BANGKOK, THAILAND – A second British man has been arrested in Thailand for alleged involvement in violent anti-government “Red Shirt” protests earlier this year, police said Thursday.
Keith Wayne Bush, 49, from Manchester was arrested on arson charges at Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport on Wednesday after arriving on a flight from the United Arab Emirates, according to immigration police.
His Thai wife, Alisa Bush, 33, was also arrested after she went to the airport to meet him.
A court in northern Chiang Mai province approved arrest warrants for the pair on May 28 for allegedly trying to burn down a town hall, participating in an illegal rally and inciting unrest,” said Police Colonel Pakpong Sai-ubon.
“Both denied all the charges,” he said.
