Thai prosecutors said
Wednesday they would indict 19 leaders and supporters of the anti-government “Red Shirt” movement on terrorism charges in connection with recent political unrest. They include three key protest leaders — Red Shirt chairman Veera Musikapong, opposition lawmaker Jatuporn Prompan and Kokaew Pikulthong, who stood as an opposition candidate in a recent Bangkok by-election.
The suspects have already been arrested and charged and many have been held in detention for almost three months.
“Evidence from investigators shows that there are sufficient grounds to indict the suspects on terrorism charges,” the Office of Attorney General said in a statement.
