Sudarat condemns bombers ‘playing games’ with people’s lives
The Pheu Thai Party’s chief strategist Khunying Sudarat Keyuraphan on Friday afternoon (August 2) condemned the people behind the series of bomb blasts in Bangkok, and called on the government to bring them to justice as soon as possible.
Sudarat said the issue was a serious one as it concerned the safety of Bangkok residents.
“I would like to send my moral support to Bangkokians and I would like to ask them to be careful, as we are still confused as to what has happened. We don’t know who played which game, but this was dangerous and people got hurt. This could cause losses to people’s lives and assets,” Sudarat said.
“I would like to call on the officials concerned, both the government and police and troops, to speed up efforts to find those who did it.”
She said the locations where the bombs were planted have security cameras, and so officials could check to make arrests as soon as possible.
“We, the people, want to find out what happened as soon as possible,” Sudarat said.
She also called on police to step up security by dispatching units to patrol various areas so that the people could be assured of their security.
“The security at various public places should be stepped up. And I would like to send my moral support to the officials who are working,” Sudarat added.
She said the bombs were definitely aimed at creating a situation to serve a certain purpose.
“There must be some people who gained something from the incidents. But the people are the ones who stand to lose We could not tolerate anyone seeking interest from this kind of incident by risking the lives of Thais and Bangkokians,” Sudarat added.
“No matter which game it was, anyone who stood to gain from creating this situation must be condemned. It’s very bad to play with the people’s lives and assets and morale to try to gain interest.”
