Red shirts yesterday blocked the office of the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) to protest against the anti-graft panel’s decision to charge caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra in relation to the rice-pledging scheme. 

They vowed to continue their blockade until March 31, the deadline for Ms Yingluck to give her defence over the scheme.

Sornrak Malaithong, leader of the People’s Radio for Democracy Group (PRDG), yesterday led about 50 red-shirt demonstrators who had gathered at Sanambinnam intersection in Nonthaburi to the NACC office. They travelled on a six-wheel truck and a pickup truck equipped with loud speakers.
