The UDD leaders began addressing the demonstrators at 4pm from their Sanam Luang platform on Sunday, one day ahead of Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva’s delivery of the government’s policy statement in Parliament.

Mr. Veera said UDD leader Nuttawut Saikua planned to talk on stage about financial support from TPI Polene Pcl to the Democrat Party and show evidence of money transaction. He said the wrongdoing can be punished by the party’s dissolution.

UDD leader Chatuporn Promphan said that the UDD will announce at 8 pm Sunday evening whether it will move its widely publicised protest to Parliament to pressure the government on Monday or not.

If there is no so-called ‘third party’ joining the protesters and the UDD leader can control the crowd to protest in a peaceful manner, he said, the group will move to Parliament.

After the New Year the UDD activists will decide whether to prolong their protest, he added.

About 5,000 police officers have reinforced security at Parliament.

Meanwhile, Puea Thai party spokesman Pormpong Nopparit said that the content of 40,000 pamphlets distributed by the police in Bangkok, surrounding areas and other provinces is considered threatening.

The pamphlets said those, who obstructed the government’s policy statement delivery in the parliamentary seesion, would be charged with insurrection, said Pormpong.

While calling on Prime Minister Abhisit to dissolve the parliament, he told those who received the pamphlets from the police that peaceful protests without weapons is not against the law. (TNA)
