The yellow-shirt People’s Alliance for Democracy (PAD) will not put to an end to its rally at Makkhawan Rangsan bridge rally site even though the prime minister had made known the House dissolution timeframe, PAD spokesman Panthep Puapongpan said on Saturday.

“The yellow-shirts will not disperse because Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva’s announcement on early house dissolution and election had nothing to do with the PAD’s demand for the protection of the country’s sovereignty,” said Mr Panthep.

He said since there will be a joint parliamentary sitting on March 22 to consider approving the memorandums of understanding made by the Thailand-Cambodia Joint Boundary Commission (JBC), PAD will hand over its warning letter to all MPs and senators before that day.

The letter will warn MPs and senators that if they give approval to thy MOU, Thailand will definitely lose its territory. If the MOU is approved, PAD will take legal action against all MPs and senators who voted in support of the MOU for violating the Articles 119 and 120 of the Criminal Code, the spokesman added.
