Bangkok, the 5th of January 2010 [TNA]: Mr Jatuporn, also an MP for the opposition Puea Thai Party MP, said a UDD team was sent to survey the Khao Yai Thiang to prepare the specious big area to serve more than 100,000 Red Shirt protesters expected to turn up on Monday.

He said the demonstration was aimed to call attention to the legal double standard practice by the government as it had ignored the encroachment of the national forest reserve at Khao Yai Thiang by former prime minister Gen Surayud and his wife.

The red-shirts accused Gen Surayud of encroaching on Khao Yai Thiang forest in Nakhon Ratchasima’s Pak Chong district. The UDD expects to point out two more double standards as practiced by the government, but the party would detail them later, he said.

Mr Jatuporn said that after the Monday demonstration, the United Front leaders are scheduled to meet later in the week, on Friday (January 15) to plan their next movements and set a date for their mass rally in Bangkok.

The UDD leader said he expects over one million supporters to join the anti-government rally, and that it will occupy an area including Sanam Luang, Ratchadamnern Road, the Royal Plaza and Government House.

The rally would be ‘one off’, to win or to lose, not expected to be prolonged as he believed that after seven days, the government would feel the trouble.

The conflict will end when Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva dissolves Parliament and calls a new general election, and lets the people decide their choice of government, he said, adding that the parties concerned should honour the election result and agree that the loser should not challenge the winner.

Meanwhile, the issue of amending the constitution can be discussed after a new government is formed, he said.

Mr Jatuporn said that the mass rally has nothing to do with the court case over the confiscation of Bt76 billion in assets of fugitive former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra and his family. The next hearing is scheduled this month. (TNA)
