The DSI has decided to press charges against him and 10 others in connection with City Hall's decision to grant a 30-year contract to skytrain operator Bangkok Transit System Co (BTSC).
MR Sukhumbhand, who is seeking a second term as governor, Wednesday threatened to file a counter-lawsuit against the DSI.
