A rally leader who blew whistle at ex-wife of fugitive Thaksin Shinawatra announced on Friday she decided to suspend her political activities following bomb attacks at her house and her mother's Khao Yai residence.
The suspension is for the safety of her family, her mother's and students of her mother's school, Taya Teepsuwan wrote on her Facebook page.
Taya, a former Bangkok deputy governor, and her husband; Nuthapol, were among a group of the anti-government protesters who blew whistles at Khunying Potjaman Na Pombejra at Emporium Shopping Complex late last month.
After that, assailants threw bombs into her Sukhumvit residence twice. Later attackers opened fires at Korat residence of her mother; Khunying Sasima Srivikorn, owner of Srivikorn School. No one was injured in those attacks.
Taya said in her Facebook that she made the decision out of concerns for the safety of the students of her mother's school.
