The Criminal Court in Bangkok on Thursday acquitted red-shirt supporter Amporn Jaikorn, 56, of involvement in an explosion at an apartment building which killed four people and injured nine others in Nonthaburi province in 2010.

The court ruled that the prosecution had presented only two police officers as witnesses. One of them only received reports on the explosion, and the other inspected the bomb scene afterwards. There was no eyewitness, and Ms Amporn had denied any involvement.
