Detention of first Bangkok bomb suspect approved

A Thai court on Saturday approved the detention of the first suspect arrested in connection with the deadly Bangkok shrine bombing for 12 days, the media reported.



Bangkok: A Thai court on Saturday approved the detention of the first suspect arrested in connection with the deadly Bangkok shrine bombing for 12 days, the media reported.

Police who brought the suspect to the Min Buri provincial court opposed bail. The court agreed and the man named on a fake Turkish passport as Adem Karadag, 28, was taken to the Min Buri prison in eastern Bangkok, the Bangkok Post reported. 

A suspect can be detained for up to seven 12-day periods or 84 days in total, before formal charges must be laid. 

Police spokesman Prawut Thavornsiri said officers were also seeking an arrest warrant for a 10th suspect, who was a foreigner. He declined to reveal his nationality. 

Karadag was arrested at an apartment in Nong Chok district of Bangkok on August 28. His nationality has still not been confirmed. 

Police and soldiers who raided the apartment found bomb-making material and dozens of fake Turkish passports. 

The bombing at the shrine on August 17 killed 20 people and injured over 150 others.
