Bangkok, the 21st of February 2010 [TNA]: Mr Abhisit said he had been informed that an unidentified caller telephoned the recently established Bangkok Safety Prevention Centre that a bomb had been hidden at the ministry, but the call turned out to be false.

He called for cooperation from people, saying the government is trying to maintain order to benefit everyone. So, he said such action is not a funny thing to do because officials have to work harder.

Attempts to create unrest in the country intensified as the Supreme Court’s Criminal Division for Holders of Political Positions will rule this week whether the Bt76.6 billion in frozen assets frozen by the government from fugitive, ousted premier will be confiscated.

The ex-premier is accused of accumulating the assets by abusing his power while he was prime minister. Mr Thaksin was ousted from power in a bloodless coup in September 2006.

On reports that traders have begun hoarding goods due to fears of violence which could erupt before or after the court verdict, Mr Abhisit said the situation in general remained calm and stern actions would be taken against those attempting to cause violence.

On warnings issued by about 20 countries urging their citizens from avoiding traveling to Thailand for safety reasons due to current political rallies, Mr Abhisit said those governments predicted that tensions would erupt in Thailand as the court ruling approaches. (TNA)
