Truth Today television talk show host Veera Musikapong confirmed that an anti-government protest by the UDD Red Shirt activists will be held peacefully in the province on Sunday with former premier Thaksin Shinawatra delivering a telephone address to the event.

Meanwhile, Jatuporn Prompan, another Truth Today commentator, confirmed that UDD Red Shirts in Lop Buri province would also gather peacefully to protest Prime Minister Abhisit’s visit on Saturday.

The Puea Thai Party MP cautioned that local government officials, including the Lop Buri governor himself, should not overreact to the anti-government movement or attempt to intimidate the Red Shirt protesters.

Though Mr. Abhisit and his Cabinet would certainly be greeted by the Red Shirt demonstrators there, they will commit no violence, Mr. Jatuporn promised, because they would only bring blame upon themselves if they created any disorder.

Deputy Prime Minister Suthep Thuagsuban, heading security affairs, said nothing out-of-the-ordinary is expected to occur during the premier’s visit to Lop Buri and called on the Red Shirt faithful to respect law and order.

The deputy premier said he had not been informed of the reported deployment of about 1,500 police and military to provide a perimeter around anti-government protesters.

He dismissed speculation that he might transfer the Lop Buri governor if violence took place during the premier’s visit.(TNA)
