Blockade not affecting customs work

The blockade of the Customs Department will not affect the work of the department, the department's deputy director-general Yuthana Yimkarun said.

Mr Yuthana said this after holding talks with Sathit Segal, a People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) core member who led a group of protesters from Lumpini to lay siege to the Customs Department in Khlong Toey area.

He said the blockade would not disrupt shipments of goods since the department had taken measures to prevent that happening.  The protesters had agreed to return to Lumpini after the symbolic seizure, he added.

Mr Sathit said the PDRC only wanted to show it wants government officials to stand on the people's side but  would not do anything to harm the country's economy.
