PDRC leader signals move to protect key independent public agencies


BANGKOK, 14 March 2014  PDRC core leader Suthep Thaugsuban has urged all PDRC supporters to be ready if Prime Minister Yingluck is ruled guilty in her case with the NACC, as he believes the UDD would try to besiege the independent public agency.

Leader of the People’s Democratic Reform Committee Suthep Thaugsuban stated at the Lumpini Park rally site that all PDRC supporters should prepare themselves if Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra is found guilty by the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) — believing that the United Front for Democracy Against Dictatorship (UDD) would immediately rally to her defense against the verdict.

The PDRC leader went on to say that he believed the UDD will target independent public agencies as they have already started their attempts to close down the NACC office.

Mr. Suthep also urged Ms. Yingluck to respect the Constitutional Court’s decision on rejecting the 2 trillion baht mega project budgeting. He said Thailand must be governed by the Rule of Law and that the law must be respected.
