DSI chief Tharit Phengdit said the DSI investigators and public prosecutors agreed during a meeting on April 10 to press the sedition charge against 18 red-shirt leaders.

Tharit said he will send registered letters to the 18 red-shirt leaders, telling them to report to public prosecutors to acknowledge the charge during May 2 to 6. The letters will be mailed on Tuesday.

Tharit said Jatuporn Promphan and 17 other red-shirt were accused of violating the monarchy through their speeches made during the rally on April 10 2010.

Tharit said public prosecutors and DSI investigators agreed that there were enough evidences to substantiate the sedition charge against the 18 red-shirt leaders.
