Red-shirts lock anti-graft office

Red-shirt supporters from Nonthaburi have locked the entrance to the office of the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) to prevent commissioners from working.

United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) protesters led by Chavaris Suriya and Suthichai Phodaphol gathered in front of the NACC’s office on Nonthaburi Road in a rally to oppose the authority of the independent agency.

The NACC is currently investigating caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra over alleged dereliction of duty in connection with the rice-pledging scheme.

The protesters locked all entrances to the office with chains and are guarding the area to make sure that no officials are able to get in to work. If anyone wants to access or leave the building, they must seek permission from a UDD guard.
