Pheu Thai MPs say they will not allow more attacks on House Speaker


BANGKOK, 31 May 2012  – Members of Parliament for the Pheu Thai Party affirm they will take action if Opposition MPs show intent to physically attack the House Speaker in today’s Parliament meeting. They also urged the leader and the chief advisor of the Democrat Party to give verbal warning to their MPs to stick to parliamentary disciplines. 

Pheu Thai Member of Parliament for Samut Prakan Province, Mr. Pracha Prasopdi, said that Democrat MPs’ attempt to link yesterday’s consideration of four draft bills related to national reconciliation, with the 46-billion-baht frozen asset belonging to Police Lieutenant Colonel Thaksin Shinawatra, was possibly made to incite demonstrators camping outside of Parliament.

Mr. Pracha added that if Democrat MPs still show intention to harm the House Speaker, he will not let such an act to happen. Mr. Pracha also asked Mr. Chuan Leekpai, the Chairperson of the Democrat Party Advisory Council, and Mr. Abhisit Vejjajiva, the leader of the Democrat Party, to caution their party members against inappropriate behavior.
