Dem MP indicted for murder

Dem MP indicted for murder

Democrat MP Khanchit Thapsuwan was indicted in the Samut Sakhon Court on Thursday on a charge of murdering Udon Kraiwatnussorn, former president of the provincial administration organisation, on Dec 26 last year.

Mr Khanchit reported to police on Tuesday to hear the murder charge after the House of Representatives went into recess and his parliamentary immunity lapsed.

He was taken to the prosecution office today and then indicted for trial in the provincial court.

At the court he applied for bail, using his MP position as collateral, and received court approval.

The MP was ordered to appear before the court again on July 19 at 1pm.

Mr Khanchit declined to speak to reporters, saying he would testify only in court.
