Jatuporn told red shirts not to rally today at Constitutional Court

Red-shirt followers were told not to rally in front of the Constitutional Court today but to join a mass rally planned for this coming Saturday at Aksa or Utthayarn road.

United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) chairman Jatuporn Promphan told his supporters at a rally site in Nonthaburi Tuesday night that there was no need for red-shirt supporters to go to the Constitutional Court today because the court is not “honourable” enough for the red shirts to visit.

He urged the red shirts to join the mass rally on Saturday as earlier planned and said that the mass rally would continue until the red shirts win the battle.

“We know that we will go to Aksa road on May 10 to protest against a neutral prime minister, against a coup.  If there is no elected prime minister, there is no need to have a government and we will be the only country which has no prime minister just say for three years.  Then we will see how devastating will be for our economy,” Jatuporn told his supporters.

The Constitutional Court is due to deliver a ruling at noon on Thawil Pliensri’s case in which caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra was accused of misuse of authority in the removal of Thawil as the secretary-general of the National Security Council over two years ago.
