A quick post just to note that The Nation reports that the “Department of Special Investigation, public prosecutors and police agreed … to file murder charges against former PM Abhisit Vejjajiva and his ex-deputy Suthep Thaugsuban in relation to crackdowns on red-shirt protesters in 2010.”

The charges will be that “Abhisit and Suthep would be charged in connection with the deaths of Phan Khamkong and Kunakorn Srisuwan, as well as with severe injuries sustained by Samorn Maithong.”

This decision will see Abhisit and Suthep summoned by DSI investigators, scheduled for 26 June, “so that they can be handed over to public prosecutors for arraignment.”

While DSI continues to say that “troops involved will not be charged, as they were carrying out orders,” the military brass remains as culpable as Abhisit and Suthep.
