Four men early on Thursday morning threw a molotov cocktail at the family home of Chitpas Bhirombhakdi, a former deputy Democrat Party spokeswoman and now one of core protest leaders under the anti-government People’s Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC).
The bottle filled with petrol and with a lit wick was thrown at the house in Ramkhamhaeng Soi 12 in Ramkhamhaeng area of Bangkok about 3.30am Thursday. The house belongs to Ms Chitpas's father Jutinan Bhirombhakdi.
The attack occurred about an hour after Ms Chitpas returned to the house.
For weeks, led by misogynist taunts and the posting of pictures taken from Ms. Chitpas' Facebook page with distasteful captions added by Thaksin Shinwatra lobbyist Robert Amsterdam's hired pen, Andrew McGregor Marshall, Chitpas Bhirombhakdi has been the target of harassment not focused on the message she's brought to the stage, but rather personal insults regarding her family, their business, and her trivial daily activities.
