Four protesters held over slew of charges


BANGKOK police arrested four pro-democracy protesters for allegedly destroying state property.

Pol Maj-General Jirasan Kaewsangek, deputy commissioner of the Metropolitan Police Bureau, claimed the suspects had destroyed a police vehicle and a traffic booth at the Phya Thai intersection on Sept 29. He also accused them of lobbing firebombs at the Phya Thai Police Station on Oct 1.

The protests were held at three sites on Saturday, namely the Bangkok Remand Prison, Supreme Court and Din Daeng intersection.

Jirasan said police officers along with Bangkok Metropolitan Administration and National Housing Authority officials visited residents in Din Daeng flats on Friday to ensure their safety. — The Nation/ANN
