BANGKOK– May 8, 2014 [Pattaya Daily News]; A German reporter “Mr. Nick Nostitz”, a freelance journalist revealed that he was attacked by rally guards near the red shirts mob, and tried to lead him to a leader while he was reporting at the Constitutional Court yesterday afternoon.

Mr Nick Nostitz said that he was stood smoking with Mr Jonathan Head, a senior reporter from the BBC in the entrance to the Constitutional Court at 14.30 when suddenly a group of guards walked up to him and asked him his name and asked him to go with them which he refused and tried to walk back into the court building. Then suddenly they grabbed him and tried to drag him to nearby motorcycle so he shouted for help but nobody came to help him. He then fought back and because he was stronger than them he was able to free himself and the guards fled before the police arrived.

Mr.Nick also said that he was frightened and he couldn’t imagine what’s going to happen with him. He added that he is going to sue the guards that tried to assault him, although he doesn’t want to he needs to do it because he had been targeted by the PDRC group and plus, if he does nothing, these men will carry on doing this to other journalists .

Pol.Capt.Witthaya also added that Mr Nick claimed that the PDRC guards have a blacklist of who they are after and he assumed he was on the list. However the police showed him some pictures of the PDRC guard’s but he couldn’t remember their faces because they were covered with sunglasses and masks so now the police are checking the CCTV around the scene.
