The Department of Special Investigation (DSI) has submitted the Wat Pathumwanaram murders case to the Attorney General's Office, recommending the prosecution of Abhisit Vejjajiva and Suthep Thaugsuban. 

Director-general Tarit Pengdit said the DSI recommended that Mr Abhisit be indicted as first defendant and Mr Suthep as second defendant on charges of collaborating to have other people kill others, and attempted murder under Sections 59, 80, 83, 84 and 288 of the Criminal Code.

Collectively known as the "six murders at Wat Pathum", the case involves six people who were found shot dead around noon on May 19, 2010, in the temple grounds during the last stage of the military crackdown on the long-running red-shirt protest.
