NACC confirms giant firecracker hurled against STR protests from its compound

The spokesman of the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) confirmed Tuesday that an attacker hurled a giant firecracker against a rally site near the Government House Monday night.

Wicha Mahakhun, an NACC member and the spokesman, said the NACC had investigated the incident and found that hit happened at 11 pm.

Wicha said a person sneaked into the compound of the NACC and hurled a giant firecracker at the area in front the Bangkok Bank, Civil Service Commission branch, which is next to the NACC head office on Phitsanulok Road. A person was slightly injured by the giant firecracker.

Wicha said someone then fired about 100 rounds of gun into the fair to intimidate the security guards of the Students and People Network for Thailand's Reform (STR) to make way for the attacker to flee.
