A lawyer for the relatives of people killed inside Wat Pathumwanaram, in Ratchaprasong, on May 19, 2010 cut short testimony from military witnesses during the inquest hearing on Thursday morning. 

Three infantrymen were supposed to testify before the Southern Bangkok Criminal Court - sergeant majors  Samai Rakchat, Rakchat Jantaket, and Yongyos Phayakkreng. All are from the 31st Infantry, 2nd Regiment of the King's Guard.

Military sources said the relatives' lawyer accepted the witnesses' written testimony, saying they did not have to appear for oral cross-examination.
