Five Cambodians caught for attempting to torch protest stage

Five Cambodians have been arrested by protest guards at Ratchadamnoen Avenue for allegedly attempting to torch the protest stage on December 5 on the occasion of His Majesty the King’s birthday.

According to Suthep Thuagsuban’s Facebook page, the Cambodians admitted that they were hired by a village headman in Pathum Thani to set afire the protest stage at the Democracy Monument.

No details were available about the identities of the Cambodians or the paymaster.  But maps showing the sites where the group was to cause troubles were found in their possession.
