Bangkok, May 26 (ANI): Thailand's Deputy Prime Minister , Suthep Thaugsuban, said on Wednesday that the arrest warrant issued in the name of former premier Thaksin Shinawatra on terrorism charges was because there was good evidence backing the charges.

On Tuesday, the Department of Special Investigation (DSI), which sought the warrant, had submitted video footage backing the charges to the Criminal Court, and DSI chief Tharit Pengdit, his deputy and investigator testified before the court.

The Bangkok Post quoted Suthep as saying that the warrant was issued under due legal process and not because of personal issues.

Suthep said the government is not worried about any activity that might occur as a result of the warrant being issued.

Suthep said the political situation, especially the underground movement in the country, was still a matter of concern.

The government would consider whether to extend curfew again on Friday, he said. (ANI)
