Abhisit, Suthep formally deny charges

- +

Abhisit Vejjajiva and Suthep Thaugsuban on Thursday formally denied the murder charges laid against them by the Department of Special Investigation (DSI), Democrat Party deputy leader Thavorn Senneam said. 

Mr Thavorn, a member of the Democrat Party's legal team, said the plea was entered after the former prime minister and former deputy prime minister were notified of the charges of murder relating to the death of a taxi driver shot dead during the 2010 riots.

The two men refused to sign a paper acknowledging conditions for their not being detained.  The condititons would  prohibit them from travelling out of the country without approval from investigators, from meddling with evidence, obstructing the investigation into the case, or doing anything which could cause serious damage.
