Pol. Maj-Gen. Pramote Pathumwong, deputy commissioner of Provincial Police Region 2, said arrest warrants were issued for 14 Red Shirt protesters who stormed into the hotel in the resort of Pattaya on April 11 where the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) was to hold its summit with six dialogue partners.

Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva decided to cancel the summit immediately after the incident.

Arrest warrants were issued for twelve UDD protesters who attacked Mr. Abhisit’s car on April 7 after he left a Cabinet meeting at the Pattaya hotel where the ASEAN summit with dialogue partners was to be held. The prime minister who had chaired the Cabinet meeting there was unhurt.

The court issued arrest warrants for the remaining 10 UDD protesters on charges of attacking the prime minister’s car inside the Interior Ministry compound and severely injuring Nipon Prompan, secretary-general to the prime minister, on Sunday, Gen. Pramote said.

All were charged with illegal assembly of more than 10 persons, inciting unrest in the country, trespassing on government property and damaging government property. (TNA)
