Deputy police spokesman Kritsana Pattanacharoen, while briefing about progress in investigations into the shooting incident, said on Wednesday (November 13) that Thanakorn was arrested in the morning when he left the court.
Police are now providing protection to the family of the well-known lawyers, Bancha Pramekhanaphon, 61, and Wijai Sukharom, 51, who were killed. Bancha’s wife Suphaphon Prameesanaporn and another lawyer, Wichai Udomthanapat, were injured in the attack.
Retired senior policeman Thanin, 67, a former inspector-general at the Royal Thai Police Office, was a defendant in a civil lawsuit filed by Bancha over land measuring about 3,800 rai in Tambon Khao Kaeo, in the Tha Mai district of Chanthaburi province.
