A video posted on YouTube making death threats against former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra is a fake and was made by members of the anti-government white-mask group, National Security Council secretary-general Paradorn Pattanatabut said on Sunday.
"The people who made the video clip are nothing more than a group of people who want to bring down Thaksin," Lt Gen Paradorn said. "When the video was uploaded, the white-mask people posted it on their Facebook pages and were having a good time criticising Thaksin."
He said problems in Thailand's three southern border provinces are not caused by al-Qaeda or Thaksin alone, but by problems inside the Thai state, in relation to the movement of the Malayu people.
