Natthawut Saikua, a red-shirt leader, said that the red shirts would hold their demonstration outside the bank’s head office in the Silom business area from noon to 6pm. He said the bank was one of Prem’s major financiers that also received benefits in return.
Bangkok Bank is one of the country’s largest commercial banks.
Natthawut accused the chief privy councillor of “spending his life like a politician” – getting support from financiers and paying back favours in return.
The red-shirt leader yesterday vowed to continue his crusade to expose suspicious funds involving the chief royal adviser. Natthawut said he was not satisfied with a simple explanation that the money conveyed through Prem was earmarked for charities.
