BANGKOK: Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra has dismissed attempts by those opposed to the Thai-Malaysian gas pipeline to win the support of the international community to get the project scrapped, vowing it will go ahead.  

While insisting that the government would not violate the human rights or freedom of expression of the opponents, and dismissing reports that a government adviser had called for the use of force against them, Thaksin warned yesterday that protesters who broke the law would face prosecution.
