Abhisit flip-flop case forwarded to public prosecutor

On 19 Oct, Amornwan Charoenkij, a red-shirt vendor who was arrested for selling flip-flops with the faces of Abhisit Vejjajiva and Suthep Thaugsuban, reported to police in Ayutthaya as scheduled.  The police finished the indictment and forwarded the case to the public prosecutor on that day.  Surachet Chaikosol, Puea Thai MP for the province, bailed her out at the prosecution stage using his position as a guarantee.  Amornwan is required to report again on 21 Oct.
