    Latest casualty figures of Bangkok Shutdown: 23 dead, 768 wounded

     

    ‎Bangkok's Erawan Emergency Medical Centre reported from November 30 last year, the casualty statistic: 23 dead and 768 injured as a result of protests caused by the so-called People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC).

     

    On several confrontation between PDRC mob against the Royal Thai Police have left several police officers dead and wounded from the assault by armed protesters. Other interrelated gang violence among conflicting members of PDRC and between pro-democracy supporters of the present Caretaker Government have added to the casualty rate.

     

    Critics have placed some blame on the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA), accusing city hall of being pro-PDRC and ignoring the plights of concerned residents about the growing violence.

     

    The Governor of Thailand capital city has denied these allegations, despite being a senior member of the Democrat Party which has supported PDRC's call for insurrection and overthrow of democratic institutions. The latest figure on casualties have added to the growing concerns of "civil war" or a "judicial coup" in Thailand, which is a member state of the regional grouping, ASEAN.

     

    The United Nations Secretary-General, Mr. Ban, and the Caretaker Prime Minister, Ms. Yingluck Shinawatra , have condemned the violence snowballed from PDRC promise of replacing democracy with an unelected council.
