Bangkok, the 12th of August 2010: Following the submittal of over 15,000 case files in relations to cases involving 25 Red Shirt leaders and key protesters in the April/May anti-government rallies, the OAG has indicted all 19 of the detained subjects on terrorism charges.

The 19 indicted suspects include; Veera Musikapong, Jatuporn Prompan, Natthawut Saikua, Weng Tojirakarn, Korkaew Pikulthong, Khwanchai Praipana, Yoswaris Chuklom (Jeng Dokchik), Nisit Sinthuprai, Karun Hosakul, Wiphuthalaeng Pattanaphumthai, Pichet Sukchindathong, Suksek Polsue, Jaran Loipoon, Amnat Inthachote, Chaiyut Laicharoen, Sombat Makthong, Surachai Thewarat, Rachata Wongyod and Yongyuth Thuammee.

Six other key figures in the United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) movement, Thaksin Shinawatra, Arisman Pongruengrong, Payap Panket, Adisorn Piangket, Pol Lt-Col Waipote Arpornrat and Suporn Atthawong are yet to be apprehended and as such have not yet been indicted by the OAG.  Deceased former military general Khattiya Sawasdipol, assassinated during the recent Red Shirt protests, was summarily omitted from the list.

All of the indicted figures had been investigated for their roles in inciting Red Shirt protesters in the recent anti-government rallies, which ended in violence and destruction of government buildings, department stores and a significant loss of military weaponry worth billions.

The cases being brought against the detained leaders include their involvement in the April 7th attack at Parliament House, a scuffle with military personnel at the First Army Region headquarter on April 10th and the invasion of the Thaicom Satellite ground station on the same day.

A court hearing has now been set for the 16th of August 2010.
