National Police chief Pol Gen Adul Saengsingkaew met four representatives of the Peoples' Democratic Reform Committee on Wednesday afternoon and promised to speed up investigations into the killing of children at rally sites.
Adul met the four representatives of the PDRC inside the Royal Thai Police compound after PDRC secretary general Suthep Thaugsuban led protesters to rally there at 10am. Suthep demanded that police speed up their investigations and arrest the attackers whose actions led to the deaths of four children – two in Bangkok and two in Trat.
Suthep could not meet Adul himself because the PDRC leader has an arrest warrant hanging over his head. The PDRC was thus represented by Chaiwut Bannawat, Sakonthee Phatthiyakul, Thaya Teepasuwan and Jitpas Krissadakorn.
Adul promised that police would do their best to investigate cases of political violence.
Adul also asked the four representatives to tell the PDRC to allow police to inspect the scenes at rally sites when violence occurs. He said police were always blocked by security guards from entering the rally sites.
The PDRC protesters said they were happy that Adul came out in person to receive the demands from the four representatives.
The protesters left the front of the Royal Thai Police at 1,20pm.
