Pressure mounts on Thai PM


Abhisit, who came to power in 2008 when the army brokered a deal in parliament, would have to step down if the Constitutional Court, following the Election Commission’s findings, found his Democrat Party guilty of funding irregularities.

The red shirts, who want Abhisit to quit now, said they would step up their protest, after their month-long rally turned violent on Saturday, with plans to send out hundreds of motorcyclists handing out leaflets and pictures from the clashes.

“We are also contemplating a march to the 11th Battalion to ask Abhisit and the army he is hiding behind for an answer,” red shirt leader Nattawut Saikua told reporters. Abhisit has mostly operated from the base since the protests began.
The red shirts say troops gunned down protesters, but the government says shadowy “terrorists” were responsible.
