THAILAND : Home of Pojaman’s whistle attacker retaliated by deadly gunfire

The home of an anti-government protester’s mother in Nakhon Ratchasima was attacked by gunmen wielding M16 and AK47 assault rifles before dawn but caused no injuries to lives.

The protester Taya Theepsuwan and her husband, a former Democrat party MP, are among a dozen of people who blew whistles at Khunying Pojaman Na Pombejara last week at the Emporium department store.


After the whistle blowing, Taya posted on her Facebook page telling her mother, Khunying Sasima Srivikorn, the reason why she had to blow whistle at Khunying Pojaman.

Khunying Sasima was later reported to have apologized Khunying Pojaman for her daughter’s behavior as both Khunyings are friends.

Pojaman’s son Pantongtae Shinawatra or Oak, also posted on his Facebook page about the apology.

Pol Col Promdech Promijit, chief of Nakhon Ratchasima police said the attack on Khunying Sasima’s home occurred at about 3.00 a.m. Saturday.

He said a group of gunmen came near the house in a pick-up truck and then sprayed at the house with over a hundred rounds of ammunition and fled.
Nobody in the house was injured.
Local and forensic police arrived at the scene. They collected more than 30 spent shells  of M16 and AK47 assault rifle rounds.

The police officer said the police are looking into closed-circuit TV cameras in the area to hunt for the gunmen.
Taya and her husband are active members of the People’s Democratic Reform Committee  (PDRC).
