A red shirt inmate died at Lak Si temporary prison yesterday, with forensic officers still working to determine the cause of his death. 

Wanchai Raksa-nguansilp, a 30-year-old red-shirt detainee, fainted and collapsed yesterday morning. He was rushed to hospital where doctors tried to save his life using a ventilator. He was later pronounced dead.

In October last year, Udon Thani provincial court sentenced Wanchai to 22 years and six months imprisonment for trespassing and burning Muang Udon Thani municipality office on May 19, 2010. He was later moved from the provincial prison to Lak Si prison for political prisoners.
