Red warriors are planning to wreak havoc on the country again, a security source said yesterday.
The information came from Kittichai Jansawasdee, who was arrested on Saturday afternoon after trying to escape from a red-warrior den in Chiang Mai, the source said.
When Kittichai reportedly asked for directions from locals, he looked so suspicious that they alerted their village head, who later sent him to police. The source said that during police interrogation, Kittichai confessed that he had been staying with 12 other red warriors at a resort in Chiang Mai since September 7 but could no longer bear the intense pressure there.
“He said he was homesick and was beaten too. All red warriors have received weapons training on the Thai-Cambodian border before,” the source said.
