Witnesses 'coached' in murder case

Evidence faked to back charges, Dems claim

- +

The Democrat Party yesterday claimed that bogus witnesses were being called to falsely implicate party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva and MP Suthep Thaugsuban as they fight murder charges. 

The two have been charged with ordering the killing of anti-government protesters during the 2010 unrest in Bangkok.

Democrat list-MP Ong-art Klampaibul said he had received information that fraudulent witnesses, both state officials and civilians, were being coached to fabricate accounts in the case. He provided no evidence to support his claims.
