Bangkok, the 1st of August 2010:  Following the bombings along the Ratchadamri and Rangnam roads in the last week, police investigators suspect former aides of the deceased military Maj. Gen. Sawasdipol, better known as Sae Daeng. The former general was assassinated in the recent 10-week long political protests and was an avid supporter of the anti-government Red Shirt protesters.

In addition to the two bombings mentioned, the suspects are thought to be behind several other attacks on the capital, namely the explosion at the home of the chairman of the Election Commission.

Over 30 explosive experts and former officials are due to meet on Monday to discuss the cases and the explosive devices used. Further examination of the Ratchadamri bomb, exploded at a bus stop in front of Big C shopping center, has confirmed initial speculation that the device was similar in construction to at least four other bombing incidents.

Police have subsequently obtained the mobile phone number of their major suspect; know only as Mr. Pad, whilst a woman has allegedly come forth with “integral” information pertaining to the suspects.

Meanwhile, investigating officers working on Friday’s blast near the King Power Duty Free Shopping Mall on Rangnam Road have reportedly obtained a photograph of a potential suspect from CCTV footage in the area.

At present, the attacks have left one person dead and 11 others injured. The man injured in Friday’s attack remains in a critical but stable condition in a Bangkok hospital. He suffered severe shrapnel wounds in the blast and has since lost sight in his left eye.
