Thailand Pro-Democracy Protesters Gather in Front of German Embassy in Bangkok

Protesters held a demonstration in front of the German embassy to ask Berlin to look into the matter of His Majesty the King living in Germany.

Protesters held a demonstration in front of the German embassy to ask Berlin to look into the matter of His Majesty the King living in Germany and to force Thai Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha to step down. 

The protesters marched from the Samyan intersection to the Rama IV Road before they reached the German embassy on Sathorn Road.

Earlier during the day, Nititorn Lumlua, a lawyer and a member of the Royalist group went to the embassy before the scheduled 5 pm protest to allegedly supply Germany with accurate information about the political situation in Thailand.

Anticipating the protest, the German embassy released a statement calling for a peaceful gathering by the protesters and protection of its premises by the government under the Vienna Convention.

 “The Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany recognizes the right of peaceful assembly of the citizens of the Kingdom of Thailand, including in proximity to the embassy,” said the letter.

Despite the continuous protests Chan-ocha has not yet announced any plans to step down.
