Freeze on PDRC's bank accounts lifted

The Department of Special Investigation (DSI) has lifted the freeze on bank accounts of 38 core members of the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) and three other related accounts after the Civil Court issue an order that it allow Seri Wongmontha, one of the 38, to withdraw money from his accounts, DSI chief Tarit Pengdith said.

Mr Tarit, a member of the Centre for Maintaining Peace and Order, said the DSI had notified the CMPO of the action.

Although the freeze had been lifted, the CMPO would continue to watch the financial movements of these accounts since the 38 were suspects wanted under arrest warrants, Mr Tarit said.

Mr Tarit said following the PDRC's Bangkok shutdown operation a number of government offices had been closed by the protesters. However, the CMPO managed to reopen 53 offices for public services.

 After the Civil Court issued an order banning the CMPO from implementing its orders, the PDRC had returned to lay siege to the Customs Department, Foreign Ministry, Energy Ministry, Finance Ministry, Revenue Department, Public Works Department, Revenue Department, Voice TV, M Link Asia Corporation Plc and Shinawatra Tower 3.

The CMPO would appeal against the Civil Court's order in the hope it will allow a resumption of full operations, Mr Tarit said.

There are so many supposedly "independent” agencies colluding to oppose the concept of the little bit of representative democracy Thailand has. The fear of the people of Thailand by the wealthy families in control of these independent agencies has them manipulating whatever they can to crush the people's will. Actions like this naturally produce a rebel red shirt movement that opposes the obvious hypocrisy of agencies that have the duty to uphold the rights of Thai people, but allow their rights to be trampled on; apparently for their own good.

Disgusting. The Government is nowhere near the top of the list of Thai bodies that need reforming. Luckily it is not falling on deaf ears anymore. People are well onto the active participation and helping hands the PDRC receives from is elite friends.
