Court refuses to issue arrest warrants against Suthep

The Criminal Court refused to approve a Department of Special Investigation (DSI) request yesterday for arrest warrants for People's Democratic Reform Committee secretary-general Suthep Thaugsuban and 15 other protest leaders for violating the emergency decree.

The court said DSI director general Tarit Pengdith and a police investigator had failed to give enough evidence to back their case.

The DSI request cited 16 PDRC leaders suspected of actions that violated the emergency decree.
