Missing 2010 crackdown witness emerges from Army custody

Khaosod English: A witness of the deadly military crackdown on Redshirt protesters in 2010 emerged from six days of military detention today, a day after the junta denied any involvement in her arrest.

Nattathida Meewangpla, 36, was arrested at her residence in Samut Prakarn by five soldiers on 11 March and had been detained in communicado since. 

Nattathida emerged on Tuesday morning when police brought her to the headquarters of the Bangkok Metropolitan Police Bureau in a van belonging to the 11th Army District. She flashed the outlawed anti-coup salute several times while police escorted her to an interrogation room. 

She was brought to the police HQ with two suspects accused of participating in the grenade attack on a Bangkok court house earlier this month. 
 
Police officers told reporters that Nattathida and the two other suspects were transferred from military to police custody today. They did not say whether Nattathida has been charged with any crimes.
