  • Description

    The wave of Asian student agitation against corruption in high places has now spread to Thailand. Yesterday (Wednesday) in Bangkok 3,000 students massed outside Parliament House to protest against alleged corruption at one of the city's universities.

    Student leaders, following the recent example of those in Manila and Djakarta, charged that some professors has misused university funds and demanded details of what happened to the rent which the university earned from shops on its land.

    Later students surged into the grounds of Parliament House and staged a sit-down protest. A few of them broke inside the building and looted the liquor store. Later, after the government promised an investigation into the charges, the students dispersed peacefully.
