Home of judge who removed Thai PM attacked


Bangkok, May 8 :

The home of the Thai Constitutional Court judge, who ordered the removal of Yingluck Shinawatra from the post of prime minister, was the target of a bomb attack Thursday.

A hand grenade was hurled into Suphot Kaimuk’s home in Bangkok around 2 a.m.

No one was, however, injured, The Nation reported.

The blast caused minor damage to the roof of a carport and to a vehicle parked inside.

A CCTV footage captured images of a suspect wearing a baseball cap throwing the explosive into Suphot’s home before running away.

Suphot was one of the Constitutional Court judges who Wednesday removed Yingluck and nine ministers for abuse of power.

Yingluck was found guilty of illegally transferring then National Security Council (NSC) chief Thawil Pliensri to an inactive post in 2011.
