Red Shirt Families Request Autopsy Order from Criminal Court

On Monday, Red Shirt legal representatives led the families of nine persons killed in the April 10 clashes at Khok Wua intersection to the Thai Criminal Court. The families are seeking court orders for post-mortem examinations on their deceased relatives who were killed in the violent Bangkok clashes between Red Shirt protesters and military personnel.

Bangkok, the 6th of September 2010: Karom Ponthaklang, the United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) lawyer, asked the court for autopsies to be carried out on the nine deceased bodies with independent international forensic experts overseeing the examinations.

The nine bodies are claimed to be key evidence in the case against the government over responsibility for the deadly April 10 incident, which left 26 dead and more than 800 injured. The deceased are currently being held at several temples awaiting autopsy.

The families of the deceased, eager to hold cremation ceremonies for their relatives fear that if autopsies are not performed prior to the funerals, key evidence in the case against the government may be lost.

Meanwhile, talks of reconciliation meetings between the opposition Puea Thai Party and Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva have been stalled, with the premier explaining that no official contact has been received from the opposition.

The PM’s remarks come after the opposition party last week offered a five-point proposal seeking talks with the government in an attempt to resolve the ongoing political tensions affecting the nation.
