The parents of a boy who was killed as security forces moved in to clear the Ratchaprasong area during the political unrest of April-May 2010 claims not enough is being done to find the people responsible for their son's death. 

Pansak Srithep, 47, father of 17-year-old Samapan, who was killed during the melee on Ratchaprarop Road, said it has been draining for him and other families of those killed during the unrest to struggle to find witnesses willing to appear in court.

That job would normally be done by the Department of Special Investigation (DSI). He wants the government, who some see as coming to power because of the red-shirt protests, to do more to help, and said investigators could do more to help with the court cases.
