Protesters head to police HQ

Protesters travelled in a procession of vehicles to the Royal Thai Police headquarters on Rama I road on Wednesday morning, to follow up on the investigation into the death of a Ramkhamhaeng University student during a clash at the university on Nov 30.

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.

During this "clash" a number pf people were killed. I trust that the police devote equal time, effort and resources to investigating each death and are not bullied into giving any preference.

Enough is enough. Why being blind on worse situation of economic stagnation in Bangkok city? Tourist industry faces the worse year on year. Retail and hotel financial loss is enormous. Keep dragging on to hold protest, can find any sustainable solution to reform politically in a period of one night? None! Merely imbecility is seen and immaturity of civil knowledge is being intact unbreakable to be lack of self evolution practically.

I would have a lot more sympathy for them if they were asking the police to push forward investigations into all the people who died that day, namely the three red shirts. I can imagine why they regard those deaths as not worthy of inquiry.

The Metropolitan Police Chief Lieutenant General Kamronwit Thoopkrajang has his job because Thaksin gave it to him. Why would anybody expect from him to investigate some people who are connected to his sponsor? I suggest the protesters have a word with Kamronwit – that could be interesting…
