Estimated read time 1 min read

At the censure debate last night, opposition MPs accused PM Abhisit Vejjajiva of ordering the killing of red-shirt protesters last year as well as orchestrating the arson attack on Central World to justify the crackdown.

Abhisit and his deputy, Suthep Thaugsuban, denied the charges and instead put the blame on the red shirts.

“If I was told to order the killing [of red-shirt protesters], I wouldn’t do it,” Pheu Thai MP for Udon Thani, Vichian Khaokham, said, after claiming that Abhisit had been instructed by “an older person” to “order the killings”.
