Abhisit, Suthep to face more charges

- +

The Department of Special Investigation is pondering also bringing attempted murder and bodily assault charges against former prime minister Abhisit Vejjajiva and his former deputy Suthep Thaugsuban, DSI chief Tarit Pengdit said on Tuesday. 

Mr Tarit said that in addition to those killed, about 1,500 people were injured in the government action against United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship protesters during April-May 2010.  About 700 of them were seriously hurt.

For the 700 seriously injured, the DSI was considering filing attempted murder charges against the two Democrats.  They might also face assault charges for hurting the others.
