Deputy PM: Suspected Red Shirt Link in Excrement Package

Deputy Prime Minister Suthep Thaugsuban said Monday's incident in which bags of human waste were thrown over the wall into the Prime Minister’s Sukhumvit area home may be related to the anti-government United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD), popularly known as the Red Shirts.

The bags of assorted foul-smelling excrement and fermented fish were thrown into the grounds of the premier’s home in Bangkok’s upscale Sukhumvit area. The deputy prime minister denied elaborating on that but said it is possible that the UDD was behind it.
 
Meanwhile he ruled out any relation with the police, who were disappointed from removal from their post. Mr Suthep, in charge of security affairs, ordered Metropolitan Police Bureau chief Pol Lt-Gen Santan Chayanont to inspect the site and report to adjust security measures at Mr Abhisit’s home. Security has been also stepped up at houses of other prominent figures after the incident.
 
The deputy prime minister said it was a coincidence that it happened when no police were present at Mr Abhisit’s house. He said it was not the fault of the police, but said they are not cautious enough. Mr Suthep said he had expected pressure from several sides as the court is scheduled to rule on the case
of Bt76 billion (US$2.3 billion) frozen assets of ousted premier Thaksin Shinawatra later this month.

He confirmed that the government will not intervene in the judicial procedures and called for the public to respect the country’s justice system which is in accordance with international standards. It is not true that some people said the court is not impartial, he asserted, saying that the information is distorted. The prime minister will not move to a safe house as he does not like to be guarded by heavy security, Mr Suthep said.

Expressing confidence that the deputy army chief will be able to control the situation as Army Chief Gen, Anupong Paochinda is due to travel to the United States on Friday. (TNA)
