BANGKOK, November 25. /ITAR-TASS /. Protesters in Thailand managed to break into the territory of the Ministry of Finance building in Bangkok. The opposition requires the agency’s staff “to stop working for the illegal government”. According to preliminary data, the protesters did not cause any damage, clashes with the police did not happen.
Rally participants oppose Thai government’s bonds with former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra. The stagers of the march believe the former PM continues to rule the country behind the scenes, despite the fact that he was forced into exile and settled abroad. Shinawatra was ousted in a military coup in 2006 and later sentenced in absentia to two years in prison for abuse of office.
The Thai government is now headed by his younger sister, Yingluck Shinawatra, and an absolute majority in the parliament has the Pheu Thai Party that does not conceal its support for the Shinawatra family.
