Chalerm Yoobamrung, the director of the Centre for Maintaining Peace and Order, Monday threatened to crack down on protesters at any site whenever they are in small number.
“From now on, I’ll pounce on any rally site when there is small number of protesters,” an angry Chalerm said.
Chalerm, also caretalker labour minister, said he would act against protesters because Suthep Thaugsuban, secretary-general of the People’s Democratic Reform Committee, had breached his promise to rally only at Asoke intersection, Lumpini park, Ratchaprasong intersection and Pathumwan Intersection.
