Thai protesters threaten to close stock exchange

Stock Exchange of Thailand_Arno Maierbrugger Anti-government protesters in Thailand announced they will close the entrance of the Stock Exchange of Thailand in Bangkok if caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra refuses to resign until January 15, a new deadline given to her.

The blockade would be carried out by the Students and People Network for Thailand’s Reform (SPNTR). Student leaders said that the stock market has to be sacrificed because Thai investors are still ignoring the situation and the protesters viewed the stock market as the “heart” of the Thaksin Shinawatra regime, because former prime minister was still able to participate in the capital markets from overseas.

Upon learning of the threat, the Stock Exchange of Thailand send messages to its officials, allowing the majority of personnel to work from home on January 13.

Another serious thread was to block the Aeronautical Radio of Thailand, which is in sole charge of all communications between aircraft and air traffic controllers in Thailand. This would bring air traffic in Bangkok to a complete halt. Upon the announcement, soldiers have been stationed to protect the radio station.
