Security has been tightened at the homes of a number of top Thai officials -- judges, National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) members and former members of the now disbanded Assets Examination Committee (AEC), reported national news agency TNA.

The move followed remarks by Maj-Gen Khattiya Sawasdipol that assassination plot was planned against some of them, said Deputy Prime Minister Suthep Thaugsuban on Saturday.

There should be no worry about the remarks made by Gen Khattiya, Suthep said, but as a precaution, security officials have been posted at residences of prominent judges, and members of the NACC and the AEC.

Controversial Gen Khattiya, also known as ‘Seh Deang’, on Wednesday warned of an assassination plot was planned against court judges, members of NACC and the now dissolved AEC, all of which are related to the decision later this month on former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra’s assets.

Gen Khattiya said his warnings were usually correct.

The judging panel who are scheduled to hand down a verdict on February 26 on whether the 76 billion baht (about $2 billion) in frozen assets were accumulated illegally while Thaksin Shinawatra was prime minister and, thus, should be seized.
