Three protesters injured in clash with red shirts in Pathum Thani

BANGKOK: -- Three anti-government protesters were injured in Pathum Thani Thursday when their group was confronted by local red-shirt people, leading to a clash.

The group of 100 protesters was marching to rally at the Pathum Thani City Hall at 2:30 pm when some 300 protesters rushed to them in an apparent intimidating manner.

Initially, some 300 policemen at the scene managed to prevent the red shirts from attacking the protesters. But after two sides dispersed in small groups, a group of protesters was attacked by another group of red shirts, causing three protesters to be injured.

PWO claims packed rice scheme is transparent

185899-imagepng-274031-1-wpcf_728x413.jp

THAILAND: -- The Public Warehouse Organisation has insisted that the packed rice scheme is transparent and that the 970,000 packages of packed rice have not gone missing as alleged by the Democrat party.

Responding to the Democrat MPs’ accusations made during the censure debate in the parliament that the packed rice programme was rife with massive corruption and that a huge amount of packed rice had disappeared, PWO director Chanutpakorn Wongsrinil categorically denied all the accusations and claimed that the scheme was transparent and was undertaken properly from the selection of companies to join the scheme and choice of the distributors.

He said he had checked the memorandum of the companies and didn’t find any board members with close connection with the PWO board members.

As for the 970,000 packages of packed rice bought from the PWO by the Islamic committee of Nakhon Si Thammarat, Mr Chanutpakorn said that some 500,000 packages had already been delivered to the buyer with the rest yet to be delivered pending payments.

However, he said that PWO had set up a committee to investigate an allegation that one distributing company did not sell packed rice to the consumers but to the millers instead.

2.5 million tonnes of rice have been allocated to make packed rice of which 1.1 million tonnes have already been released from the warehouses. Of the 1.1 million tonnes released, 590,000 tonnes have been packaged into packed rice.

Red shirts clash with protesters in Pathum Thani

Three people were slightly injured during a clash between red-shirt followers and anti-government protesters in front of Pathum Thani provincial hall Thursday.

The violent incident started when about 200 red shirts shouted abuses and threw bottled water at about 100 protesters who rallied in front of the provincial hall to submit a statement to the governor.

Then the two groups engaged in fist fights briefly before police arrived at the scene to separate them.

Police reinforcements were later deployed in front of the provincial hall to prevent possible clash between the two rival groups.

The injured were later sent to the provincial hospital for medical treatment. Their injuries were minor.
