Bangkok, the 25th of June 2010 [Pattaya Daily News]: Still on the run following Tuesday’s blast near the Bhumjaithai Party Headquarters in Bangkok, police have obtained warrants for a further four suspects. Deputy Metropolitan Police Bureau Chief Major-General Sumet Ruangsawat revealed the suspects as; Mrs. Oor (surname unknown), Mr Uan (surname unknown), Mr. Korbchai Boonkrob and Mr. Samran (surname unknown).

Charges of making explosives, possessing an explosive device/s and causing an explosion in a public place have initially been levelled at all four of the suspects. Due to the nature of the incident and the fact that the four are allegedly Red Shirt sympathisers, terrorism inciting violence and break of the emergency decree charges may be considered at a later date.

Bangkok Metropolitan Police (BMP) already arrested two suspects directly involved with Tuesday’s bombing who are now remanded in custody awaiting further judicial proceedings. The two men, identified as Mr. Kampon Kamkong and Mr. Dejpon Bhudjong, were apprehended in Thailand’s eastern provinces of Chantha-Buri and Chacherngsao respectively.

Both Kampon and Dejpon have admitted to being involved with the explosion at the Bhumjaithai Party Headquarters and an attempted attack at another location in the capital. The pair later stated that the second explosive device had been abandoned in Soi Ramintra 81, after no orders from the fugitive four came through as to where to position the device. Mr. Anek Singkhuntod, the victim of Tuesday’s bombing, positively identified Kampon as being the man who had hired him to position his fruit-cart at the location on Tuesday.

In further links to the United Front for Democracy Against Dictatorship (UDD) both detained men have admitted to having met each other and the fugitive four suspects whilst attending the 2-month long Red Shirt protests in the capital recently. The duo claim that they had been encouraged to participate in the incidents to protest against the alleged double standards being practiced by the Abhisit Vejjajiva led government.
