A small group of Thai anti-government demonstrators on December 12 briefly intruded into the compound of the Thai Government House, said witnesses.

The protestors removed a barbed-wire barricade in front of the compound in central Bangkok and scaled a wall to enter it. They asked the police who were being deployed there to retreat to police stations.

No confrontation occurred between the protesters and police

Also the same day, former Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva was indicted for murder in connection with a deadly military crackdown on mass opposition protests in Bangkok three years ago, said spokesman for the attorney general's office Nanthasak Poonsuk.

Under Abhisit's government, more than 90 people died and nearly 1,900 were wounded in street clashes in the capital in 2010 between mostly unarmed pro-Thaksin "Red Shirt" demonstrators and security forces.

Prosecutors have accused Abhisit and his former deputy Suthep Thaugsuban of issuing orders that resulted in murder and attempted murder by the security forces.

Suthep also faces a murder charge but has asked the court to postpone his hearing. He is now spearheading the mass opposition protests against Yingluck.

Meanwhile, the Bangkok Post on December 12 cited deputy army spokesman Winthai Suwari as saying that Thailand's top military brass will discuss whether to meet with anti-government protest leaders.-VNA
