DSI denies targeting Abhisit, Suthep

- +

The Department of Special Investigation is only performing its duty as a law enforcement agency and has not targeted former prime minister Abhisit Vejjajiva and his deputy Suthep Thaugsuban for premeditated murder charges as alleged, DSI chief Tarit Pengdit said on Thursday. 

Mr Tarit said the DSI is a law enforcement agency. Once legal cases in connection with the United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) protests are categorised as special cases the DSI is duty-bound to proceed with legal action against all sides in the conflict.

A total of 213 cases have been filed against UDD members. They include 64 terrorism cases, 62 arson cases and 87 other related cases, he said.
