Prayuth asked to probe DSI reports

Posted by arnon_k On December - 24 - 2010

The anti-government United Front for Demcracy against Dictatorship on Friday submitted a letter to army chief Prayuth Chan-ocha asking him to look into Department of Special Investigation’s reports on military actions taken against the red shirts during the April-May protests.

The letter was submitted by UDD spokesman Worawut Wichaidith, who was accompanied by about 20 red shirts, and received by Maj Benja Plook-aram, a senior army duty officer.

Mr Worawut said the letter to Gen Prayuth was accompanied by a copy of Deputy Prime Minister Suthep Thaugsuban’s order for the DSI to investigate military operations against the red shirts during April-May and the deaths of six people in Wat Pathumwanaram temple on May 19 and Japanese photo-journalist Hiroyuki Muramoto at Khok Wua intersection on April 10.

Gen Prayuth was asked to look into the DSI reports and provide explanation on the reported military actions, he said.

The UDD spokesman also called for a House dissolution and new general election to return justice to the people.

Mr Worawut reaffirmed that the red shirts would rally on Jan 9, not Jan 10 as earlier scheduled, in remembrance of those killed on April 10.
