THAILAND – Sirisak Tiyaphan, chief public prosecutor for foreign affairs, said yesterday that since 19 red-shirt leaders were indicted earlier this week over acts of terrorism as well as inciting unrest, public prosecutors would file formal requests with the countries that the defendants are believed to be living in. He added that some of these red-shirt leaders were believed to be living in a neighbouring country.
Department of Special Investigation (DSI) director-general Tharit Pengdit said yesterday that the agency was working closely with the police to nab red-shirt leaders who are hiding in Thailand.
Those known to be living outside the country include Thaksin, who is living in self-exile in Montenegro; and Arisman Pongruangrong, who was spotted at a hotel in the Cambodian province of Siem Reap. The public prosecutors will urgently seek their extradition, the DSI chief said.
