Speaking of the report on killing attempts against public figures, police revealed they have gathered information from the red-shirt protesters including the actor-turn-activist Methee Amornwutthikul, who were arrested during the April’s rally, about the terrorists clad in black. The latest report was on the suspect who had undergone weapon training in Cambodia and is now hiding in Thailand. This man is reportedly very skilled; however, the police already received his identity and whereabouts and is taking a close surveillance. Intelligence agency reports that the assassination rumor has been spreading since the anti-government demonstration occupied Bangkok’s Ratchaprasong Junction. The news says there is a group of perpetrators hiding in a luxurious high-rise apartment in Soi Sukhumvit 31 from which they can observe the premier’s residence clearly. The police have heightened the security around the prime minister’s premises and tasked a force to keep a close surveillance on the suspects. Besides the authorities have also assigned officers to guard the public figures, who reportedly have been targeted for assassination especially as the red-shirt rallies are approaching. -- NNT 2010-09-16 Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
