DSI to look who killed Seh Daeng

The Department of Special Investigation (DSI) this morning sends a team of officers to the crime scene where Army Specialist Major General Khattiya Sawasdipol was shot down on Thursday night.

According to DSI Spokesperson, Police Colonel Naracht Sawettanan, the case of last night’s attack on core figure of the anti-government United Front of Democracy Against Dictatorship (UDD) Major General Khattiya Sawasdipol, alias Seh Daeng, has been assigned to the DSI. A team of investigative officers have already been sent to the scene today to work on the case.

Seh Daeng, a key supporter of ousted premier Thaksin Shinnawatra, was shot in the head last night while giving an interview to foreign news correspondents in the city center of Bangkok, close to where the UDD amassed.

Maj Gen Khattiya had a brain operation last night and is still in a coma at a hospital. His condition is under a close medical monitoring.

Thai government will check what started the violence in Bangkok

The government has confirmed to investigate the recent violence in Bangkok on Thursday night, including the ambush plotted against Major General Khattiya Sawasdipol, alias 'Seh Daeng’.

Deputy Secretary-General to the Prime Minister and Acting Government Spokesperson, Dr Panitan Wattanayagorn, stated that the government would investigate the issue in order to prevent such incidents from re-occurring again in the future.

The deputy secretary-general expressed regret on the use of violence in the incidents; however, he noted that security officers must control the situation and prevent further violence in the country.

Upon international news reports that Major General Khattiya was sniped, Dr Panitan responded that the government could neither take any illegal action nor use any violent measures because the authorities must operate according to the procedures.

The spokesperson stressed that security officers could protect themselves upon any threats; however, they would have no rights to injure people in the rally site of the United Front of Democracy Against Dictatorship (UDD).

Regarding the movement of the UDD in other provinces, Dr Panitan replied that the government could control the situation and demonstration by the enforcement of the state of emergency in 17 provinces since Thursday night.
