this country, he claimed. The so-called "popcorn shooters" are a group of hooded gunmen allegedly hired to protecting Suthep Thaugsuban, his cronies and his anti-government protesters.
Bangkok's tyrant, a member of Thailand's Democrat Party, announced to render Shinawatra's businesses bankrupt. Their businesses defy the people's power, he said. The caretaker government could survive because of its money, therefore the PDRC would try to disrupt its financial sources, the heavily indebted PDRC leader claims.
According to the Elite controlled Bangkok Post and The Nation there are 10'000 Farmers on 1'000 tractors protesting against the Government's rice subsidy scheme. Reuters estimated the number of protesting Farmers at between 2'000 and 3'000 in a convoy of as many as 800 tractors..
Shortly after 12:00 the Farmers decided to end the protest and to return home.
A visitor of this page told us that he could see on TV wifes from Farmers in tears, telling the audience that they run out of money. How this Farmers can drive their (new) tractors from the North to Bangkok, how they pay the gasoline without having any money, he asked. The answer is very easy: Rawee Ruangruang, the chairman of the Network of Thai Farmers is also a member of the anti-government People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC). Perhaps he was piloting his Farmers to Bangkok only to welcome the few million Baht some people donated to Suthep Thaugsuban to 'help' the Farmers...
Suthep Thaugsuban and his movement are non democratic and violent but he is even proud of it. The red shirts should come to Bangkok because popcorn vendors have made popcorn for them, I don't know these popcorn vendors but I really love them, the PDRC leader said, referring to the gunmen at the clash between protestors and police on February 20th and between the red shirts and PDRC protesters before election day. Some anti-governmental gunmen covered their rifles with popcorn bags and fired and threw grenades to the police and the red-shirts. Some believe that the ominous Black Men even are responsible for the killing of red shirts during the political unrest in April and May 2010. Suthep Thaugsuban then give the order to the solders to remove the Red Shirts from thei protest site. The director of the Resolution of the Emergency Situation (CRES), the Department of Special Investigation, public prosecutors and police agreed to file murder charges against Suthep Thaugsuban.
Six members of noodle-selling family were injured and a five-year-old girl were killed in an attack at a noodle shop in Trat. The attack happened yesterday night. According to an uncle of the 5-year-old girl, the attack happened because they were selling noodle there.
According to Bangkok Post, The Nation and some other Thai Newspapers controlled by Bangkok's stubborn Elite it was an attack against the rally of the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC).
The PDRC already demanded the caretaker government to accept responsibility for the attack. This attack was carried out by people who disagree with the PDRC in what was clearly a well-organised strike using M16s and grenades, PDRC spokesman Akanat Promphan claims.
According to Rr Adm Winai Klom-in, commander of the Naval Special Warfare Command, or Navy SEALs the attack was the work of an armed foreign force which had sneaked into the country across the border. Who else would do things like this in this area? As I told you, foreign forces are brutal, the military man claims.
Why the PDRC and the media can't wait for the result of the investigation?
Suthep Thaugsuban told his supporters that the caretaker government is at a dead end. He hopes the political situation will be resolved by next week. The fight to expel the Pheu Thai-led administration had been successful over the past four months, he claims. He still believes that the majority of Thais now wanted to eradicate the Thaksin regime from the country. Dictators all over the world can't deal with the reality.
After yesterday's granade attack on a PDRC rally near Big C Supercentre on Ratchadamri Road, which killed 2 and injured 22 persons, clairvoyant Suthep Thaugsuban accused 'lackeys of the Thaksin regime' for the attacks on his 'peaceful' protesters.
In Switzerland we know that only stupid people are drawing conclusions before knowing the facts.
Laung Pu Buddha Issara, the monk that is also a leader of the unholy People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC), told Voice TV, an internet TV station that belongs to Thaksin Shinawatra's three children, it has a duty to uphold honest and factual reporting as a member of the media and should not be influenced by the politics of its management.
Perhaps the lovely monk can tell the same to Bangkok Post, The Nation and all the other Thai Newspapers and TV Stations owned by Bangkok's Elite to recapture his credibility.
Big mouth Suthep Thaugsuban told his people that with the exception of Rama IX Hospital and Thaksin's education businesses he would force all businesses owned by Thaksin Shinawatra and his family into bankruptcy.
In most democratic countries stalking is a criminal act, but obviously not in Thailand. Stalker Suthep Thaugsuban and his People's Democratic Reform Council (PDRC) can harass and intimidate almost all their opponents with impunity. Apparently Suthep's stalking is even supported by Thailand's media, Thailand's Criminal Court, Thailand's Election Commission (EC), Thailand's National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC), the Thai Health Network (THN), Thailand's Internal Security Operations Command (Isoc), Thailand's Banks as well as Thailand's Elite of course.
Thailand's Election Commission (EC), controlled by Bangkok's Elite, is refusing to do their job and hold an election.
Army Chief Gen Prayuth Chan-ocha urged the opponents to talk, but Suthep Thaugsuban said he will never negotiate with caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra and accused her of ordering her minions to murder children. He and his PDRC would continue fighting until the Thaksin regime is nowhere to be seen in the country, the cracker said.
Only a fool is putting mouth in gear before thinking.
The Internal Security Operations Command (Isoc), chaired by Army chief Prayuth Chan-ocha, asked provincial governors to restrict the movements of crowds as tensions in the capital escalate. He also ordered strict enforcement of the law in their provinces to deter further violence.
In Bangkok the Elite controlled Criminal Court is hindering strict enforcement of the law against Suthep Thaugsuban's protesters...
A mentally disordered Suthep Thaugsuban as well as Bankok Post still repeat that the dictator represents most of the people and that the people want Yingluck to leave because she has lost her mandate. Every election will proof the contrary. Therefore Suthep and his cronies from Bangkok's Elite and the Democrat Party don't want any election(s). Most of the people are paid to make her stay is their argument. If Suthep's supporters would had a brain it would tell them that's simply not possible with millions of voters.
Don't bring the notorious liar in a jail - bring him in a nuthouse.
Petty Officer 1st Class Sompong Tannark and Petty Officer 1st Class Preecha Moonpuak were arrested for carrying weapons at a police checkpoint on Bangkok's Taksin Road. Both are officers of the Naval Special Warfare Command, also known Navy SEALs. They worked as hired bodyguards for Suthep Thaugsuban's anti-government protesters. Police found in their posession two Glock 9mm pistols, five magazines, almost 40 9mm rounds and two People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) security guard cards.
Until today Thailand's top brass always denied that some of their soldiers are working as security guard for Suthep Thaugsuban.
During yesterday's evening hours anti-government protesters fired four M79 grenades at the Royal Thai Police Sports Club and the Thai PBS television station. M79 grenades are also used by Thailand's army.
Just another proof that only Thailand's Elite can trust Thailand's Army.
A group of about 20 People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) guards temporarily detained Deputy government spokeswoman Sunisa Lertpakawat. The 'guards' surrounded her, pulled her arm and hair, and took her to the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre near the Pathumwan rally site. They seized her mobile phone, forced her to give them the password to the device and made her tell them where she parked her car. They tried to cover her head with a black hood and take her to an unknown destination. A news photographer taking photos of the incident was threatened by the guards to delete the pictures.
Suthep Thaugsuban's guards feel to be above police and are always blocking police from entering rally sites, even during or after violence attacks.
Be warned: The undemocratic Democrat Party opened an 'headquarters' in Pattaya's Soi Town-in-Town Hotel.
Since many months Suthep Thaugsuban told his people and the nation that he never will speak to caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra. He accused her to be a puppet of her brother and claimed she masterminded the murder of children and protesters.
Yesterday the self-appointed leader of the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) told the press if Khun Yingluck really wants to find a solution through talks, I ask her to make an appointment for a one-on-one meeting with me in an open setting. The talks have to be broadcast live on all TV stations so that the people know what is going on.
This man is megalomaniac and should be arrested immediately.
Suthep Thaugsuban announced yesterday that the Bangkok Shutdown will be shut down this weekend. All of the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) rally stages will be dismantled and blocked roads cleared, he said, but added the fight to oust the Yingluck Shinawatra government is far from over.
As usual the sik guy told half the story only - or even less.
Fact is that he moves all his activities to Lumpini Park, but his cronies and ringleaders do not close their rally stages at Pathumwan, Asok, Silom, Ratchaprasong and Chaeng Watthana.
The PDRC would like to return traffic lanes to our Bangkok brothers and sisters, suck-up Suthep said.
He said nobody had forced the PDRC to dismantle the sites. It's just another lie. During the last few weeks he lost a lot of supporters and protesters and a lot of Bangkokians got crazy because of the daily demonstrations.
We decided to stop the Bangkok Shutdown but we will continue to close down government offices and businesses of the Shinawatra family. Our fight will be more intense. I'm determined to end this by March so we can start national reform, Bangkok's megalomaniac 'ruler' claims.
It is still unclear if Suthep Thaugsuban and his cronies say farewell to all their rally site or not. Luang Pu Buddha Issara, the misguided monk, claims that he don't will dismantle his anti-government protest stage at Chaeng Watthana.
Big mouth Suthep claims the Bangkok Shutdown campaign had served its purpose. It's now time for a new push to oust the stubborn caretaker government.
The megalomaniac 'ruler' still can't accept that he is the loser of the game, at least as long Thailand's army doesn't step in.
Suthep Thaugsuban claims that the United Nations (UN) do not understand Thailand. It seems that the sik man still believe that he represents Thailand. He is so stupid that he not even can accept that many of his supporters left his rallies because of the stupidity he told them almost daily. Only the people that try to regain the power over Thailand still stay with the dictator.
Most people in Thailand do not understand why Theiland's so called Elite can support this moocher. Does the Elite miss any education?
No Shutdown of Bangkok's Shutdown: Lumpini Park is the stalker's new operating base, despite complains from regular Lumpini Park visitors. Suthep Thaugsuban's occupation of the park has left little space for them to do their regular exercise. Moreover, the demonstrators behave improperly and disobey park rules. They smoke cigarettes, driving smoke emitting protest vehicles around the park and causing a lot of noise. Staff has to clean the park and collect garbage three to four times a day. The dictator doesn't care about people not supporting his strange ideas.
As mentioned above, Luang Pu Buddha Issara, the misguided monk, still occupies Chaeng Watthana with his fans.
The announced marches to overthrow caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra and the fight against businesses related to her family will block Bangkok's streets again, even if Suthep Thaugsuban and his thugs from PDRC moved from the Pathumwan, Ratchaprasong and Asok stages to Lumpini Park.
Luang Pu Buddha Issara, the misguided monk and a member of the obviously anti-democratic People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC), marched with his mob to the Office of the Auditor General of Thailand and the Office of the Attorney General and blocked Bangkok's streets again.
Thailand's Army shows its real face: The Army sends troops to protect protestors in Lumpini Park who calling for the overthrow of the elected government, but in 2010 the army attacked demonstrators calling for elections Lumpini Park with live ammunition.
The Thai Army has filed in the Chiang Mai and Phayao Army districts against people of a red shirt group called Sor Por Por Lanna.
Thai Army has filed a police complaint against Petcharawat Wattanapongsirikul, a core member of the Rak Chiang Mai 51 group.
The deputy chief of Muang district police, and the Phayao Army district, filed two separate complaints charging provincial red-shirts with instigating unrest.
The undemocratic Democrat Party, the puppet of Thailand's Army, is stepping up pressure on the caretaker government. It prepares fresh Constitution Court challenges against the administration.
Dr Rienthong Nanna, the director of Bangkok's Mongkutwattana General Hospital in Chaeng Watthana announced that he would give special privileges to friends and family members who share the same ideology as the PDRC and its allies.
If you do not support Thailand's anti-democratic forces we recommend to boycot this doctor and his hospital.
Users of Truemove services we recommend to move their phone services and numbers to AIS one-2-call. AIS is managed by a Singaporian company and doesn't have any connection with Suthep Thaugsuban, his anti-democratic People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) and Thailand's Democrat Party.
Luang Pu Buddha Issara, the misguided monk, says if defence permanent secretary Nipat Thonglek or Chalerm Yubamrung, chief of the Centre for Maintaining Peace and Order (CMPO), agree stay on the street with them for three nights he will move his PDRC mob out of Chaeng Wattana.
In civilized countries we call this blackmail.
Suthep Thaugsuban, the anti-government protest leader, employs 2'000 guards, some of them heavy armed retired and current Navy SEALs officers. There are now 3 (THREE!) arrest warants for the lying agitator, but nobody arrests him. It seems everybody fears the revenge of Thailand's Elite, its Military and Suthep's guards.
Anti-government demonstrators led by Nititorn Lamlua of the Network of Students and People for Reform of Thailand tried to remove the word "Thai" from the sign of Pheu Thai Party's Bangkok headquarters. They failed. The sign was too resilient.
In civilized countries we call this willful damage to property. In Thailand, it seems, you can do everything bad without get punished by the law - as long you have the support of Thailand's Elite.
Because of Suthep Thaugsuban's anti-democratic protests 20 people were killed and 728 injured in Bangkok and three had died and 43 been hurt in the provinces so far.
Japanese investors will likely move their investments from Thailand to other Asean members, vice-president of the Japanese Chamber of Commerce in Bangkok announced and added that the turmoil has prompted Japanese investors to look for alternative investment destinations such as Indonesia and the Philippines.
Thailand's Air Force Chief ACM Prajin Juntong demanded legal action against Pathum Thani red-shirt leader Wutthipong Kachathamkhun. Wutthipong, also known as Ko Tee, posted banners that are viewed by the military as promoting separatism.
The military never took legal action against the muslims down in the south who do the same thing on a regular basis, but the Royal Thai Navy brought two journalist to the court because they published an article entitled "Thai Military Profiting From Trade in Boatpeople".
The two journalists have played a central role over the past six years in exposing the exploitation and abuse of Rohingya detained along Thailand's Andaman coast.
Anti-government protest leader Issara Somchai is facing arrest for attempted murder.
The Chachoengsao Court approved an arrest warrant agains Mr Issara and five other people. Yuem Nillar, the victim, had been captured on February 24th and detained for five days by members of Suthep Thaugsuban's so-called 'peaceful' People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC).
He was beaten, tied up and finally thrown into the Bang Pakong River in Chachoengsao, allegedly masterminded by a leading member of the PDRC.
The victim is still at Bangkok's Police General Hospital for treatment.
Thailand's Democrat Party joined the military and has petitioned the national anti-graft agency to investigate the prime minister, two Cabinet ministers and 10 red-shirt leaders for rebellion over calls for a separate state in the North.
After Suthep Thaugsuban and his mob failed to bring the government down, Thailand's Elite now brings almost every statement and action of its opponents - even if its a joke - to a court.
Anti-government protest co-leader Issara Somchai, the alleged mastermind of an attempted murder case, announced to fight attempted murder charges after the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) ends its rally.
I do not turn himself in to police. Let me finish the rally first and then I will fight the case, Issara said. Speaking to the press, he denied all the accusations and said the case was politically motivated.
Issara Somchai has served as the Acting Minister of Social Development and Human Security of Thailand (!) during the military installed Abhisit cabinet.
Same soap opera procedure as with Suthep Thaugsuban?
Thailand's newspapers reported that former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra had approached the Democrat Party a nd its leader Abhisit Vejjajiva to seek a way out of the political crisis.
Mr Abhisit reportedly said Thaksin was concerned that the standoff between the People's Democratic Reform Committee and the government could be prolonged beyond the Songkran holiday.
Noppadon Pattama, Thaksin's legal adviser, informed the press that Thaksin Shinawatra never approached the Democrat Party to seek a way out of the political crisis.
It's just another lie of Abhisit Vejjajiva and his undemocratic Democrat Party, the masterminds behind Suthep and his mob.
When a taxi stopped at the Lumpini Park, now the stronghold of Suthep Thaugsuban's People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC), PDRC's security guards allegedly attacked the taxi, first by a giant firecracker, then with gunshots. The left side of the taxi was riddled with bullet holes, windows had been smashed and a front tyre as well as a rear tyre punctured.
Taxi driver sustained a graze on his forehead caused by a bullet. His passenger fled the scene.
As usual PRDC spokesman Akanat Promphan denied the allegation. According to him, the taxi was driving round the park before someone in the cab opened fire, prompting a return of gunfire. The PDRC did not know who returned fire...
In another case Police arrested a security guard of the Network of Students and People for the Reform of Thailand (NSPRT) for possessing a tear gas mask. He was charged with illegal possession of military hardware or war material.
According to NSPRT chief guard Nasser Yeehma the arrest was illegal. The Civil Court has banned police from seizing protesters' equipment, he said...
The (militant) Network of Students and People for the Reform of Thailand (NSPRT) includes deans of medical sciences faculties from nine universities, dentistry faculties from six universities, deans of 13 pharmaceutical sciences faculties and 24 public health associations nationwide.
Megalomaniac Suthep Thaugsuban still claims he represents the 'people'.
Police arrested two soldiers(!) in possession of two guns and a large amount of ammunition at a security checkpoint run by Metropolitan Police Division 5 near PDRC's Lumpini rally site. The arrested soldiers refused to give a statement. The said that they would wait for officers from the Judge Advocate General's Department.
Maj Gen Warah Boonysith, commander of the 1st Infantry Division, said it was still not clear whether the the soldiers were acting on their own or had been hired. According to Maj Gen Warah the seized weapons did not belong to the unit the two soldiers were assigned to...
Pol Maj Yuthana Praedam, an official from Thailand's Centre for Maintaining Peace and Order (CMPO), has filed a petition asking the Constitution Court to order Suthep Thaugsuban and his PDRC to end its unlawful protests.
The petition states that the PDRC's protests have not been peaceful and without weapons, as required by Section 63 of the constitution.
Suthep Thaugsuban's mob from the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) always accuse the Police of working to slow to find alleged attackers of the PDCR.
On the other hand PDRC's 'security forces' do everything to prevent Police to do their works.
When Police tried to investigate an alleged bomb attack at Lumpini Park the PDRC told the Police that the area was not ready for Police to enter.
It seems that Suthep Thaugsuban's People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) has something to hide. Obviously Suthep Thaugsuban and his PDRC don't want the Police pick out the real racketeers behind the alleged attacks...
Suthep Thaugsuban's People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) urged officials to stop working and leave their workplaces at the Commerce Ministry in a show of support for rice farmers.
The PDRC's 'peaceful'(!) Protesters later cut the electricity to the Ministry.
As a result of the illegal actions of the protestors, the ministry had to postpone its rice auctions until March 26th.
The shizophrenic PDRC and its supporters from Bangkok's Elite ask money for the rice farmers but in the same time they close all recources...
Luang Pu Buddha Issara, the misguided monk and a member of the anti-democratic People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC), got an 'invitation' from Yhailand;s Department of Special Investigation (DSI) to acknowledge an insurrection charge on March 14th. The lovely monk told his audience at his Chaeng Watthana rally site he would not go to the DSI. It says only that I have to go to the Narcotics Suppression Bureau, but I think it is inappropriate as it is concerned with drugs. The Constitution Court had ruled that the anti-government rallies were legitimate, so the summons issued by the DSI went against the court, he added.
As a member of the Elite sponsered protest mob he obviously feels above Thailand's law.
A research published by the World Bank in 2012 shows that Bangkok and the South of Thailand, both strongholds of the Democrat Party still get a lot more money from Thailand's Government than all the other parts of the country.
The accusations spread by Suthep Thaugsuban and his anti-democratic People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) that Yingluck's Government buys the votes of its supporters trough channelling the money into its populist projects is completely unfounded.
Thailand's Elite is spreading lies to Thailand's citizens!
Embattled Naval Special Warfare Command (SEAL) commander Rear Adm Winai Klom-in claims that if I am transferred to a position that does not require my abilities or puts me under [political] pressure, I might call it quits.
Rear Adm Winai Klom-in is in the spotlight following his frequent comments about anti-government rallies. It is assumed that he is taking sides with the anti-democratic People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC). Police arrested a few of his Seal and ex-Seal officers. They were mingling with the protesters.
The Network of Students and People for Reform of Thailand, a militant block within the PDRC and a direct beneficiary of Rear Adm Winai Klom-in manner, already marched to the navy headquarters in Thon Buri to give him moral support and protest against the estimated move.
Anti-democratic protest leader Suthep Thaugsuban says he has instructed more than 2'200 security guards at his Lumpini rally site. Stay disciplined and obey your superiors, he told them. He also repeated again that his People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) will soon emerge victorious in their fight against the caretaker government.
Be aware: Thanat Thanakitamnuay, the son of Kitti Thanakitamnuay, chief executive of property developer Noble Development, is an active whistle-blower leader within Suthep Thaugsuban's People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC).
For known supporters of Suthep Thaugsuban's anti-democratic PDRC please click here.
Suthep Thaugsuban, the self-proclaimed secretary-general of the anti-government People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC), told his people today it might take us a month or two to win. If not, we'll carry on protesting. In the end, the Thaksin regime must be eradicated, there's no other choice. If a neutral government is set up, no political parties, including the Democrat Party, will be involved. It will comprise only neutral individuals who have no mutual interests in any political party. Pheu Thai will still win if a new election is organised under the old regulations and it won't implement the reforms.
As expected, Suthep Thaugsuban rejects the mediation proposals by six independent organisations. Obviously the megalomaniac secretary-general of the anti-government People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) speaks with himself only...
The last three-digits of March 16th's first prize lottery number 531404 match the 5404 licence plate number of the Volkswagen mini-van Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra used in Chiang Mai last weekend.
The lottery's winning two-digit number on Sunday was 79. It also matches the last two digits of her Toyota Alphard's licence plate with the number 7879.
Suthep Thaugsuban's anti-government groups were suspicious of the lottery results. They claim the Government Lottery Office (GLO) might have fixed the draw to make it appear the Prime Minister was bringing good luck to low-income lottery buyers.
There seems to be no substitution for Suthep's stupidity.
The Department of Special Investigation (DSI), Thailand's FBI, announced that Thonburi Criminal Court approved a warrant for the arrest Chumpol Julasai, a core leader of Suthep Thaugsuban's People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC).
Maj Gen Warah Boonyasit, commander of the army's 1st Infantry Division, said the 176 military checkpoints set up in areas previously covered by the special security law would remain unchanged, despite the emergency decree being lifted and replaced by the Internal Security Act (ISA).
Thailand's Police today arrested Vivat Yodprasert, a 24-year-old Phitsanulok native nicknamed the popcorn gunman, in the southern province of Surat Thani - hometown of Suthep Thaugsuban. He was hiding in a house owned by the wife of a PDRC security guard leader. Police sought him in connection with a shooting at Laksi intersection on the eve of the February 2nd general election. The suspect denies all charges.
Vivat Yodprasert, the 24-year-old popcorn gunman, admitted to police that he was one of the gunmen at the Laksi intersection. He was paid 300 Baht a day to provide security for Suthep Thaugsuban's anti-government protesters from the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC).
The gun that he used at the Laksi shooting was an M16 and he got it from another PDRC guard at Luang Pu Buddha Issara's Chaeng Watthana rally site. The popcorn bag was used to conceal the M16 and to collect spent bullet shells.
He shot about 20 rounds and returned the gun to one of the PDRC guards.
It shows again that Suthep Thaugsuban is Thailand's biggest liar. He told the press all the time that his guards and the PDRC are peaceful and non-violent people. Suthep Thaugsuban's organisation even provides the weapons to kill his opponents. Arrest Suthep Thaugsuban and his obviously criminal organisation now!
Suthep Thaugsuban, the alleged murderer, said that he and his obviously criminal organisation, the anti-democratic People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC), will not allow a new election to be held.
Suthep Thaugsuban's allies controlled by Bangkok's Elite, the so-called Democrat Party, announced that they may boycott a fresh election. The party is not worried it might face dissolution if it steers clear of an election for a second time. The Democrats insist a general election should not happen until after national reform is implemented, meaning that Thailand will be governed by an unelected Government, headed by members selected by an alleged criminal known as Suthep Thaugsuban and his suporters from Bangkok's Elite.
Thailand's Constitutional Court nullified the February 2nd election.
The Constitutional Court (CC) as well as the Election Commision (EC) (and their members) are 'independent institutions' inaugurated by Thailand's military and the Democrat Party after the last military coup to conserve the power of Bangkok's Elite and are anything else than independent. The EC, the NHRC, the NACC, the CC and the appointed Senators - to name a few only - all these bodies were filled by the 2006 coup junta with, good in the eyes of Thailand's Military and Bangkok's Elite.
Independent law academic Verapat Pariyawong claims the Constitutional Court (CC) has ruled in a way that is against the constitution - both in terms of the content and the process.
Election Commission (EC) chairman Supachai Somcharoen, allegedly one of Suthep Thaugsuban's powerful canvassers, said he expected it would be at least three more months before a new election could be held.
Thailand's Constitutional Court (CC) obviously forget that Suthep Thaugsuban and his anti-democratic People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) as well as Thailand's undemocratic Democrat Party did everything to derail the election.
Suthep Thaugsuban's anti-government People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) already threatened to disrupt a new election unless there is national reform before the poll. The best way out is for Yingluck Shinawatra to resign as prime minister, to pave the way for a non-elected or neutral person to head the government and take care of the election, people from Suthep's PDRC claim.
No matter how Thailand's citizens vote, the power is and remains in the hands of Bangkok's Elite - Thailand's unholy Mafia.
Democracy Monument
A Black Day for Thailand's Democracy
Bangkok's Elite, Thailand's Military, the EC (Election Commission), the NHRC (National Human Rights Commission), the NACC (National Anti-Corruption Commission), the CC (Constitutional Court), the Democrat Party, the PDRC (People's Democratic Reform Committee), its self-appointed secretary-general Suthep Thaugsuban and the Elite appointed Senators are trampling Thailand's Democracy under foot.
Laung Pu Buddha Issara, the misguided monk that is also a leader of the unholy People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC), dumped 100 tonnes of unmilled rice outside Government Lottery Office (GLO) headquarters and his stupid supporters applauded. Only fools never heard of the millions of hungry people in our world.
Suthep Thaugsuban announced a new rally of his People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) on March 29th, 2014.
In his matchless style he told his fans that it will be the biggest ever rally. He also said that it is the best time for us to come out and tell the public that we don't want an election, we want a reform.
It seems his sponsors opened their pockets again.
Suthep Thaugsuban and his People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) are on the walk again. They announced to march through Bangkok's street to mobilise their supporters for Suthep's planned 'biggest ever rally' on March 29th. About 2'000 PDRC guards are 'protecting' the anti-democratic protesters.
It is assumed that the Democrat Party's dictator will paralyse Bangkok's street during whole the week with his 'invitation marches' and that nobody will arrest him - despite the three arrest warrants. With the support of Bangkok's Elite he is still above Thailand's miraculous laws.
Abhisit Vejjajiva, the Democrat Party leader and a puppet of Thailand's military and Bangkok's Elite, said that his Democrat Party will not contest a general election as long as rules governing the country remain unacceptable to the public, adding that a reform is necessary before a new poll is organised.
As Suthep Thaugsuban, this stupid man forget too that he can not force reforms without holding an election first. It's a fact that the Democrats won't run because they can't win a free and fair election.
Once again Bangkok Post publishes a NIDA poll. It says that a majority of people (allegedly) are of the opinion that reforms should be made before the next election.
NIDA (National Institute for Development Administration) is known as a supporter of Suthep Thaugsuban's People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC). The 'independed' organisation even run its very owen tent at Suthep's now defunct Victory Monument rally site.
Abhisit Vejjajiva, the puppet of Bangkok's Elite, 'toppled'. He slipped and fell on Wednesday morning at his house on Soi Sukhumvit 31. He broke his right collarbone and was rushed to the Ramathibodi Hospital.
The statement doesn't say if somebody else was involved in the incident, but fact is that the puppet will be replaced by one of his deputies for the Democrat Party's annual assembly meeting scheduled for March 28th and 29th.
In an attempt to weaken Thailand's Caretacker Government appointed (but not elected) Senator Air Chief Marshal Veeravit Kongsak, chairman of the Committee on Corruption and Promotion of Good Governance(!), has endorsed an urgent request to EC chairman Supachai Somcharoen to consider suspending the use of 2.3 billion Baht in funds by the CAPO.
The army announced to take no action against a red-shirt faction which demolished a bunker at the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC). The army opted to retreat instead of taking action to avoid a confrontation with the People's Radio for Democracy Group, a faction of the United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship.
The radio group removed a military bunker built in a Soi behind the NACC office. It met no resistance from soldiers who packed their equipment onto a truck and returned to their unit.
Suthep Thaugsuban, self-declaimed secretary-general of the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC), and Luang Pu Buddha Isara, the misled monk and the core leader at the Chaeng Wattana rally site, are on the march through Bangkok's streets.
The march s under strict security. The PDRC ordered 2'000 of its heavy armed guards to secure the leaders und their followers.
For both of this subversive 'leaders' exist arrest warrants...
Luang Pu Buddha Isara, the misled monk, headed his anti-government demonstrators from the PDRC to the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) office and demolished a pro-government protest site occupied by the People's Radio for Democracy Group (PRDG).
The anti-government protesters used tractors to knock down tents and barriers at the PRDG site.
Buddhism at its best...? Why Luang Pu Buddha Isara don't get defrocked? Is Bangkok's Elite controlling Buddhism too?
Protesters from the Network of Students and People for the Reform of Thailand (NSPRT), a very militant part of Suthep's PDRC, entered the Government House. They called on police and soldiers not to obstruct them.
Shyster Suthep Thaugsuban announced that he will not allow Parliament to be reopened before comprehensive reforms.
It seems that thugs are still above Thailand's law(s).
Yesterday Suthep Thaugsuban led another of his 'biggest ever demonstration' along Bangkok streets. According to some Elite controlled newspapers the streets were 'jammed with tens of thousands of PDRC protesters'.
Leaders of the Students and People Network for Reforming Thailand (NRT) held its own ceremony at Government House to thwart black magic (!) aimed at them.
The superstitious students (?) raised a brand new Thai national flag and placed three Buddha statues to destroy the black magic the caretaker government of Yingluck Shinawatra allegedly conjured against the network...
Some observers are warning that the next seven days could be dangerous. Suthep Thaugsuban and his People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) are allegedly preparing a violent clash to set the stage for a military coup. It seems that thugs are still above Thailand's law(s).
Yesterday Thailand had the chance to vote its Senators. We got no reports of trouble or attempts to block voters from entering polling stations. Nevertheless, the voting isn't really democratic. Half of the seats in the Senat goes to appointed people only. Appointed by Bangkok's Elite and its Military. It's dictated in Thailand's controversial Constitution.
The official results of the Senate poll are expected to be announced by the Election Commission (EC) in seven days - if there are no complaints filed.
It shows again that Thailand isn't a Democracy but (some kind of) a Constitutional Monarchy.
Suthep Thaugsuban, Thailand's most stupid, but snooty walker is congesting Bangkok's Street again with his People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) and his heavy armed personal guards.
Army Chief General Prayuth Chan-ocha is ruling out a military coup, but Royal Thai Air force Commander-in-Chief ACM Prajin Juntong claims that the military does not rule out staging a coup because it does not know if the political crisis facing the country will end peacefully. The military has to monitor the present political situation and evaluate, he said.
The quintessence: Never trust the military.
If needed, Thailand's army is deploying 58 companies of troops to counter protest threats in coming days, Maj Gen Apirat Kongsompong, newly appointed commander of the 1st Division, King's Guard, said
Maj Gen Apirat has come under close scrutiny because of his role in the military crackdowns in 2010.
He also said that lese majeste offences would not be tolerated under his watch. He added that a campaign to undermine the monarchy has been under way for a long time.
Japan's Credit Rating Agency JCR has downgraded Thailand's credit outlook from "stable" to "negative".
As usually if Suthep Thaugsuban anti-democratic supporters run out of arguments they start spreading fake rumours in the media.
Latest rumour says that the Red Shirts will swell the numbers of demonstraters with (payed) no immigrant workers, or Cambodians.
Thailand's Elite is launching every lie in their media to badmouth its opponents.
The petition lodged with the Constitutional Court to disqualify Thailand's Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra is politically motivated and part of moves by Bangkok's Elite and its lawers to replace her and her government with an unelected and unconstitutional one. It's unlawful. It's as ridiculous as the order of Thailand's Criminal Court to withdraw the arrest warrants for 18 leaders of the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) and Network of Students and People for the Reform of Thailand (NSPRT), including Suthep Thaugsuban, for violating the emergency decree.
The 18 leaders violated the emergency decree while it was in force - not afterwards.
Amazing judicature...
Yesterday Suthep Thaugsuban, Bangkok's great Dictator, said: The People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) is ready to step in as soon as the judicial axe falls on the current cabinet. Once we become the sovereign, we'll seize the assets of the Shinawatra family members. We won't allow them to go abroad. They will need to report to us. We will appoint the prime minister of the people and submit the name to His Majesty, to be countersigned by me.
He stays above all other people. He is the sovereign. Without his signature nothing will happen in this country. He is Thailand. He's a megalomaniac.
Just after announcing his final battle against the caretaker government and the Shinawatra family, Suthep Thaugsuban, the self-appointed head of Thailand, said he and his (anti-democratic) PDRC agreed to re-open all government offices with the exception of Government House and the Interior Ministry on April 8th, 2014.
However, the officials may not take orders from Yingluck and the government. They can only serve people and they must allow us to put up signs on the gates saying they would cooperate with the PDRC's reforms. They also need to take good care of these signs. If they are torn or blown away, they will have to fix them or we will close their offices again, Suthep proclaimed.
We left out the Government House and the Interior Ministry because this offices do not serve people but rather Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra, the megalomaniac claimed.
In the meantime guards of the Network of Students and People for the Reform of Thailand (NSPRT), the militant arm of Suthep Thaugsuban's 'peace-loving' and 'unarmed' (approved by Thailand's 'impartial' Criminal Court...) People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC), shot and wounded two soldiers on patrol duty. They were admitted to Ramathibodi Hospital.
As expected, Suthep's brothers deny any wrongdoing, and as usual where Suthep's cronies are activ all the security cameras are inactive: Out of order...
Abhisit Vejjajiva, the Elite supported former Prime Minister, Democrat Party leader and Jester of the Nation let the Democrat secretary-general Juti Krairiksh say that the Democrat Party will take part in a general election only if it is fair and candidates from parties other than Pheu Thai can campaign for votes unhindered.
It seems the Jester and his Allies already forget that it was the Democrat Party that not only boycotted the February 2nd election but also hindered the voters to get their ballots.
EC secretary-general Puchong Nutrawong told the press the EC (Election Commission), the armed forces and 12 security agencies d agreed it would be impossible to hold a peaceful new general election in the next 45 to 60 days.
Thailand's Election Commission is a so called 'independed organisation', also known as 'independed agency', promoting and executing the ideas of Bangkok's Elite.
Self-appointed PDRC leader Suthep Thaugsuban ordered his People's Democratic Reform Committee protesters to remain in their positions but not make any movements from April 12th-15th for the Songkran celebrations.
The Senate's NACC Selection Committee voted to nominate Deputy Permanent Secretary for Finance Supha Piyachit as a new member of the National Anti-Corruption Commission. She is a known anti-government whistle blower.
Prepare for the worst - after Songkran - as an obviously mentally ill Suthep Thaugsuban already declared ownership of sovereign power to do what the 'people' wanted him to do. It's time that Democrat party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva and all his Democrats should now turn to democratic system and stop advocating the PDRC leader.
Officials from Thailand's Public Health Ministry left their desks to greet Suthep Thaugsuban and his People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC). With their action they were defying an order of the caretaker government not to show support for the anti-government movement during working hours - and wasted the taxpayers money again.
Nevertheless, it's no surprise: The Public Health Ministry is known as Thailand's most corrupt Ministry and Suthep Thaugsuban is one of Thailand's most corrupt politician. Working together they can rob Thai people's very last Baht.
Thailand's Election Commission (EC), a 'independed agency', is supporting the anti-government protesters again and tentatively approved Khunying Jaruvan Maintaka as Bangkok senator, despite there are three petitions against her endorsement.
Because EC's investigation is unlikely to be finished by April 29, the deadline for the consideration, the EC will tentatively endorse her after which it will have one year to consider the complaints and remove her later if the charges have grounds. In the meantime the nepotistic lady can support Suthep Thaugsuban's PDRC.
The selection method for Bangkok EC, a stronghold of the undemocratic Democrat Party, differs from what is used in other provinces...
The Joke of the Day:
Democrat Party spokesman Chavanond Intarakomalyasut told the press today that former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra should respect all laws and not just the ones that would benefit him.
It's Thailand's Democrat Party, its former MPs, including Suthep Thaugsuban, and its demonstrators from the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) that are trampling down law and order since more than six months.
Instead of telling lies about Thaksin Shinawatra and his family, the Democrats should stop Thailand's one and only troublemaker Suthep Thaugsuban.
Democrat Party spokesman Chavanond Intarakomalyasut claims that red-shirt leader Wuthipong Kotthammakhun, who faces an arrest warrant for alleged lese majeste, is believed to be hiding under the protection of an influential figure in the Northeast.
It's time police prove that they are law enforcers and not servants of politicians, Chavanond Intarakomalyasut says.
He forget to mention that Suthep Thaugsuban and a few other members of his undemocratic Democrat Party are still at large, despite a few arrest warrants. Who is protecting this troublemakers?
The Network of Students and People for Reform of Thailand (NSPRT), the militant arm of Suthep Thaugsuban's People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC), announced that it will accelerate its campaign against the caretaker government and to unseat caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra and her cabinet by the end of this month.
The campaign will run in parallel with another rally by the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC), Network leader Uthai Yodmanee said.
Somchai Srisuthiyakor, the controversial election commissioner, announced that a new general election would likely be held on July 20th or July 27th and a new government set up by October,2014.
Suthep Thaugsuban told his supporters he believed the PDRC would "receive victory" by the end of this month.
The charges against Thailand's Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra are uniformly recognize as bogus charges brought by bodies that are neither independant nor impartial.
Thailand's Government Centre for the Administration of Peace and Order (CAPO) asked the Constitutional Court (CC) and the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) not to exceed their authority in cases against Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra. Double standards against the prime minister could lead to violence. NACC and CC are so called independent agencies headed by Bangkok's Elite.
Public Health Ministry permanent secretary Dr Narong Sahametapat decided not to attend the Centre for the Administration of Peace and Order (CAPO) meeting. He is very known as a supporter of Suthep Thaugsuban. The Public Health Ministry is also known as Thailand's most corrupt Ministry. Suthep Thaugsuban, the corrupt troublemaker, is urging all officials to join him in civil disobedience against the government.
Naval Special Warfare (Seal) commander Thani Phutphat has warned his subordinates not to take part in political movements and to retain their political neutrality. The arrests of several active and former Seal officers at People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) events has raised public concern over the role of Seals nationwide.
In the meantime Suthep Thaugsuban and his anti-government protesters visited the Government Pharmaceutical Organisation (GPO) and invited its state-enterprise officials to join the PDRC's campaign to oust the Thaksin regime.
On their walk to state enterprises Suthep Thaugsuban and his anti-government protesters from the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) paid a visit to the Metropolitan Waterworks Authority (MWA).
According to the Elite's media reports the state-enterprise gave Suthep's mob a warm welcome.
The staff's behavior shows the MWA's working morale: Obviously they are used to waste the taxpayer's money and are supporting one of Thailand's most corrupt politician.
Suthep Thaugsuban and his privat army, the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC), are out in full force today. The self-appointed knight in shining armour is inviting Bangkok's people to join his campaign for the ousting of the so-called Thaksin regime. Ignoring all arrest warrants he shows the nation that his above any Thai law. Obviously he still enjoys the full support of Thailand's so called independent agencies, the the Constitutional Court (CC), the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) and the Election Commission (EC).
The Constitutional Court (CC) was set up by the Council for National Security (CNS). The CNS staged the September 19th, 2006 coup which ousted the Thaksin government. If the court was set up by the people it would work for the people and not for the CNS and Bangkok's undemocratic Elite.
Nidhi Eoseewong, a prominent intellectual, claims that a new election is a way to bring Thailand out of a political turmoil.
Talks between People's Democratic Reform for Democracy (PDRC) self appointed secretary-general Suthep Thaugsuban and caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra were unlikely to help settle their differences.
Nidhi Eoseewong disagreed with calls to appoint a so-called neutral prime minister in the event that Ms Yingluck and her cabinet are ordered to leave their posts by the Constitutional Court.
A new poll must be held as soon as possible, Mr Nidhi added. But that's just what the (undemocratic) Democrat Party, Suthep Thaugsuban and his People's Democratic Reform for Democracy (PDRC) fear like the pestilence: The Democrat never won an election. They came to power only with the help of military coups. This time they try to regain power with a juridical coup. It's oblique too...
Luang Pu Buddha Issara, the missguided monk and a People's Democratic Reform Committee leader, accused several pro-government radio stations of lese majeste. He demanded the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission to take them off the air.
Luang Pu Buddha Isara's security guards detained three plainclothed police officers. According to the guards they fired shots at the rally site at Chaeng Wattana.
Suthep Thaugsuban directed his People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) to the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (Egat). According to Elite controlled media reports Suthep was greeted by Egat deputy governor Thana Putharangsi and other executives. Egat staff gave flowers to the protesters.
A meeting between the Election Commission (EC) and 54 political parties began without Democrat Party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva. He wrote on his Facebook page that he was unable to attend the meeting with the Election Commission (EC) due to safety concerns. According to Party spokesman Chavanond Intarakomalyasut the party had received information that there was a plot to create chaos at the meeting with Abhisit Vejjajiva the target. About an hour later Luang Pu Buddha Issara, the missguidee monk, demanded the EC to put up a poster in the meeting room. It says: Thais won't go to the polls until reform takes place.
It's nothing than a filibuster: The Democrat Party don't want an election. They fear the result...
After yesterdays meeting the Election Commission (EC) said it is not against the idea of holding the next poll before July 20, but the next general election must not lead to casualties and deaths.
EC member Somchai Srisuthiyakorn previously had claimed polls were impossible before July 20, while Pheu Thai, the Prime Ministers Party, has stated polls must be held by June 15 for legal reasons.
Chavanond Intarakomalyasut said that based on his party's intelligence, there was a plot to create chaos at the meeting. Therefore Democrat Party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva made a last-minute decision not to attend the EC's meeting on safety concerns.
That was the greatest joke the party ever told: The Democrat Party does not have an intelligence.
Look at Abhisit Vejjajiva and Suthep Thaugsuban and you will see that the Democrat Party not even has intelligent members.
Kamon Duangpasuk, known as Mainueng Kor Kuntee and a redshirt poet writing for Matichon Weekly and other magazines for several years, was gunned down in broad daylight today at a restaurant in Lat Phrao district. He was a native of Samut Songkhram province and a graduate of Silpakorn University.
Yesterday, two gunmen on a motorcylce shot at the Ruan Thai Radio FM 105.25 MHz station, a community radio station allied with the red-shirt United Front for Democracy Against Dictatorship. Police found 23 9mm casings at the scene, but no one was hurt.
Suthep Thaugsuban, Thailand's Master of Corruption, invited the staff of the Provincial Electricity Authority (PEA) to join his heavily armed People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC).
According to reports in Thailand's Elite controlled media Suthep's protesters were warmly welcomed by Pea's staff. Suthep Thaugsuban, Witthaya Kaewparadai, Chumpol Julasai, Sathit Wongnongtoey and Akanat Promphan as well as Komsan Thongsiri, chairman of the State Enterprises Labour Relations Confederation (SERC) were greeted with flowers and cash donations.
If you ever built a house or a factory in this country you know the (corrupt) people from the PEA.
Abhisit Vejjajiva, the pretentious leader of the Democrat Party, announced a bid to find a solution to the political unrest organized by Suthep Thaugsuban, his PDRC and the Democrat Party.
According to Abhisit Vejjajiva, Thailand's Master of Distortion, the high cost of living, failure to pay farmers in the rice-pledging scheme and corruption were bringing the country down.
Suthep Thaugsuban claimed his final battle could take three days to a week to topple caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra. There are several special operations along with the rally, he said.
Suthep Thaugsuban: I do not talk to anybody. I only listen to the great masses of the people who are calling for national reforms before the next election Thailand's megalomaniacal dictator told the press.
Suthep Thaugsuban's People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) visited Thai Airways' headquarters at Vibhavadi Road. The airline's acting director Chockchai Panyayong, other THAI executives and the carrier's labour union chief Damrong Waikani greeted Suthep and and his mob. According to the Elite's media they received not only a warm welcome from most of the national flag carrier's staff but also black T-shirts and purple scarves as gifts...
Just another reason to ignore Thai Airways International.
After local leaders yesterday demanded the end of the political protest at the Interior Ministry, Chiefs from Thailand's villages and tambons announced a demonstration on Monday, April 28th. Around 50'000 village and tambon chiefs were willing to join the protest, the Association of Village and Tambon Chiefs of Thailand said.
The long occupation of the ministry by anti-government protesters under the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) has caused difficulties for the public seeking services and problems in assisting the public in circumstances such as drought or other natural disasters, the Association claims.
Yesterday morning a senior military officer attached to the Supreme Command was injured in an attack by Suthep Thaugsuban's 'peace-loving and unarmed' anti-government protest guards on Chaeng Watthana Road, the area controlled by Suthep's misguided monk Luang Pu Buddha Isara.
According to Mongkutwattana General Hospital Col Witthawat Wattanakul, a deputy director for the International Relations division under the Directorate of Joint Intelligence, was admitted to the hospital with facial bruising and bullet fragment wounds to the feet.
Immigration Police at the Suvarnabhumi International Airport have arrested Sakoltee Phattiyakul, a leader of the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC), on charges of intrusions into government's offices. He just returned from a trip to the United States. But a few hours later the Criminal Court granted a 600'000-Baht bail to the PDRC 37-year old leader. The question remains unanswered why he was not detained at the airport when he attempted to depart the country on April 16th, 2014. His arrest warrant was issued by the Pak Kret police station on March 25th. His case was forwarded to the DSI on April 9th. It seems that PDRC's leaders are still excluded from Thailand's laws.
Suthep Thaugsuban's anti-government protesters will move from Lumpini Park back to the Democracy Monument to make a final push for an appointed prime minister and reform, a source close to the megalomaniac claims - and to bring another chaos to the capital.
Thailand's Privy Council president has agreed to a proposal by the Man of State group to seek His Majesty the King's assistance to help end the political crisis and allow the country to move forward. The Man of State group consists mainly of retired high-ranking military commanders, government officials and academics. General Prem Tinsulanonda, the chief royal adviser, would submit to the King an appeal by the group for a royal command to solve the ongoing crisis. The bid to restore peace in the country is in line with the Constitution, the group claims.
In the meantime Suthep Thaugsuban, the megalomaniac, is walking with his mob to The Mall department store at Bang Khae to invite people to join the PDRD's last major rally against his hated Thaksin regime.
This afternoon Suthep Thaugsuban will proudly mark the PDRC's 180 days of anti-government protests at Lumpini Park.
Let's hope there will be a doctor checking Suthep Thaugsuban's mental state - important for the approaching trials: Only an insane Suthep Thaugsuban can escape a jail verdict.
Self-proclamed secretary-general Suthep Thaugsuban and his supporters of the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) got a warm welcome from the staff of the Thailand Tobacco Monopoly, Elite controlled media report. The march caused heavy traffic congestion on Rama 4 road, but this doesn't care Mr. Megalomaniac.
Lt Gen Pissanu Putthawong, a close aid to Privy Council president Prem Tinsulanonda, claims that General Prem only listened to a proposal to end the political turmoil by a group calling itself Rattha Bukkhon (State Citizens), also dubbed as the Man of State group, but did not agree with nor commit to any of their suggestions. It seems that the small group of retired Generals made a big decision on behalf of the entire country without the people's consent - same procedure as Bangkok's Dictator Suthep Thaugsuban. They tried to run a show and failed. Nevertheless, the stupid Generals still think an uniform and gun make them wise and give them respect from the people.
Thailand's Cabinet extended the enforcement of the Internal Security Act, known as ISA, in Bangkok and nearby provinces by 61 days until June 30th, 2014.
Abhisit Vejjajiva, the chameleon among Thailand's politicians, is supporting Suthep Thaugsuban again and proposes to delay polls. He tells the Election Commission (EC) that a quick poll would only exacerbate the political turmoil, not end it.
Abhisit Vejjajiva's Democrats boycotted the February 2nd general election, Suthep Thaugsuban blocked the registration of constituency MP candidates for the February 2nd election, the distribution of the ballots and the polling stations.
The Election Commission (EC) welcomed Democrat party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva's eight-point proposal to reform the electoral process before hold an election, but didn't elaborate on the eight points. They remain in the dark....
Narong Sahametapat, permanent secretary for public health, Kittipong Kittayarak, permanent secretary for justice, and Thawil Pliensri, National Security Council (NSC) secretary-general, decided not to attend an out of a scheduled meeting of all permanent secretaries and top officials of state agencies with caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra.
The three officials are known supporters of Suthep Thaugsuban and his mob from the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC).
Thawil Pliensri had to be reinstated as NSC chief after an order of a court. He already announced that he will not report to Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra.
Suthep Thaugsuban and his 'peace-loving' PDRC visited their friends at the ToT (Telephone Organization of Thailand) head office, the Thailand Post Company and CAT Telecom Plc to urge the workers of the state enterprises to join the PDRC's planned major anti-government rally.
The Election Commission (EC) announced that Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra's caretaker Government agreed to set July 20th, 2014, as the date for the new election. Suthep's supporters already announced in their comments that they not will let happen the new election...
Suthep Thaugsuban, the loser, has set May 14th as the date to launch another final all-out battle against the elected government. It will be a major operation to take back sovereign power. This fight will last about two to five days but we will do it decisively, the dictator promised.
He also announced two major rallies on Coronation Day, Monday May 5th, and Visakha Bucha Day, Tuesday May 13th and urged his supporters to wear yellow and gather at Sanam Luang before 17:00 to express loyalty and offer blessings to His Majesty the King of Thailand.
Democrat Party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva has asked the caretaker government to resign, paving the way for a neutral government to be appointed by the Senate.
Once the neutral government is in place, the Reform Now Network will join hands with the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) to set the reforms framework within 15-30 days and allow people to participate in the process, the self-appointed puppet of Suthep Thaugsuban said.
In response to this proposals on political solutions, independent legal academic Verapat Pariyawong said the proposals were unconstitutional.
It shows that the dictator's new puppet not even knows Thailand's constitution...
The dictator himself yesterday visited his friends and supporters at the Boon Rawd Brewery (the Singha Beer producer), the Bank of Thailand and the Wat Tri Thotsathep, a nearby temple. He encouraged people to join him and his heavy armed group(s) in the planned religious and prayer ceremonies on May 5th and 13th, and his (final?) mass rally on May 14th.
Neverthaless, Suthep Thaugsuban and his People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) rejected Abhisit Vejjajiva's reform proposals. The interim administration should not be appointed by the Senate, the dictator says. PDRC leader Suthep Thaugsuban intends to seize power in the name of his so called the people. He would then propose the name of a reform prime minister to His Majesty the King and countersign the appointment.
Suthep the Great repeated that he is not interested in any talk with Mr Abhisit - or anybody else. Obviously Suthep Thaugsuban likes to talk with Suthep Thaugsuban only and his microphones...
Suthep Thaugsuban's anti-government demonstrators have decided to end their occupation of the Interior Ministry. The loser said that all those occupying the ministry would relocate to the main base at Lumpini Park on Saturday night so that authorities could retake the complex.
Suthep Thaugsuban's decision came as representatives of 80'000 kamnan and village chiefs from across the country announced plans for a rally at the ministry in Bangkok on May 4th to demand an end to the seizure. Suthep's militant Network of Students and People for Reform of Thailand first occupied the compound on Nov 25. The unlawful blockade had disrupted ministerial officials from working.
The perverse liar explained that the withdrawal was a tactical change. He dismissed claims that it was prompted by the planned rally.
According to The Nation Suthep Thaugsuban's anti-government People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC), which managed to derail the previous election in February, has vowed to block the July 20th poll as well.
It's time to arrest whole the bunch, including Suthep Thaugsuban and Laung Pu Buddha Issara, the monk. They already rattened a Royal Decree by derailing the February 2nd election.
Kasian Tejapira, a professor of political science at Thammasat University, says the proposals to allow the Senate to elect an interim premier and a cabinet on the basis of Article 7 of the Constitution is a violation of the letters and spirit of the constitution and of democratic principles. They are based on a PDRC mob-engineered political crisis and power vacuum as a result of their illegal obstruction of the general election on February 2nd, 2014.
Sukhum Nuansakul, a political analyst and former rector of Ramkhamhaeng University, says the proposals for reform before elections, and/or a neutral premiership, are just a step aside from the current constitutional track for one single reason only: To kick out Thaksin Shinawatra and his sister Yingluck.
Zakariya Amataya says Suthep Thaugsuban and Abhisit Vejjajiva proposals are just distortions of rules and regulations for fear of losing in the changing political landscape.
Thailand's juridical coup:
Thailand's Constitutional Court ruled that Deputy Prime Minister Pracha Promnog, Labour Minister Chalerm Yoobamrung, Deputy Prime Minister Plodprasop Suraswadi, Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Kittiratt Na-Ranong, Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Surapong Tovichakchaikul, PM's Office Minister Santi Promphat, Information and Communication Technology Minister Anudith Nakornthap, Deputy Defence Minister Gen Yuthasak Sasiprapha and Deputy Commerce Minister Siriwat Kachornprasart of the first Yingluck Cabinet that approved the transfer of National Security Council chief Thawil Pliensri were removed from office along with caretaker PM Yingluck Shinawatra.
Thawil Pliensri, the reinstated National Security Council chief, announced a few times in the past that he will not report to Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra.
The Constitution that allowed the Elite controlled 'Constitutional Court' to rule such a controversial verdict was 'made' by Bangkok's Elite with the help of the Military and the Democrat Party after their 2007 coup d'etat to maintain their power over Thailand.
It shows that Thailand's courts are anything else than independent bodies.
It seems to be a perfect team work between the Elite controlled Constitutional Court and the Elite controlled Election Commission (EC): The EC nullified the February 2nd poll, delayed the set of a date for a new one and did not submit the papers to seek a new Royal Decree for a new poll date. Without Prime Minister no Royal Decree, without Royal Decree no new election.
UPDATE: Thailand's Cabinet nominated Commerce Minister Niwatthamrong Boonsongpaisal (or Niwatthamrong Boonsongpaisan) as the successor of Yingluck Shinawatra. Let's wait and look the next action(s) of Thailand's unscrupulous Elite...
Constitutional Court's ruling unconstitutional?
The Court's ruling runs against Section 181 of the constitution. Section 181 says: 'The outgoing Council of Ministers shall remain in office to perform duties until the newly appointed Council of Ministers takes office'. It seems that there have been moves by the Democrat Party, the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) and organisations set up under the Constitution to overthrow democracy and elections and that the Constitutional Court not even knows the Constitution or interprets it in its very own way.
Investors please keep in mind that Thailand and its courts are democratic and independent only in name.
Upside down: The Office of the Auditor General has demanded former prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra and her government to pay the February 2nd bill first. The ignorant Officials obviously forget that Suthep Thaugsuban, Abhisit Vejjajiva and their mob from the anti-government People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) managed to block candidacy registration in some constituencies and the elections at some polling stations. The stupid Officials have to ask the 3.8 billion Baht from the obstructionists. Obviously the Office of the Auditor General forget that the election was ordered by a Royal Decree. Suthep and Co. rattened the Royal Decree - until today with impunity.
Suthep Thaugsuban, the Dictator, changed the date of his final all-out battle against the government and the so-called Thaksin regime from May 14th to May 9th, 2014. Thailand's 'reincarnation of Adolf Hitler' remained tight-lipped about what his PDRC plans to do on that day.
The court's ruling disappointed Suthep Thaugsuban's anti-government People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC). They hoped the judges would throw out the entire Yingluck cabinet to pave the way for their unconstitutional, undemocratic and illegal interim government and their so-called people's council.
But Thailand's troublemaker Suthep Thaugsuban expressed confidence that by next Tuesday, May 13th, the last remnants of the government would be gone.
Nevertheless, Thailand's Elite already face splitting headache: Yingluck Shinawatra and her brother Thaksin are now more popular than ever.
The Office of the Attorney General (OAG) decided to indict People's Democratic Reform Committee leader Suthep Thaugsuban and 49 other key PDRC members on eight charges including insurrection and illegal assembly. The indictment was made on the recommendation of Department of Special Investigation (DSI). Among the group is Thawil Pliensri who appeared on the PDRC protest stage several times before being retroactively reinstated as secretary-general of the National Security Council (NSC) in March.
Suthep Thaugsuban already has warrants out for his arrest but he is still walking around. Thawil Pliensri was the reason for Thailand's Constitutional Court to oust Yingluck Shinawatra and some of Thailand's MPs.
Is it a wonder that Thailand is the laughing stock of the world?
Suthep Thaugsuban, the alleged criminal, and his anti-government People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) started their 11th(!) final battle to oust the actual Government. They announced to seize power and replace the caretaker cabinet with an interim government and to occupy Government House, the headquarters of the government, the Parliament, the Royal Thai Police Office, the Interior Ministry and the Defence Ministry, TV channels 3, 5, 7, 9 and 11 as well as the Government's Centre for the Administration of Peace and Order (Capo).
The dictator ordered the TV station to stop broadcasting information provided by Thailand's Government and to broadcast news provided by Suthep Thaugsuban only...
TV Channel 5 already aggreed to broadcast PDRC announcements.
The Centre of Administration for Peace and Order (CAPO) called on people not to join the ongoing anti-government protest. The activities of Suthep Thaugsuban and other core members of People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDCR) are against the law.
Police is greeting Suthep Thaugsuban's mob with watercannons and teargas.
Suthep Thaugsuban, the self-appointed secretary-general of the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC), demanded today that the president of the Supreme Court and the senate speaker due to be selected today must set up an interim people's government and legislative assembly within the next few days. The alleged criminal even visited Deputy Senate Speaker Surachai Liengboonlertchai and submitted a petition to Thailand's Elite controlled Senate.
Because of PDCR protests traffic in Bangkok is heavily congested or at a standstill. AirAsia and other Airlines advise passengers to leave early.
Appointed Senator Surachai Liangboonlertchai (also known as Surachai Liengboonlertchai) was elected new Senate speaker. He is backed by the Group of 40 appointed senators, the anti-government People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) and elected senators from the South, mainly affiliated with the Democrat Party.
Anti-government (and anti-democratic) forces including the Democrat Party are pushing the Senate speaker to appoint a new prime minister and/or cabinet.
Shortly after Mr Surachai's victory, PDRC's self-appointed secretary-general Suthep Thaugsuban called on him to submit the name of a new prime minister for His Majesty the King without delay. Failing that, Bangkok's Dictator has said, the PDRC would appoint a people's government and premier.
Election Commission (EC) chairman Supachai Somcharoen announced that a new election is unlikely to be staged because of the bad political atmosphere. The EC is known to be 'controlled' by Bangkok's Elite, e.g. Suthep Thaugsuban's supporters.
The Royal Decree to open the Senate's extraordinary session did not include a vote for a speaker. It allowed the Senate to choose a justice of the Administrative Court and a member of the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) based on Section 132 (2) of the Constitution only. Therefore the Senate speaker's election was against the Constitution.
Furtermore, the Senate speaker's election could be viewed as a conflict of interest under Section 122 because Mr Surachai is the one who called the meeting. He also acted as its chairman and debated during the election in which he later ran. Without royal endorsement, the new Senate speaker will not have full authority. He can not call a meeting to perform its duties such as removing Ms Yingluck Shinawatra, as well as the senators who were charged by the NACC.
Dictator Suthep Thaugsuban announced to take unilateral action as soon as Monday, May 12th, to set up his people's government if the Senate and courts fail to establish the interim administration he has postulated. The self-appointed secretary-general already moved his command centre for the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) to the Government House. He plans to hold meetings of demonstration leaders and announces their daily statements there...
It's not a Soap Opera - it's Thai Politics at its Best!
After massive protests of the Thai Broadcast Journalists Association and the Thai Journalists Association PDRC's leaders decided to end the occupation of TV Channel 3, 5, 7, 9 and 11 today. Their leaders will guide back their mob to Lumpini Park before they will join their megalomaniac leader Suthep Thaugsuban at his new headquarters at Government House on Monday, May 12th, 2014.
Update: We just learned that Suthep Thaugsuban's mob leaves Lumpini Park for a new main stage near the United Nations office on Ratchadamnoen. The militant Network of Students and People for Reform of Thailand (NSPRT) will remain at its stage near Government House. Heavily armed PDRC guards secure Santri Maitree Building at Government House, the Dictator's new headquarters.
Maj Gen Apirat Kongsompong claims that Military and Police forces have not withdrawn from Government House and are still in charge of the compound. They have allowed the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) to use only the Santi Maitree building for press conferences. PDRC core members are allowed to use the Santi Maitree building only to hold press conferences, not the entire Government House compound, he said.
It was reported that Col Sombat Thanyawan, chief-of-staff of the Cavalry Centre in charge of security units at Government House, handed over the Santi Maitree building to the care of the PDRC and NSPRT guards led by Nasser Yima.
Let's wait how Suthep Thaugsuban interprets the deal...
Luang Pu Buddha Isara, a Buddhist monk and a co-leader of the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) announced that he wants state power returnes to King Bhumibol Adulyadej, the King of Thailand.
Tharit Pengdit, secretary general of the caretaker government's Center for the Administration of Peace and Order (CAPO), announced that the Police forces, including the Arintharat Special Police unit, will immediately arrest protest leader Suthep Thaugsuban and 50 others on rebellion charges if the arrest warrant, already submitted by public prosecutors, is approved by the Criminal Court today. Thai police forces have been prepared to take action to put anti-government leaders in custody, he said and added that members of the public should stay away from anti-government protesters anywhere in the capital as the police forces will immediately take action to arrest the protest leaders.
Thailand's Arintharat 26 Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) is in charge for the operation.
It is not clear why the Police have to wait for new arrest warrants. There are already valid arrest warrants out for Suthep and 14 other core leaders of the PDRC mob. Perhaps the bureaucrats can't find the 'old' ones anymore...
Update (24:00): Nothing happened, no arrests. Obviously there is still a 'holy hand' protecting the alleged gangsters.
Every day a new episode of Thailand's political Soap Opera:
Thailand's obviously illegally appointed Senate Speaker holds a closed-door discussion with the self-appointed leader of the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) and let him enter parliament premises.
It's a real laughing stock: A man under an arrest warrant is able to walk freely in and out of the parliament! Are Thai authorities and the Police so afraid of him - or of the holy hand that seems to protect Suthep Thaugsuban that he and his friends can ignore all of Thailand's laws?
Suthep Thaugsuban and his 'peaceful' PDRC guards seem to be the terrorists:
According to Pol Col Kamthorn Ouicharoen, superintendent of Bangkok's explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) police, a security sweep of an area earlier occupied by guards of the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) at Lumpini Park turned up 10 Kevlar-type vests, material to make an emulsion bomb, six home-made pipe bombs, two ping-pong bombs and a large firecracker, often used as a source material for gunpowder for explosives.
His police also found an ID card belonging to a 23-year resident of Nakhon Si Thammarat. It was found in a bag containing the bombs and a sheet of paper listing the names of others identified as guards.
Rumours always claimed that explosives thrown on PDRC demonstration sites were thrown by its own people to calumniate Suthep Thaugsuban opponents.
Thailand's Criminal Court approved a request by the Department of Special Investigation (DSI), Thailand's FBI, for arrest warrants for another 30 leading members of the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) for insurrection and a few other charges.
Let's hope that somebody really arrest now all these alleged insurrectionist. If Suthep Thaugsuban and his co-leaders are in custody PDRC & Co. will disappear very soon.
And the Soap Opera goes on:
PDRC leaders and followers rushed from their demonstration venue on Ratchadamnoen Avenue to the heavily guarded air force compound where a meeting between election commissioners and and the caretaker government should take place. The arrival of the PDRC prompted Mr Niwatthamrong and members of his caretaker cabinet to quickly end the meeting and leave the venue. The premier and other senior cabinet members had to be escorted out of the venue while rally leader Suthep Thaugsuban entered the venue's back door...
PDRC demonstrators announced to visit the office of the Election Commission at the Government Complex in Laksi district to demand national reform before the next election.
Election Commissioner (EC) Somchai Srisuthiyakorn announced that the election tentatively scheduled for July 20 may have to delay. Obviously the EC never was interested to hold an election. The EC's Commissioners act like the puppets of Bangkok's Elite, dubbed in Bangkok's Newspapers as Royalists.
Just hours before Suthep Thaugsuban ordered heads of government offices to report to his People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) next Monday. I take over the government if the Senate fails to form an interim government before then, the dictator announced.
General Prayuth Chan-ocha, the chief of Thailand's Army, told the press that if violence continues the military may need to come out to restore peace and order. We may need to use force to resolve the situation.
Bangkok's Elite is still supporting Criminals
Wasan Soypisudh, until August 1st, 2013, president of Thailand's Constitution Court, said an election does not represent democracy in its entirety and added that he did not think the People's Democratic Reform Committee is guilty of acts of insurrection.
Meechai Ruchupan, an acting Prime Minister of Thailand following a military takeover of the government that took place in February 1991, claims Section 7 of the constitution does not directly authorise the appointment of an interim prime minister, but can be applied to fix problems which if no other provisions in the constitution can.
A Senate coordinating committee, controlled by Senators appointed by Bangkok's Elite, concluded that the Upper House has the authority to select an interim prime minister to break the political impasse, either via Section 7 or Section 132 of the charter.
General Prayuth Chan-ocha, Commander-in-Chief of the Royal Thai Army, an extremely royalist and opponent of former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra, warned the red-shirt's United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) to mobilise its supporters this weekend to oppose the Senate's efforts to install an (unelected) interim prime minister under Section 7 of the constitution. He claims the move has fuelled fears that violence will ensue. Obviously the General still thinks that only Suthep Thaugsuban's PDRC mob has the right to demonstrate.
Joke of the day:
Tarit Pengdith, director-general of the Department of Special Investigation (DSI, Thailand's FBI) and secretary-general of the Centre for the Administration of Peace and Order (Capo), said Police would arrest PDRC leaders who did not stay at their demonstration sites and were not protected by personal guards...
India shows Thailand how Democracy works:
Sonia and Rahul Gandhi, the big losers, take full responsibility for the Congress Party's heavy defeat. We humbly respect the verdict of the people, they said and congratulated incoming Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who has hailed a landmark election victory by his BJP party.
But acting Senate speaker Surachai Liengboonlertchai announced that Thailand's Senate may have to convene a special meeting to select a new (appointed but non-elected) prime minister to bring the country out of the political impasse - as stipulated by their supporters, known as Bangkok's Elite.
In Thailand Suthep Thaugsuban and his terrorists can disrupt meetings of state organisations, confiscate ballots, order provincial election committees to send back general election ballots, disrupt advance voting, block polling stations and setting deadlines for the Senate to act. And all without beeing prosecuted. If Police arrest one of his leaders, Thailand's Criminal Court releases the defendant within minutes on bail. An unelected Elite and an alleged criminal are blocking whole a country, completely ignoring the rights of its citizens.
After Thailand's Senate failed to install an interim prime minister, misleadingly dubbed as neutral prime minister, PDRC's self-appointed megalomaniac Suthep Thaugsuban announced that his movement will now find a way to have an interim prime minister on its own. He already installed his headquarters in the Santri Maitree Building at Government House with the help of Thailand's Military.
Suthep Thaugsuban obviously is a the big liar too!
Anti-government protest leader Suthep Thaugsuban alleged that former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra had given 35 senators 200 million Baht each (!) to stop backing the demands of the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC). It's a lie, but it was published by almost all Elite controlled newspapers to discredit Thailand's only trustworthy businessman. A few businessmen from Taiwan and Japan told me a few years ago that Thaksin Shinawatra is the only businessman in Thailand they would make a contract by handshake.
An angry Suthep Thaugsuban told his entourage he would hold no more talks with the Senate, he would try to find his own way to set up an interim government and would not wait for the Senate to take action.
Pridiyathorn Devakula, a member of Thailand's ELITE and a former finance minister, said once a new prime minister replaces the caretaker government with its limited administrative power, especially in budget affairs, the economy can be quickly restored. He is wrong. The international community and their investors already learned that Thailand's courts are controlled by Bangkok's ELITE and are acting according to Bangkok's ELITE.
Peerasak Porchit, the acting Second Deputy Senate Speaker, announced that the upper house is still looking for the best way to install a neutral (read: appointed and unelected) Prime Minister who would have full authority to run the country. He claims the result is now almost inevitable. The process is already 80% complete, he said.
Somchai Srisutthiyakorn reported on behalf of the Election Commission (EC) that there is not enough time for the Election Commission (EC) to hold a general election on July 20th, 2014. The EC managed to delay the election again, as demanded by Bangkok's ELITE.
Suthep Thaugsuban announced his mob from the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) will present Mr Niwattumrong, the acting Prime Minister, and other caretaker ministers a resignation letter for them to sign.
Suthep Thaugsuban held a meeting with members of the State Enterprises Labour Relations Confederation and all state enterprises including the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand, Metropolitan Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand, Metropolitan Electricity Authority and Thai Airways International at the Santi Maitree building in the Government House compound to discuss an operational plan. He also held a meeting with retired high-level government officials at the same venue.
The mission is to ask Mr Niwattumrong and other caretaker ministers to resign to return the sovereign power to (what the PDRC calls) the people, Akanat Promp(h)an from the PDRC said.
After the meeting State Enterprises Labour Relations Confederation secretary-general Komsan Thongsiri announced that the State enterprise labour unions have agreed to a work stoppage from May 22 to show disapproval of the Thaksin regime and those government officials that serve as its lackeys.
It shows that the unions' members are not interested to work for the benefit of the country. They should be replaced immediatly.
Illegally acting Senate Speaker Surachai Liengboonlertchai today missed a meeting with the acting premier, citing he is sick. The Senate Speaker was elected with the help of appointed Senators but without a proper Royal Decree. Senate Speaker Surachai Liengboonlertchai is still awaiting royal endorsement to legally serve as president of the upper House.
The Centre of Administration for Peace and Order (CAPO) has summoned acting Senate Speaker Surachai Liengboonlertchai. He has to answer a complaint and suspected evidence that he supports rally leader Suthep Thaugsuban, who is facing a charge of insurrection based on the suspicion that he attempted to have an unelected premier according to the constitution's Article 7.
The Anti-Money Laundering Office (AMLO) announced it will check transactions of Suthep Thaugsuban and Chumpol Julasai. The two leaders of the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) face terrorism charges.
Senator Paiboon Nititawan announced to take legal action against acting Prime Minister Niwattumrong Boonsongpaisan if he insisted on scheduling the election date with the Election Commission (EC). Article 5 on a Royal Decree to schedule an election date clearly authorised the prime minister and the EC chairman with the responsibility, which Niwattumrong could not discharge because he did not have the authority, as he is not the Prime Minister, the Senator claims.
The Senate is still Suthep Thaugsuban's hope to topple the Government.
Thailand's Senate cannot risk committing any action that may result in senators being charged with insurrection if they proceed with the installation of an interim government while the caretaker government is still functioning. Therefore the Senate needs Suthep Thaugsuban to create a political vacuum. The Senate, the Election Commission (EC) and the Constitutional Court obviously are still working hand in hand with the alleged terrorist and his People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC).
In the PDRC's final battle plan the terrorist group is apparently resorting to actions that will create a political vacuum in this country.
Suthep Thaugsuban directs five teams of People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) supporters for the residences of caretaker ministers to ask them to resign and to make way for 'reform'. Stalking is prohibited in most civilized countries in this world. In Thailand, there is no particular law against stalking. Therefore the Dictator is free to intimidate everybody on his list.
Nevertheless, Caretaker Deputy Interior Minister Pracha Prasobdee filed a complaint with police against protest leader Suthep Thaugsuban for having ordered protesters to hound caretaker ministers.
After today's meeting with Deputy Senate Speaker Phirasak Phorjit, acting caretaker Prime Minister Niwattumrong Boonsongpaisan said he refused to resign to pave way for an interim government.
A group of Elite appointed senators vowed to go ahead with contingency plans now that their initial plan to have the caretaker government resign has failed.
The United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD), also known as the Red Shirts, organised the fourth commemoration of the May 19, 2010 crackdown that saw more than 90 people killed and thousands injured.
The pro-government red-shirt supporters remembered Fabio Polenghi, the Italian photographer, who had been shot by a bullet coming from the direction of Thailand's Army on Ratchadamri Road.
An inquest into the death of Japanese Reuters cameraman Hiroyuki Muramoto, who was shot on April 10, 2010, will not finish until early next month.
The bloody crackdown of the Red Shirt demonstration was ordered by Abhisit Vejjajiva and Suthep Thaugsuban.
Deputy Police Commissioner-General Pol Gen Worapong Chiewpreecha has instructed Police to step up security of residences of caretaker ministers after stalking Suthep Thaugsuban ordered PDRC protesters to hound caretaker ministers. He also recruited Provincial Police from provinces that are strongholds of the Pheu Thai to form teams to try to arrest 30 leaders of the People's Democratic Reform Committee. It seems Bangkok's Police, obviously brainwashed by its Elite, are not able to do the job.
Since 06:00 today Thailand is in the hand of its Army.
Gen Prayuth Chan-ocha, the army chief, set up the Peace-Keeping Command Centre (PKCC) under the military, and dissolved the Government's Centre for the Administration of Peace and Order (Capo).
PDRC spokesman Akanat Promphan announced the People's Democratic Reform Committee will continue rallying for national reform before the next election despite martial law.
32 Elite appointed Senators have launched a move to unseat the caretaker cabinet. They plan to ask the Constitutional Court to remove the cabinet for allegedly illegally imposing an emergency decree from January 22nd to March 22nd, 2014. The petition says the emergency decree was approved at a cabinet meeting, therefore all cabinet members present should be removed from office if the court decides in the senators' favour. Just another approach to regain power with the help of a juridical Coup d'état.
After the military invoked martial law, Suthep Thaugsuban returned Government House to the Army - not to the people.
Thailand's Criminal Court granted a 600'000 Baht bail to Seree Wongmontha, a co-leader of the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC), just a few hours after he was arrested at Suvarnabhumi airport when he arrived back from the United States.
Luang Pu Buddha Isara, the misguided monk and a leader of the PDRC's Chaeng Wattana rally site, announced a temporary end to his protest activities following the imposition of martial law.
Luang Pu said Suthep Thaugsuban should not surrender to army chief Prayuth Prayuth if he fails to achieve victory. The situation had changed and the PDRC may have to find new, suitable ways to push its cause, the monk said.
The State Enterprises Workers' Relations Confederation, an organisation allied with the anti-government People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC), will proceed with a five-day strike today despite martial law being in force. Forty-six state enterprise labour unions are members of the confederation. The strike should put pressure on the caretaker government to step down. If the Senate installs an interim prime minister on May 26th the strike will come to an end, a spokesperson said. Otherwise the strike will continue, he added. Despite Suwit Sumala's, the deputy director-general of the Labour Protection and Welfare Department, claim that state enterprise workers don't have the right to take leave from work.
It shows once again that Suthep Thaugsuban's People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) acts like a terrorist organisation following its very own law(s) only.
Ruangkrai Leekijwattana, a member of Pheu Thai legal team, filed a petition asking the Constitutional Court to investigate (illegal) acting Senate Speaker Surachai Liangboonlertkul for alleged breach of Section 68 of the constitution.
Surachai Liangboonlertkul had abused his authority by trying to unlawfully set up an interim government and nominate an interim prime minister, Ruangkrai Leekijwattana claims.
Report says that the Army arrested Suthep Thaugsuban as well as other leader from his People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) after a meeting with General Prayuth Chan-ocha.
Leaders from the Red Shirts UDD were arrested too.
Shortly thereafter General Prayuth Chan-ocha announced his Coup d'état on Thai TV.
Read the comments and thoughts PDRC's supporters place on Bangkok Post to learn yourself how stupid the majority of Suthep Thaugsuban's 'highly educated' mob is. Bangkok Post's commentators Veera and Voranai should get an 'Oscar' each for the stupidity they are writing.
Suthep Thaugsuban allegedly believes he stays above Thailand's Law. Suthep Thaugsuban enjoys the protection from the top. Thailand's Elite against Thailand's rural people. Thailand's stupid Elite obviously still believes they represent Thailand's majority. A fallacy, in the long run they will lose the battle - and have to bear the consequences.
Darling Suthep Thaugsuban
Suthep Thaugsuban, the Darling of 'The People'?
Picture emerged on facebook
The real face
Thailand's new Dictator
shows his real intention
Thai newspapers report on December 11th that Suthep Thaugsuban threatened the Shinawatra families by saying if Thailand's Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra doesn't step down within the next three days, people in the Shinawatra family won't find any happiness in their lives (anymore).
He and his PDRC (People's Democratic Reform Committee) also ordered Thailand's Police Officers to return to their normal duties within 12 hours.
The military is asked to deploy for security purpose at state offices instead, Thailand's self-proclaimed dictator said.
His attempts to intimidate the Shinawatra clan reminds of procedures used by (Italian's) Mafia, Asia's Yakuza and other international and local Gangster Organisations.
Suthep Thaugsuban and his PDRC are supported by Thailand's Democrat Party and Thailand's former Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva.
On December 10th, a group of independent scholars, known as the assembly for the Defence of Democracy (AFDD), called on anti-government protesters to abandon attempts to push for the establishment of a fascist People's Council and instead express their political views through democratic elections.
Suthep Thaugsuban will not be able to report to prosecutors. Mr Suthep has appointed a lawyer to apply to prosecutors for a postponement of a formally indictment in connection with deaths and injuries in the military crackdown on protesters during the 2010 political violence. He doesn't have the time for the prosecutors, he is fully engaged in the PDRC's operations, PDRC core member Thaworn Senneam said on December 11th, 2013.
It seems that Suthep's connections and the support of Bangkok's Elite give him the feeling to be above Thailand's law(s).
The Royal Thai Air Force awarded an honorary skydiver certificate to Nasser Yeehma, the chief guard of an anti-government group.
After Mr Nasser posted a picture on his Facebook page of himself holding the certificate and saying he got it in recognition of his fight for the country, Air Marshal Vorachat Tharechat, commander of RTAF Security Forces Command, was obligated to clarify the procedures of the awarding.
Air force spokesman AM Monthon Sutchukorn explained that anyone with the proper qualifications could file a request with the Security Forces Command's parachute department and pay 700 baht to receive the certificate and the emblem without having to take part in real parachute traning.
Never trust a certificate issued in this country - unless you created it yourself...
Thailand's Chamber of Commerce has called on the caretaker government to stop revealing publicly the names of businessmen accused of funding Suthep Thaugsuban's People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC).
Somkiat Anuras and Vichai Assarasakorn, the chamber's vice-chairmen, called in the media to counter the caretaker government's attempts to name them.
We think the public as well as potential investors not only have the right but also the obligation to know who in this country is supporting the anti-democratic movements.
Anti-democratic business partners are unreliable partners. Thailand's pitiful history of failed investments is the proof.
Bangkok's Police today arrested three navy officers. They were in possesion of three 9mm guns, 72 bullets, five magazines, two clasp knives, one bullet-proof vest and three VIP cards issued by the Students and People Network for Thailand's Reform (SPNTR).
Their pickup truck showed an incorrect licence plate, but a license plate with a navy seal was found inside the pickup.
Rear Admiral Winai Klomin, commander of the Naval Special Warfare Command, later went to the police to show a document confirming that the three men were on assignment. He said they were investigating drug cases and all weapons were for self defense. The VIP cards were issued by SPNTR to facilitate their investigations and make travelling easier.
Perhaps the navy also has an explanation why their personnel drive their cars with incorrect licence plates and why the SPNTR already have the say in this country.
PS.: Caretaker Deputy Prime Minister Surapong Tovichakchaikul claimed on a programme broadcasted by the Television Pool of Thailand that the three navy officers also worked as guards for the anti-government protesters...
Where PDRC is, is Garbage.
Dogs know people...
Turmoil in Thailand
Seen on NighWalker's T-shirt!
Foreign Media do not understand Thailand
Thailand's media attack foreign journalists over their coverage of Bangkok's crisis and of Thailand's politics and politicians.
Most media in Thailand are in the hands of Bangkok's so called Elite, the main supporters and sponsors of Thailand's undemocratic Democrat Party and its anti-government demonstrations.
If a foreign journalist does not share the view of this Elite his reports are unbiased.
Undemocratic Democrat don't join the election
Thailand's undemocratic Democrat Party decided not to join the February 2nd, 2014, election.
It seems the party can mobilise its mob on Bangkok's street only but not on the ballot.
Party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva, a former Prime Minister promoted by Thailand's military and educated in England, seems to have forgotten everything he ever learned in Great Britain.
Hotel occupancy rate drops in Bangkok
As a result of Bangkok's unholy anti-government demonstrations the hotel occupancy rate in Bangkok droped 25.5% year on year.
69% of the companies in the capital are calling on the government to guarantee their earnings if their businesses are hit by the political chaos.
We recommend them to send their invoices to Suthep Thaugsuban and the 'Democrat Party' or one of their supporters.
The anti-government rallies have so far caused more than 70 billion Baht in economic damage to the country. Foreign investors sold off shares worth more than 200 billion Baht since Suthep Thaugsuban's protests began.
and her neighbours say
Dissolve Thailand's Democrat Party and arrest the rioter(s)!
Mr. Suthep is an liar. He doesn't represent the majority of Thailand's citizens. The upcoming election will proof it.
Suthep Thaugsuban
Suthep Thaugsuban
2013: Former premier Suthep Thaugsuban has been implicated in the police apartment block construction scandal.
2011: As chairman of the National Palm Oil Policy Committee, he helped orchestrate a phony shortage of the commodity to force up prices more than 50%.
He and his family made a fortune from the increase in price, as they are major players in the palm oil industry and huge landowners. He also pocketed kickbacks from other major producers in the South.
2010: Suthep played a major role in the bloody crackdown on the Bangkok street protests of 2010.
2009: Suthep was accused of violating the Constitution of Thailand by holding equity in a media firm that had received concessions from the government. He openly accepted large bribes for police postings and shot down the posting of more deserving officers who refused to pay him.
1995: As part of the Sor Por Kor 4-01 land reform scheme, Suthep gave title deeds to 592 plots of land in Khao Sam Liam, Kamala and Nakkerd hills of Phuket province to 489 farmers. It was later found that members of 11 wealthy families in Phuket were among the recipients.
Wikileaks diplomatic cables from the US embassy revealed that many members of his own party have long complained of his corrupt and unethical behavior such as auctioning off cabinet postings both within the Democratic Party and former coalition partners.
Despite all his misconduct mentioned above, they represent a small part of a his wrongdoing against Thailand's law only, Thailand's 'High Society', Bangkok's Elite, are supporting the mischief maker with their powerful media and their money.
Suthep Thaugsuban
Thailand's Pied Piper
Thailand's Pied Piper says that all sectors of society including government officials and employees of state enterprises must join my movement and stop working for the Yingluck Shinawatra administration in order to get rid of the regime.
Once the Thaksin regime loses all its power, that power will return to the people, Thailand's storyteller claims.
Free food and water is available at all times at the anti-government protesters sites, as are seats, LED-displays to broadcast the speeches of the agitators and tents, to mention a few facilities only.
This all isn't free, somebody has to pay for it, including the allegedly distributed pocket money for (some of) the participants of the protests.
As journalists announced to published the sources of the money, the executives of the media acted fast and told the journalists directly or indirectly to what extent they could report on the rallies.
Nevertheless, it is estimated that the cost to support the infrastructure of the protesters is a lot more than 1 million Baht/day.
The bills get payed by some of Bangkok's big earners.
Some sources even believe that the protests are an excellent opportunity to white-wash money earned in the illegal drug-business.
To get rid of the current government also means to get rid of the current anti-drug campaigns.
We just learned that the protests of the more than 50 groups, formerly known as Yellow Shirts, cost more 1 billion Baht.
Suthep's CMD Mob disrupted CAT's internet server
Suthep Thaugsuban's Civil Movement for Democracy (CMD) cut the power to the CAT Telecom building and affected its internet server in Bangkok's Bang Rak at around 14:00.
According to ICT Minister Anudith Nakornthap the anti-government protesters cut the power to the CAT Telecom building as well as the power to the international server in the CAT Telecom building and its back-up power supply system.
The power cut left about 750'000 internet users in Thailand with no connections.
We couldn't contact our people in Thailand until late afternoon Swiss Time.
MD Mob

MD Mob
Suthep's CMD Mob attacked government supporters
Anti-government protesters attacked a bus and a taxi carrying red-shirt supporters on their way to the pro-government rally.
Police confirmed that one person had been killed and five people injured with gunshot wounds.
It seems that about 2'000 protesters of the Students' Network from the Ramkhamhaeng University are responsible for the attacks.
About 70'000 red-shirt members of the United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) streamed today into the capital from all over Thailand for a pro-government rally.
I am the people
Anti-government protest leader Suthep Thaugsuban told Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra that he give her 2 days to return power to people.
The resignation of the prime minister and a House dissolution was not enough to satisfy the protesters, he told the press.
The anti-government protesters demanded that six free television channels proadcast a statement of Suthep Thaugsuban, secretary general of the PDRC (People's Democratic Reform Committee), the protest leader.
According to some journalists it was an act of dictatorship performed by a group of misleded people. The protesters' strategy was to seize all free TV stations to televise speeches made by Suthep.
Nevertheless, the self-proclaimed savior of Thailand got the chance, his statement was televised...
Now everybody in Thailand should know who is the 'people', except - perhaps - the most ignorant ones.
Jatuporn Promphan asked red shirts to go home
Red-shirt leader Jatuporn Promphan declared an end to the rally and asked 60'000 to 70'000 red shirts to go home. The decision is aimed to avoid confrontations and further loss of life, he said.
Despite of the deads former Democrat MP Suthep Thaugsuban is pushing forwards his now deadly anti-government protests.
Five people killed during protests
Red-shirt leader Jatuporn Promphan claimed four red supporters and one Ramkhamhaeng student were killed in clashes at Ramkhamhaeng last night.
On November 1st Police confirm: 4 dead and 57 wounded.
Suthep Thaugsuban
Arrest warrant for Suthep
Thailand's Criminal Court has issued an arrest warrant for anti-government protest leader Suthep Thaugsuban on charges of insurrection.
The charge is punishable by the death penalty or life imprisonment.
The Criminal Court has issued arrest warrants for four leaders of the Students and People Network for Thailand's Reform too.
34 countries warn
So far, 34 countries have issued advice to their citizens planning to travel to Thailand.
Hong Kong issued a travel warning for Bangkok, urging its citizens to avoid Thailand's capital.
The Dictator speaks again
People's Democratic Reform Committee leader Suthep Thaugsuban will deliver another statement to Thailand's citizens using Thailand's 'free TV stations' at about 19:30 or 20:30 or 21:00 Thai time (different sources tell different times).
Thailand's so called 'free TV stations' are mainly in the hand of Bangkok's Elite, which are the supporters of the anti-government movement(s).
The PDRC announced that it would continue with the protest until its goal of eliminating the Thaksin regime had been achieved.
Update: Rally leader Amorn Amornrattananon told his mob to wait for what he called 'good news' at 21:30.
Suthep Thaugsuban claims that soldiers are on his side.
Furious Police Chief
Thailand's National Police chief Adul Saengsingkaew got furious: It seems that some policemen are passing information about police strategy to protest leaders.
Thailand's Police are professionals and must respect our profession. We must not betray our profession. Any officer passing information on police plans to the demonstrators would be a traitor and should be executed, he said.
Rallies will continue
Suthep Thaugsuban and the Network of Students and People for Thailand's Reform (NSPTR) announced that the protests will continue until Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra resigns, the House of Representives dissolves, all members of the Shinawatra family leave the country and the 'people's council' is established.
We expect that Sutheps's next postulation will be the renaming of Thailand: Suthepland.
A Soap Opera made in Thailand
The Criminal Court issue a second arrest warrant for the anti-government protest leader.
Nevertheless, Suthep Thaugsuban delivers statements in front of his supporters and on Thailand's 'free TV channels'. We're going to take over the Metropolitan Police Bureau and make it the people's, Suthep announces.
Leader Sathit Wongnongtoey warns police: Do not arrest Suthep Thaugsuban. Think twice before doing anything. The Metropolitan Police Bureau is very near the Government House.
Bangkok Police Chief Kamronwit Thoopkrachang is inviting protesters to the Metropolitan Police Bureau headquarters. My officier will help you to remove concrete and barbed wire barriers, he promises.
Rally leader Tavorn Senniem declares victory after Kamronwit's invitation.
Democrat-affiliated Blue Sky satellite channel broadcasts live the demolition of the barricades.
The Centre for the Administration of Peace and Order announces that Police is missing two prisoner detaining trucks.
A Police helicopter flies over the protesters camp and distributes copies of Suthep's warrant(s).
PDRC leaders prepare balloons to deter police helicopters to fly in supplies to police units.
Soldiers from the 11th Infantry Regiment King's Guard rescue crowds protesting against the so-called "Thaksin regime" from an university compound.
Thailand's Army is considering a 'silent coup' and rewrites the constitution to honor Suthep Thaugsuban and to please Thailand's new Dictator.
Investors losing Confidence in Thailand
The protests are raising the risk of the third removal of an elected leader since August 2006
The protests will likely undermine investor confidence
(Moody's Investors Service).
Investors are getting increasingly nervous about political risk in Thailand
(HSBC Holdings Plc).
Political volatility is clearly one of Thailand's major disadvantages
(Credit Suisse Group AG).
Major Battle on December 9th
Protest leader Suthep Thaugsuban announced Monday, December 9th, as the D-Day for people's fighting against Thaksin Regime and Yingluck Government.
The People's Army against Thaksin Regime and Dharma's Army announced that their groups would join Suthep Thaugsuban's major battle.
If we don't win, I will turn myself in to face the charge (mentioned above), the corrupt trouble maker told his cheering crowds.
Let's hope he will keep his promise.
Democrat Party urges its MPs to leave the Senat
Thailand's Democrat Party resolved that all of its MPs would resign en masse to highlight that the current government no longer had legitimacy.
Thailand's infamous Elite tries everthing to get the power back with the support of the countries big newspaper. They even are promoting one of Thailand's most corrupt politician to get the goal.
Suthep's mob hit Bangkok's streets
On December 9th at 09:39 (you remember, number 9 is the lucky number in superstitious Thasiland) Suthep Thaugsuban's mob and their supporters from the 'Democrat Party' hit Bangkok's streets to topple Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra's freely elected government and to move her 'family clan' out of the country.
Thailand's Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra dissolved the House of Representatives to pave the way for a general election.
Suthep Thaugsuban, the proclaimed secretary-general of the anti-government People's Democratic Reform Committee, one of Thailand's most corrupt politicians, a violator of the country's constitution and an unethical businessman, made it clear that a House dissolution, or a resignation by the premier, would not be enough to end the rallies - not until the 'Thaksin influence' is uprooted from the country.
General election is just what Abhisit Vejjajiva and his 'Democrat Party' are fearing like the pest.
It will show the world that Bangkok's Elite doesn't have the heavy support of the people the party and its media currently simulate.
Trouble maker Suthep Thaugsuban missed his target!
According to international observers only about 50'000 supporters of the Democrat Party are on Bangkok's streets and not the announced 1'000'000 demonstrators, but Bangkok Post saw 200'000 peoples. AFP counted 140'000 protesters.
Nevertheless Suthep's mob still ask the complete eradication of the 'Thaksin Regime'.
Rally leader Suthep Thaugsuban said that today was a historic day for Thailand: We should be proud of ourselves that this is the first time the people, owners of the country, reclaimed the country from a corrupt government with our bare hands. The people had achieved a victory to wipe out the Thaksin regime, Suthep added.
The Democrat Party and Bangkok's Elite know that they can not win any election against the Pheu Thai Party. Therefor the so called 'Thaksin Regime' has to be rooted out.
That's what Bangkok's Elite call Democracy...
It seems that these people are so stupid that they not even understand the meaning of Democracy - or don't want to know it.
Dissolve Thailand's Democrat Party
Thailand's 'Democrat Party' and its members are destructing Thailand, are hindering the work of Thailand's Government, drive away Thailand's Tourist and Thailand's international Investors.
The members and rioters of Thailand's 'Democrat Party' should be banned from politics not only for 2 or 5 years but for whole their life.
They are the enemies of Thailand's Citizens and Thailand's Democracy.
Democracy means derailing an election
Bangkok's Dictator Suthep Thaugsuban announced to do everything to stop the next election.
The self-appointed secretary-general of the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) still believe that he represents the People of Thailand.
Nevertheless he fears the verdict of Thailand's voters like the devil hates the holy water.
Military should support Bangkok's Dictator
A group of retired military officers have announced their anti-government stance and called on those on active duty to side with the PDRC, or at least make a symbolic gesture of support...
It seems that at least a part of Thailand's army still doesn't understand Democracy.
Update (16:00):
Bangkok Post reports that senior military officers rejected the call by Gen Boonlert Kaewprasit, alias Seh Ai, to support the People's Democratic Reform Committee.
They say that the leader of the Pitak Siam anti-government protests group acted on his own, without consent from all the former students he claimed to represent.
Megalomaniac Suthep
Megalomaniac anti-government protest leader Suthep Thaugsuban claims:
We are the people.
We are the power.
The Dictator warns Caretaker again
If Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra ignores the demand for her to step down, she will be forced by (his) people's power to do so, the self-proclaimed saver of the Kingdom of Thailand told the press today.
Caretaking Prime Minister does not step down
Thailand's caretaking Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra denies taking leave, she told the press.
Most of Thailand's newspaper published breaking news yesterday saying that Yingluck Shinawatra will step down.
The news were published in some international publications too.
Since the protests in Bangkok intensify protest leader Suthep Thaugsuban and his liars take every opportunity to hoax Thailand's media.
Death penalty for Corrupt politicians
In his latest speak anti-government protest leader Suthep Thaugsuban demands that Politicians convicted of corruption should face the death sentence or life imprisonment.
The lovely Suthep apparently seemed to forget that he himself is one of Thailand's most corrupt member of this guild - or he still believes to be above the law.
How Thailand's Media support Bangkok's Dictator
Bangkok's The Nation published an editorial that shows how Thailand's Elite use the media to make opponents ridiculous.
It's one of the must stupid and tendentious editorial I ever read in my life.
A Prime Minister has the duty to take care of whole the country. Yingluck Shinawatra doesn't have to be at the disposal of a sik and megalomaniac Suthep Thaugsuban and a dictatorial Elite.
Supporters of the anti-government rallies get probed
Tarit Pengdith, the Director of Thailand's Department of Special Investigation (DSI), known as Thailand's FBI, announced a probe into 20 financiers who allegedly supported the anti-government rallies.
At least 3 former Army chiefs support 'The People'
Gen Wimol Wongwanit, a former Army chief, ACM Gun Pimarnthip, a former Air Force chief and Adm Wichet Karunyawanit, a former Navy chief, call on the caretaker government to resign.
The unteachable also say that all sides should join the country's reform before an election and also called on the military to announce that they would stand by 'The People'.
Visitors of our page already know that 'The People' are Suthep Thaugsuban and his financial supporters, Bangkok's infamous Elite.
Plain Stupidity
Thailand's Democrat Party, the home of the country's dubious anti-government demonstrators, fears public backlash if it boycotts election, but knows it will lose seats if it runs the February 2th's general election.
Suvarnabhumi and Don Mueang airports are missing passengers. The political unrest is the main reasons behind the decline.
Thai rice can't find buyers. The international community moved to Vietnam. We don't eat rice from corrupt ricemillers and supporters of stupid politicians.
Suthep Thaugsuban, the leader of Thailand's Hooligans?
UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon said that Suthep Thaugsuban's plan to march to Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra's residence is an act of hooliganism.
Ban Ki Moon warned the protesters that any actions that go against democracy will send the country backwards.
In addition to the United Nations, 50 countries have expressed concern at the political chaos in Thailand so far.
Suthep Thaugsuban, the leader of Thailand's so called Hooligans, earlier harassed Yingluck's son and is now planning to send female protesters to intimidate Yingluck at her house.
Deputy Government Spokeswoman Sunisa Lertpakawat asked the protest leader to stop harassing caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra and her family.
Caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra herself called on protesters not to break the laws when they rally outside her house.
DSI will freeze PDRC's bank accounts
Thailand's Department of Special Investigation (DSI), the Kingdom's FBI, announced that it would freeze the bank accounts of 18 leaders of the anti-government People's Democratic Reform Committee. Furthermore it will ask the banks to hand over all transaction details over the past six months.
The DSI also reports that it will summon 18 PDRC leaders for questioning.
They have to report to the DSI on December 26th and 27th.
But Bangkok Post reported on December 18th that police investigators met to discuss the arrest of Mr Suthep and concluded that the summons for the ex-Democrat MP would not be issued yet to avoid possible confrontation with the protesters, despite the Metropolitan Police Bureau (MPB) has issued a warrant for Mr Suthep's arrest...
The Dictator shows his understanding of Democracy
Monday, December 23rd, 2013, is the application day for all election candidates.
Suthep Thaugsuban, the self-proclaimed leader of the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC), announced that he and his mob will block the Thai-Japanese Stadium in Din Daeng district to prevent candidates from entering it.
Instead of the announced 3 million protesters, only tens of thousands people joined his mass rally on Sunday, December 22nd.
Nevertheless, big mouth Suthep Thaugsuban declared the massive number of protesters showed that everybody wanted political reform to take place before the next election, and the people want caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra to resign.
If Yingluck and the caretaker cabinet will not resign, people will join the protests again and again to force them from their posts. We are ready to block (roads) for seven to ten days, he said.
Security agencies estimated that about 270'000 protesters joined the rallies, but Bangkok's big mouth Suthep saw 3.5 million people...
Suthep Thaugsuban needs a doctor - URGENTLY!
In a fiery speech on December 22nd Suthep Thaugsuban, the self-proclaimed leader of the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC), told his audiences because Yingluck clings to her prime minister's seat, we must come out to chase her. We will keep chasing her until she is dead or until she leaves.
If the election still goes ahead on February 2nd (2014), we will shut down the entire country and no one will vote, Bangkok's Dictator said.
This man seems to be sick and needs a doctor - or a room an a nuthouse...
Bangkok's Dictator threatens again
If Prime Minister and Defence Minister Yingluck Shinawatra has not resigned, Bangkokians will not be able to go to the polls, because we will shut down the entire city on Feb 2. The EC (Election Commision) cannot sue us for obstructing the election because we will not be shutting down the city to hinder the election, but to evict Yingluck, Suthep Thaugsuban said.
He also said that the people had expressed their wish in not wanting the Feb 2 general election to take place unless political reforms are made first by the two-day rally at the registration venue. The protest was only a prelude to more opposition planned against the polls.
The self-proclaimed leader of the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) still believe that he speaks for Thailand's citizens. So why he is fearing the election? If he should win, he would be able to realise his (stupid) ideas.
But Suthep Thaugsuban already knows that the majority of Thailand's voters don't will choose him and his party's dictatorship.
So why he still speaks in the name of Thailand's people?
Miss Chitpas Bhirombhakdi, a member of the owners of Singha beer brewery, and an anti-government leader herself explained it a few days ago: We're not taking away democracy. We just need some time to reform the country before we can move on to democracy. The problem is that many Thais lack a true understanding of democracy - especially in the rural areas. The 'well educated lady' damned every single rural voter as an idiot.
Therefore we assume that only supporters of Suthep Thaugsuban and Thailand's Democrat Party can be called people...
Protesters are using force.
Some protesters harassed and attacked reporters covering the blockade of the election candidacy registration process.
Other protesters stormed the office of the Department of Special Investigation. They wanted to see the evidence behind charges levied at their leaders.
Suthep Thaugsuban, the dictator, announced that protesters nationwide would shut down the country on election day to block people exercising their right to vote.
Miss Chitpas Bhirombhakdi damned every single rural voter as an idiot.
The 35-year old driver of Satit Pitutecha, a member of the Democrat Party and a former Rayong MP, threw firecrackers at Din Daeng's police station during the ongoing anti-government protests.
Coordinator Uthai Yodmanee of the anti-government Student and People Network for Thailand's Reform (SPNTR) blocked the election candidacy registration venue at the Thai-Japanese Stadium and declared with the help of a powerful loudspeaker system that the people are the ones who will call the election, not the politicians. We want the EC to call off the election. It is not legitimate.
Uthai Yodmanee forget that he doesn't have the legitimation to speak on behalf of Thailand's citizens. He only has the support of his very own undemocratic mob.
Democracy, freedom and human rights trampled underfoot
Once again Suthep Thaugsuban, the Dictator of Bangkok, and his mob are trampling democracy, freedom and human rights underfoot.
Suthep Thaugsuban's protesters invaded and destroyed government property and obstructed the election process at the stadium in Bangkok's Din Daeng area.
The Election Commission (EC) organised the drawing of ballot sheet numbers for the party-list system in the planned Feb 2 election. Thirty political parties which had applied to contest the general election.
Outside the building, chaos reigned as protesters of the Network of Students and People for Reform of Thailand (SRT) tried to disrupt the process.
Police used water cannons, tear gas and rubber bullets against the law breaking anti-government protesters.
Four Police were injured by bullets and ping pong bombs, allegedly fired by rioters.
Police Sergeant Major Narong Pitisit died. He was shot at his right chest with live bullet and suffered from severe blood loss.
Four schools in the area had to be closed because of the clashes.
Miss Anchalee Paireerak, a TV anchor and Bangkok radio host, is leading a number of People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) protesters to house of Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra in Soi Yothin Pattana 3 of Bangkok.
