Noppadon denies Thaksin hired 'men in black' to attack protesters

Noppadon Pattama, a legal advisor of former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra, said Thaksin did not hire men in black to attack protesters from high-rise buildings.

Noppadon said the allegation made by the People's Democratic Reform Committee that Thaksin hired men in black to be stationed on rooftops at 40 spots around Bangkok was unfounded.

He said Thaksin did not support the use of violence and would never commit violence.

He said Thaksin has been monitoring the situation in Thailand with concern ad would like to call all sides to respect the people's voice made via an election.
