Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra on November 7 appealed for an end to street protests against an amnesty bill, warning that the unrest would scare off foreign investors and tourists.

Protests affect the economy and hurt foreign investors’ confidence, and tourists will not dare to come, the Prime Minister said in a televised address.

The appeal was made right after an urgent security meeting convened by PM Yingluck.

Thousands of demonstrators have turned out daily in Bangkok since the Lower House on November 1 passed the bill.

Also the same day, the Democrats gave an ultimatum to the Puea Thai to scrap the amnesty bill, which is scheduled to be deliberated by the Senate on November 11.-VNA
