BANGKOK, Jan 9 – Caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra today expressed concern about possible infiltration by a third party when people take to the streets en masse to paralyse Thailand’s capital Monday.

She said the specially-established Centre for the Administration of Peace and Order (CAPO) will set up a war room at the National Police Bureau to closely monitor the situation, ensuring that the authorities will patiently provide full security, avoid clashes and abide by international standards in dealing with protesters.

“The public should not feel uneasy if the demonstrations are done without weapons or violence. In case of violence due to uncontrollable causes, we have to find out who instigated it,” she said.

Ms Yingluck called on all factions to maintain a peaceful situation and promised that the government will fully carry out its obligations, but “violence is sometimes the work of a third party which is a concern.” 

She said she did not believe the people are in favour of a coup and welcomed dialogue through a national reform forum.

“The answer to a resolution for the country does not rest with me. It’s a matter of how we can cooperate so that Thailand moves forward and protesters are satisfied. I’m ready to cooperate,” she said. (MCOT online news)
