The protesters under the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) began their journey from Ratchadamnoen Avenue around 10am. The march is being led by one of its key members, Thaworn Senniam.
Sathit Wongnongtoey, another PDRC leader, told the crowd at Democracy Monument on Ratchadamnoen Avenue late Tuesday night that PDRC representatives had earlier submitted a letter to the police setting a seven-day deadline to investigate the case. The deadline had passed so protesters would go to ask the police about the investigation.
“This time, we don’t have to walk. Get on a car and stay in front of the national police office. People in Bangkok and vicinity are invited to the police office at 11am,” he said.
Security has been tightened at the Royal Thai Police headquarters ahead of the expected crowd.
