The South Bangkok Criminal Court on Monday ruled that two red-shirt protesters of the United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) were shot dead by soldiers during the military crackdown in April 2010. 

The two red-shirts were Charoon Chaimaen, 46, and Sayam Watanukul, 52.

Prosecutors asked the court to verify the identities of the two men, to establish the cause of death and those responsible.  Both were hit by bullets in front of Satree Withaya School on Din So road during a military crackdown on the protest on April 10, 2010.
