People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) secretary-general Suthep Thaugsuban has cancelled the plan to lay siege to the Centre for Maintaining Peace and Order (CMPO) at the Narcotics Suppression Bureau on Vibhavadi Rangsit road out of concern for the safety of the protesters, reports said. 

Issara Somchai, PDRC leader at the Lat Phrao rally site, confirmed the reports.

He said continued violence caused PDRC leaders to decide not to blockade the CMPO as earlier planned.
