Suthep Thaugsuban, the anti-government protest leader, has made his dismay know over the naming of the Red Bull founder Chaleo Yoovidhya among 22 major financial supporters of the People’s Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) by the Center for the Maintaining of Peace and Order (CMPO).

In a speech last night he said Mr Chaleo died on 17 March 2012 at the age of 89, and in a question directed at CMPO director Chalerm Yoobamrung asked – so how could he financially supported the PDRC.

suthepChaleo was revealed in the list of the first group of 22 major financiers of the PDRC in waging several month long protests against the government.
Suthep said such issuance of warrants by Chalerm was random and tantamount to merely bully businesses which operate legally in the country. It also showed the mentality of the issuer, he said.

He also said none of these major business named by the CMPO has neither directly nor indirectly supported the PDRC.

But he sarcastically thanked the CMPO head that such issuance would merely add more friends to the PDRC in naming them as financial supporter.

Among the major corporations that are summoned for questioning for their cash donations to the PRDC are those involving in soft drink, energy drink, department stores, hotel, consumer products, media, commercial bank, insurance firms and automobile industry.

Executives of Dusit Thani hotel were summoned to clarify the Department of Special Investigation for giving the PDRC to use its facilities and stay overnight.
