` Grenades are thrown at the offices of `Thailand’s Anti-Corruption Agency ‘ by Protesters over Corruption ‘

#AceFinanceNews – THAILAND – March 28 – Grenades were thrown at the offices of Thailand’s anti-corruption agency, police said on Friday.

The National Anti-Corruption Commission earlier summoned the prime minister to answer charges of dereliction of duty next week, Reuters reported.

Nobody was injured in the overnight attack, the second on the agency’s offices this week.

The commission is examining the alleged failure of Yingluck Shinawatra to stop corruption and stem huge losses in a government rice-buying program.

Ace Related News – March 12 – 09.41 GMT – #AceWorldNews – Bangkok – Rice producers participating in anti-government protest rally in the Thai capital have caused a blackout in the Trade Ministry headquarters, MCOT news agency reported on Wednesday.

In February, the Thai government managed to negotiate with an initiative group of farmers a schedule for paying debts in order to avoid mass protests in Bangkok, where thousands of farmers were ready to go to demand their money to be paid immediately.

Meanwhile, not all the farmers agreed to wait. http://wp.me/pzTwj-2CR
