(26 December) Unidentified assailants have sprayed rounds of M16 rifle on the residence of a prominent anti-government activist.
The incident reportedly took place at approximately 01.00 this morning at the house of Mr. Satit Wongnongtoey, a co-leader of People′s Committee for Absolute Democracy With the King As Head of State (PCAD), in Trang province.
Police found "numerous" bullet cases of M16 rifle and 11mm. handgun in front of Mr. Satit′s residence; Mr. Satit claimed over 20 rounds have been fired. The house and the nearby local office of Democrat Party were damaged by the gunfire, but no injury has been reported.
Mr. Satit, who recently resigned from his post as Democrat MP, said he believed the attack was politically motivated, as he has no business conflict with anyone. "I only have a kindergarten business," Mr. Satit said.
He added that he has been an MP for many terms but such blatant attack has never been against him.
"It′s only after I campaign against the government this incident happened," said the PCAD leader.
