'Help being blocked'

On television yesterday, caretaker Public Health Minister Pradit Sinthawanarong and Defence Ministry spokesman Surachat Chitchaeng condemned those blocking the transportation of injured people to hospital.

Insisting that it was the Public Health Ministry's duty to take care of all wounded people without discrimination, Pradit condemned people for shooting at and obstructing the helicopter that was sent to move Pol Senior Sgt-Major Narong Pitisit out of the protest site after he was shot on Thursday. "This shouldn't happen in Thailand, there should never be violence against those who try to save the wounded," he said.
