Protest leader Suthep Thaugsuban threatened to seize all the assets of caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra if she still defies the call of the people to resign.

In a speech to several thousands of protesters at the Democracy Monument Saturday night, the secretary-general of the People’s Democratic Reform Committee said if the caretaker prime minister still clings to power arrogantly and ignores the people’s call, she will lose everything and will have to flee the country.

Suthep said once the people announce the victory over the Thaksin regime, all her assets would be seized.

The protest leader also disclosed that on the shutdown day, all major government offices will come under siege by protesters so as to prevent all officials to work or serve the caretaker government.

All major roads leading to government offices will be blocked and all government vehicles will not be allowed to pass, except city buses which will continue servicing the people.

He said houses of Ms Yingluck will also be blocked by an army of female protesters, of Surapong Tovichakchaikul, and of Kittirat na Ranong.

For Mr Surapong, also the foreign minister, Mr Suthep said he would see ”Hell on earth does exist and will experience it.

They will face mass protests that they have never seen or expected in their lives, Suthep said.

The mass protests will also be held at the homes of the national police chief and his two deputies, he said.

He also assured protesters that soldiers remain their good friends and wouldn’t harm the protesters, citing the riots in 2009 and 2010 that he and the armed forces had cooperated closely to protect the country from the rioters who now have become cabinet ministers.

Suthep insisted that the shutdown meant only to paralyze the government while business will be least affected.
