Democrat leader Abhisit Vejjajiva and the party's MP for Surat Thani Suthep Thaugsuban Monday testified to the Department of Special Investigation over the crackdown on the red-shirt rallies. 

They were both confident they demonstrated that they had acted legally.

The two men, who were in charge of directing state measures against the demonstrators, are accused by the red shirts of involvement in the 91 deaths of protesters and soldiers, most of which took place during clashes at the Khok Wua and Ratchaprasong intersections in April and May 2010.
