Court's inquest declines to rule 71-year-old man killed by troops
An inquest by the Criminal Court on a death of a red-shirt protester Wednesday ended in a suspense as the court could not determine who killed a 71-year-old man.
The South Bangkok Criminal Court stated following the inquest that it lacked enough evidences and information to determine who shot Boonmee Rermsuk.
Boonme was shot with a .223-caliber bullet at his stomach on May 14 2010. He died of blood infection on July 28 on the same year.
The court ruled that although .223-caliber bullets were used by troops, who were cracking down on the protesters, some troops were also shot by the same bullets. As a result, it could determine clearly that the old man was shot by a troop or not.
