NAKHON RATCHASIMA – Over 100,000 Redshirts are ready to descend on Bangkok if Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra is removed from her position in a key court ruling tomorrow, a Redshirt leader has claimed.

The Constitutional Court will rule on Wednesday whether Ms. Yingluck violated the 2007 Constitution by unlawfully replacing a former head of the National Security Council with her ally in 2011.

If found guilty, Ms. Yingluck will be removed from her caretaker position, and there is a possibility that her Cabinet members will be ousted as well.

Redshirt activists will not accept a guilty verdict, declared Anurat Thinnarat, the chairperson of northeastern Thailand’s chapter of the pro-government United Front of Democracy Against Dictatorship (UDD).

Mr. Anurat said that if Ms. Yingluck is removed, more than 100,000 UDD supporters from northeastern Thailand will immediately march to Bangkok for a massive rally with other Redshirts mobilised by UDD’s central chapter.

“We have completed all preparations [for the march],” Mr. Anurat claimed.

The UDD activist also warned the court not to attempt to replace Ms. Yingluck with an unelected Prime Minister.

“Such person will not be accepted by the UDD [supporters] across the country,” Mr. Anurat said. – by Khaosad News
