Civil Suit Filed Against Airport Protesters

Bangkok, the 9th of December 2009 [TNA]: Thai Airways International (THAI) on Wednesday filed a Bt575 million civil lawsuit against Maj-Gen Chamlong Srimuang, a key protest leader and 35 other Peoples’ Alliance for Democracy (PAD) leaders with spearheading thousands of protesters to take possession of the country‘s two main airports last year.

The first court hearing is scheduled for February 22.

The protests led by the 36 accused from November 25 to December 4, 2008 were aimed to topple the administration of then-prime minister Somchai Wongsawat.

The airport seizure resulted in huge losses for the company in covering the costs of providing accommodation and food for stranded passengers, paying allowances for its employees, and transferring passengers to other airlines, estimated at Bt478 million.

The cost of damages also included losses of income from suspended transportation services worth Bt33 million.

Damages amount to Bt535 million with interest of Bt40 million, beginning from the date the incident occurred.

Last year, thousands of anti-Thaksin Shinawatra PAD protesters or the so-called Yellow Shirt occupied Suvarnabhumi and Don Mueang airports, halting all flights and demanding the resignation of then prime minister Somchai.

The PAD claimed that Mr Somchai, a brother-in-law of Mr Thaksin, was a proxy of the ousted premier.

The protests at two airports ended after the Constitution Court ruled to dissolve the ruling People Power Party for election fraud and disqualified the party’s head and executives, automatically removing Mr Somchai from his post as premier. (TNA)
