(27 February) Redshirts protesters have started construction of concrete barrier to seal off entrance to the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC).
The group, led by activists of the People′s Radio for Democracy (PRD), has been laying siege at the NACC to demand the same rights to protest in equal measure to the anti-government protesters who have been occupying a number of roads and closing down state agencies.
At the NACC, PRD activists mixed sand and other equipment for the concrete barrier, and requested that the NACC temporarily shut down its bureau until a new set of commissioners is appointed.
NACC has previously summoned Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra to hear her corruption charge over the rice-pledging scheme. Ms. Yingluck has declined to meet with the NACC and appointed a legal representative to hear the allegation.
