This morning at the People’s Alliance for Democracy stage located at the Government House, PAD Leader’s Major General Chamlong Srimuang and Somsak Kosaisuk (สมศักดิ์ โกศัยสุข) declared via the media that the 9 leaders of the PAD who have been recently issued with arrest warrants are ready to be taken custody by police. The two demonstration heads said they would await their arrest at the Government House and would not evade police.

Major General Chamlong however warned that if the PAD Leaders’ arrest entailed dissolving the rally, police would be considered responsible for any backlash by citizens in Bangkok and throughout the nation.
