Update: Terrorist PAD Holding Planes Hostage; Threatening to Shut Seaports

AOT chief to seek permission to fly 88 empty commercial planes from Suvarnabhumi

The Nation

Serirat Prasutanond, president of Airports of Thailand Plc, said Sunday that he will seek permission from the People's Alliance for Democracy again Sunday to retrieve 88 commercial planes left unattended at the Suvarnabhumi International Airport.

Serirat said he had tried several times earlier but failed to convince PAD leaders at the airport to allow airlines' officials to fly the empty planes from the airport.

He said airlines, which own the planes, need them to fly their passengers left stranded in several provinces around the country.

"We need to take the planes out of the airport as soon as possible for fear that the planes will be damaged," Serirat said.

The PAD refuses to give the airlines their planes back( planes worth hundreds of millions of dollars) and the courts still won't revoke their bail and the world remains silent.

The PAD is also threatening to close the seaports if their current terror doesn't work.

One has to wonder why the foreign embassies and the international community have given the PAD a free ride, considering the PAD has broken multiple Thai and international terrorism laws and international travel treaties.
