Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva will brief foreign envoys and representatives of international organizations in Thailand on the security operations during the recent violent movement of the anti-government protesters, the Thai News (TNA) reported on Wednesday.

The premier's briefing, which will be held on May 29, at 13:00 hours local time, at the Government House in central Bangkok, will also be taken part by both Thai and foreign media.

Security operations during the recent violent movement will be explained by the prime minister.

Premier Abhisit will answer all questions about the government' s measures to deal with the anti-government protesters and ousted former Thai Premier Thaksin Shinawatra.

The anti-government protesters had occupied the Rajprasong area, the main commercial area in central Bangkok, since early April before they ended their prolonged rally at 13:00 hours on May 19.

The death toll from a series of violent clashes between the anti-government protesters and troops in capital Bangkok during March 12 to May 19 stood at 88 as some 1,885 others were wounded, Public Health Minister Jurin Laksanawisit said on May 25.

The Criminal Court has approved arrest warrants against several anti-government major leaders, including Thaksin on terrorism charges, due to accused involvement in the recent violent movement, which culminated in the huge losses of lives and damages.

Thaksin was ousted by the military coup in September, 2006, in accusation of massive corruption, and kept in exile since then. Thaksin returned to Thailand in February, 2008 to face corruption charges, but he later fled into exile again and was convicted in absentia.
