After a report of the statement of a Puea Thai member of parliament that ex premier Thaksin will return to Thailand on Thursday, PM Abhisit said that all persons must respect the judicial process, and that the government will maintain order if there is turmoil caused by the ex-premier’s supporters.

Queried regarding a report of the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) that reinstated Pol. Gen. Patcharawat Wongsuwan was linked to the October 7 violence, Mr. Abhisit said he would look into the matters both of the law and the NHRC report submitted to the government and will proceed in an appropriate manner.

“I confirmed that I will proceed the action against anyone involved in the incident regardless of their connection as a relative of cabinet members. I give confidence to people who lost that everything will be fair,” Mr. Abhisit said.

On October 7, police used tear gas to disperse protesters surrounding Parliament intending to block the administration of Somchai Wongsawat from presenting its policy statement. Two persons were killed in the violence.

Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva led the Cabinet to conduct worship of the Phra Phrom god, the Hindu god Brahma, and spirit shrine at Government House prior to the first Cabinet meeting Tuesday in a cheerful atmosphere following Government House restoration after sustaining damage caused by the occupation by People Alliance’s for Democracy (PAD) protesters.
