Security forces safeguarding PM’s home


BANGKOK, 29 March 2014  Prime Minister and Defense Minister Yingluck Shinawatra is expected to stay home today to monitor mass protests by the People’s Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) as security forces reportedly surround her house. 

Security officers have been stationed around the PM’s house in Soi Yothin Pattana, while checkpoints have also been set up in the area to ensure safety and order. According to the report, the house will be guarded twenty-four/seven. Miss Yingluck will closely monitor mass demonstrations being held in Bangkok, while remaining inside her home.

It is expected that she will suspend all her duties today to take the opportunity to rest her damaged left ankle. Miss Yingluck has been seen in a wheelchair over the past few days. She fell to the ground as she stepped out of a vehicle two weeks ago, resulting in a torn ankle ligament. It is expected to take about 1-2 months for her to fully recover.
