Suthep announces 4-point demands against Yingluck govt

BANGKOK, Dec 11 – Thai protest leader Suthep Thaugsuban made a vague announcement last night on the protesters’ next move against the government including a demand for the government's police forces to return to their barracks within 12 hours.

In his four-point demands, the former Democrat MP charged Yingluck Shinawatra with failing to relinquish her caretaker premiership within 24 hours as instructed by the People’s Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) on Monday night.
Now that Ms Yingluck has defied the order, the PDRC will take legal action against her and her colleagues for insurrection given their violation of the Constitution and rejection of the Constitution Court’s power, he said.
The PDRC instructed the national police chief to order all police officers to return to their respective units within 12 hours, as of 10.30 pm last night, and military personnel to provide security at government buildings since the military has been highly trusted, said Mr Suthep.
He urged Thai people to monitor the movements of the Shinawatra family members and all Cabinet members, and respond to them peacefully and non-violently.

The PDRC, of which Mr Suthep is secretary general, have rallied at two separate sites at the Democracy Monument and Nang Lerng. (MCOT online news)

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
