BANGKOK - The additional lawsuits filed with the Department of Special Investigation (DSI) by victims of the crackdown on the red-shirt protesters in 2010 were not unexpected, Democrat Party legal adviser and Songkhla MP Wirat Kanyasiri said on Friday.
Mr Wirat said former prime minister Abhisit Vejjajiva and his ex-deputy Suthep Thaugsuban were just doing their duty at the time of the protests, with no intention to kill anyone.
He said legal expert Bandit Siriphan will join the opposition Democrat Party's legal defence team.
