In a press conference held on Wednesday, Pheu Thai party leader Charupong Ruangsuwan denied he signed a document published by the press instructing red-shirt followers to provoke violence in order to force the military to endorse the invocation of the emergency decree to cope with the protests.
In the same document, it was alleged that the Pheu Thai party had set a 50-million baht bounty for the death of Suthep.
Charupong said that the document was fake and was meant to demonise the Pheu Thai party and to provoke chaos in the country.
Meanwhile, Ms Sunisa Lertpakawat, the government’s deputy spokesperson, accused ill-intent elements of trying to tarnish the reputation of the Pheu Thai party and to provoke misunderstanding among the protesters.
She also denied that the party was behind the incident at a press conference held by the Democrat party on Tuesday to present its reform blueprint in which a man blew a whistle at Democrat party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva and criticized the party.
