The battle of politically-motivated vandalism continues in Sattahip where more campaign billboards – this time for Democratic Party candidates – were destroyed.
Six signboards for Chonburi Zone 8 MP candidate Maitree Soiluang and Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva were defaced with profane graffiti in Sattahip moos 5 and 6. Other signs had the politicians’ faces excised. The damage had apparently been done over several days, but not reported until June 11.

Former Moo 5 village chief Natchai Sangsri said he contacted police and urged locals to refrained from the vandalism, even if they oppose the candidates or their political party. He said such vulgarity only spreads dissent and offends people who see the signs.
Jakkrit Kraimat, the Democrats chief representative in Chonburi, said he inspected the damage and urged police to find the vandals.
The latest round of sign defacements follows similar incidents in late May against Democrat billboards in Najomtien and Puea Thai Party sign boards near Bang Saray. Unrest is expected continue through the polls on July 3.
