Red Shirt group rallied at the headquarters of the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) and called on members, specially Amara Pongsapich (Chairperson), to resign en masse for its “distorted” conclusion on the 2010 political protest.
Pongpisit Kongsena, leader of the People’s Power Alliance, spoke through a loudspeaker, charging the NHRC members with tarnishing the commission’s reputation for its latest report on the political rally by the United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) on March 12-May 19, 2010.
They said the NHRC was obliged to protect the people’s rights but its members failed to fulfill their duties.
In a sarcastic gesture, they handed over a batch of resignation letters and applications as members of the Democrat Party to the NHRC members. Abhisit and Suthep are both Democrat MPs.
Kanchai Kongsaneh, NHRC deputy secretary general, received the protesters’ letter and promised to forward it to the commission.
The protesters dispersed without any violence.
