RWB on re-examing April-May 2010 deaths

23 09 2011

Reporters Without Borders posts on the ” surprising U-turn, Department of Special Investigation chief Tharit Pengdit told Agence France Presse on 17 September that the army was responsible for the fatal shooting of Japanese cameraman Hiroyuki Muramoto during clashes … in Bangkok on 10 April 2010.”

As RWB states, “the DSI previously reported on 24 March that forensic tests had established that the round that killed Muramoto, who worked for Reuters, came from a type of gun that the army had not been using that day.”

This development is worth watching as Tharit slinks over to the “other side,” seeking to keep his job.
