The Criminal Court on Wednesday approved a warrant for the arrest of Suthep Thaugsuban on charges of murder and attempted murder in ordering the crackdown on red-shirt protesters in April-May 2010 at the request of the Department of Special Investigation (DSI). 

The other defendant in this case is former prime minister Abhisit Vejjajiva, who has already been indicted on the same charges in the Criminal Court.

Mr Suthep, who was director of the Centre for the Resolution of the Emergency Situation (CRES) in 2010, had been summonsed to report to the prosecutors for indictment and his requests for a delay had earlier been granted.
