The Thai government is well prepared to control a political rally which might be organized on Friday, Deputy Prime Minister in charge of security affairs Suthep Thaugsuban reaffirmed Tuesday.

It is possible the red-shirted supporters of anti-government United front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) will stage the rally, Thai News Agency reported.

The political situation is increasingly intense ahead of a court verdict on whether or not to seize ousted premier Thaksin Shinawatra's frozen asset Friday.

It is feared the political conflict will affect the country's economic recovery trend.

The Thai government is not enemy of the red-shirted people, but the government will not let any violence occur, Suthep said.

The Supreme Court's Criminal Division for Holders of Political Positions will deliver the verdict for the 76 billion baht (2.29 billion U.S. dollars) asset seizure case of Thaksin on Feb. 26.
