The Department of Special Investigation (DSI) has charged Democrat Party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva and Democrat MP Suthep Thaugsuban for authorising the killing of anti-government protesters during the 2010 unrest in Bangkok. 

DSI chief Tarit Pengdith announced the joint decision of a tripartite team of investigators from the DSI, police and prosecutors at a meeting Thursday.

The decision marks the first charges against members of the Abhisit administration over deaths during the mass rallies in Bangkok.
