DSI seeks detention of suspects in arms raid


The Department of Special Investigation (DSI) on Saturday sought a court order for the first round of 12-day detention of the nine suspects accused of being involved in amassing weapons unearthed during raids last weekend.

The DSI wants to interrogate them as it suspects an attempt to revive the political conflicts of the past.
Investigators reportedly opposed attempts to seek bail for the accused.
The nine suspects – seven men and two women – are charged with illegal possession of weapons and criminal association. Yesterday, they were handed over to the police by the military and made to appear at the press conference at the Crime Suppressions Division headquarters.
In addition to the nine arrested, police are still seeking four others – a woman and three men, including Ko Tee, 48, who is wanted for possessing unregistered weapons and ammunition without permission.
